the uncommon woman

The uncommon woman understands her capacity for pettiness, selfishness, and a sinful bent that leads her away from the Almighty.  But her thoughts don't dwell there.  No, despite what she knows about herself, she entrusts herself fully to the One who will shape her into a thing of magnificence.  
Accepting acceptance means having the courage to face your foibles without diminishing your value.  Accepting acceptance means refusing to let other define you, because God already has.  Accepting acceptance means cherishing the fact that you've been bought with a price, and thus embracing the call to become more and more like Christ every day.

Some morning thoughts from Susie Larson taken from the uncommon woman.

That's probably the best book I read last year...
The best one I read this year was called Bittersweet by Shauna Niequist. She's Bill Hybel's daughter (the Willow Creek pastor in Chicago).
I miss you!

Thank you for recommendation...I will check it out...literally (pulling up the library page now). I miss you too..."but keep the old, one is silver and the other's gold." One day we will get the chance to sit and have a coffee or something the meantime, I am glad to read about your life in facebook format and we loved the valentine's card!
