Hee Hee. I giggle at some of the responses I got. My friends are so diverse if you put them all in a room together and discussed religion or politics, there could be casualties. So I won't be mentioning any famous political talk show hosts today.
I have been thinking all weekend about the ladies and why we are so hard on each other and ourselves (Good point, Elizabeth). Maybe that is the reason. If I won't give myself a break, how can I give someone else one. I can't be a total slob as long as there is someone else out there messier than me. I can't be too fat as long as there is someone out there fatter than me. The rules of comparison are cut-throat and you can never win, even if you "win". So why do we do it? Why do we constantly compare?
I really want to be the kind of person who makes people feel good about who they are and who I am. I want to be someone comfortable in my own skin. I want to understand what it means to say I am a daughter of The King. I want to take it in that His grace is sufficient for me.
The real life application of that is what is so hard.
