”A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find her”
When I say that 'I am a Christian', I am not shouting that 'I am clean living. I'm whispering' I was lost, but now I'm found and forgiven'
When I say 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide
When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong. I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on
When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success. I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess
When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect. My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it
When I say 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain, I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon HIS name
When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou, I'm just a simple sinner who received God's good grace, somehow!
Pretty is as Pretty does but, Beautiful is just plain Beautiful
I am a survivor of extremely severe ritualistic childhood abuse and sadistic systematic torture. This blog has helped me get my voice back and documents the journey I'm on to heal from the trauma and damage caused by that appalling abuse. Now is the time for me to tell of MY experience by speaking the truth about MY life. I will be silenced no more! On this blog I share MY life, MY healing journey; helpful quotes/stuff I come across and MY thoughts along the way. The more I speak out the more liberated I am from the shame and trauma of the abuse. My broken wings are gradually being repaired. Without God in my life I wouldn't still be here. But somehow, I keep on staying alive, surviving and rarely, occasionally, living a little!

BEAUTIFUL CHRISTIAN WOMAN
A friend sent me the following poem and I thought it was so good it was worth sharing here.
