I was looking for books to read…and an associate recommended Karen Moning. If I had known some of the content, I may not have…but I’ve always been one to want to know how things end. 🙂 So I skim quickly past the suspect and on into the story lines…which are good.
Outside the aforementioned content, I like Mac [and Barrons too but that is another story]…she goes from shallow to fierce by trial. I think this type of heroine always appeals to me as it mirrors some of my own life. I also label versions of myself 🙂 and have improved greatly by trial…new depth, new thoughts, new priorities, etc.
Mac evolved from Rainbow Girl [what Barrons -*swoon* – called her] to something darker. I went from TBD (will come up with a moniker later lol) to a wiser and stronger person (TBD again!).
Evolution of Beauty & Strength
Just beauty…what do I do? I’m bored – let’s party.
😐 Thank God He kept working on me!
“Post-Infant to Pre-Battle”
Fading beauty and strength. Can I?
Fierce beauty and fiercer strength. I think I can, and I am! Why am I surprised?!
Making some choices is hard…but once their made, it is all downhill from there.
Bye bully! All things are new!
My favorite 🙂
Fiercely strong and beautiful. I know I can because I have. He kept me.
There is nothing like self-reflection to evaluate progress and choices…how did I arrive at this point – what choices contributed – what external factors contributed – and so on…I try to reflect often and it is prompted by both expected and random things – like sermons, interaction, reading [Scripture first, but just general thoughts on other books be they fiction or non], or watching. I’m not the deep type, but I don’t like being foolish – reflections helps me avoid repeating foolery!
Post-Battle, I’m stronger and more beautiful -> on the inside! While I wonder why I didn’t arrive here sooner, I thank God for His goodness during the process. He gave me a supportive family [once I lost my pride and filled them in lol], friends that became family, great churches filled with loving people, 20$ and 100$ tips from kind customers [no doubt touched by God], great jobs, and much more.
I’ve seen Him work, and I know He will…why do I still worry sometimes 😐 I should know better! He helped me become a woman I can be proud of. I’ve a ways to go, but I’m thankful for my progression.
I’m also more at peace with how my life has turned out. Hope strengthens, fear kills.
