Strength

(Yeah, I could totally do this.)

I would say that I am a pretty strong person.

Strong in the sense of my personality (which I'm assuming annoys people sometimes, but whatever) ... in the sense of being able to remain stoic when confronted with a lot of situations where I want to scream, cry, or roll my eyes ... in the sense of not being easily moved ... in the sense of being stubborn ... and I bet, if I had to, I could put a whoopin' on somebody (only if I had to ... a classy lady like myself would not dare fight like some street person) ...

So, yeah ... I'm strong.

But, there are times that I allow others to make me feel bad about myself.

Me?

Strong me?

Why would I let anyone else influence the way I see myself? Much less the way God, my Heavenly Father, sees me?

There is no one who should make me or you feel insecure or worthless.

No one.

Not even someone you love.

I'm done with this topic.

Moving on ...

It so amazes me that a wonderful and strong woman like yourself could deal with some of the same issues I deal with as a Christ follower of only two years. You are really an inspiration to me. I know that seems weird, that I would be inspired by something that you struggle with, but is is good to know that I am not the only one and also to know that I am not an idiot for not figuring it out yet. Ha ha! Thank you for you honesty and your heart. You are a great woman of God and I thank you dearly for all that you do for me and our church.

PS You have inspired be to start a blog.

Love ya, Phoebe

I was just about to log off of blogger when I saw this picture.

I HAD to see what in the world you did with it. And may I just say, you never disappoint.

Right on, sistah.
