At the Post Office

Dear Viewers,

Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and saw the complete opposite of how you've been living? It's weird, because when I look in the mirror, I see who I want to be. I see a woman of strength, compassion, love, charity, wisdom, grace and beauty. Yet the life I live does not seem to reflect the same things that my reflection projects. I see women of all types, shapes and sizes walking around and looking as though they have it all together. And I have to wonder, "Is it just me?". Am I the only one (or at least in a minority of women) unable to tap into and dwell within her majestic greatness? Then it dawned on me. I can't grasp what I want while using both hands to cling to what I think I need. I need to take a long deep look at what is standing between myself and my crown, remove them and (re)claim what is meant to be mine.


Woman in the Mirror

Beautifully expressed and commonly felt emotion. So often we lose track to the fact that we are supposed to love ourselves - that love itself BEGINS with us, so we'd best culture it in ourself. Love your blog and will follow - hope you'll come by mine and comment too.

You have acquired a skill that not many people can grasp.
When you look in the mirror and see beyond your circumstances, and see beyond right now and see you blessed THAT is how God sees us! He is not looking at our sin, dirt, or circumstances He is seeing us the way He intended us to be. He is seeing us BLESSED!!
Keep seeing what God sees!

I really enjoyed the post. It expresses what a number of women have felt and/or will feel.
