A Little Bit of Lovely for Your Weekend

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. 
Philippians 4:8

“Being a woman created by God is such a privilege -and the gift of our femininity is something we can give both to ourselves and to the people around us. Just one flower, one candle, can warm up a cold, no-nonsense atmosphere with an aura of “I care”. Women have always had the ability to transform an environment, to make it comfortable and inviting. I believe we should rejoice in that ability and make the most of it.”
~Emilie Barnes, The Heart of Loveliness

“To me, a godly woman is one who possesses inner peace and tranquility, she doesn’t have to prove herself to anyone. She is strong, and yet she doesn’t use her strength to control or dominate people; neither does she depend on recognition from others. Hers is an inner contentment and satisfaction based not on accomplishments, positions, or authority, but on a deep awareness of God’s eternal and personal love for her.

That kind of inner peace, strength, confidence  and tranquility comes from depending on God, obeying him, drawing on his strength and wisdom, learning to be like him. When this happens in our lives, we gradually grow free of anxious competitiveness and aggressiveness   We have no need to prove our worth and value because we know how much we are worth in God’s sight. And then we are free to reach out in love to others.”

~Emilie Barnes, The Heart of Loveliness

The beautiful woman is disciplined, chaste, discreet, deferring, gracious  controlled, “together”. This kind of woman God considers godly, which means she’s got His qualities  and she’s close to His heart. This is “His kind of woman.”
