A woman who fears The Lord…

Something happened when I turned 30.

I used to work 60+ hours a week-no problem. Now I max out at 45-50.

The other day at the gym-as I wheezed onto the floor-Daniel looked at me and said, “You really need to do more cardio.” All I could do was shake my head between gasps of air.

The eye wrinkles have started.  And can I just ask what is up with those random facial hairs?!!


I can’t remember ever thinking about my appearance and health as I have in the past few months.  Maybe it’s my age, I’m not sure; but this certain verse from the Bible keeps going through my mind.

“Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain; but a woman who fears The Lord is to be praised.” Proverbs 31:3

I don’t want people to think of me for what I looked like; I want them to remember my character. How did I make them feel? What did I do to encourage them? Was I there when they needed a friend?

“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.” Kahlil Gibran

I feel really vulnerable even admitting this but just in case you feel insecure about something remember; God made you. You are perfect just the way you are…eye wrinkles and all.
