i look cute today.

I'm a woman.  Shocking, I know.  My husband doesn't understand how I work.  He doesn't understand that I have 'cute days' and 'fat days'.  He just has 'days'.  But as a woman, I have emotions.  And they change a lot.  The hormones can be all over the place, and that little voice in my head can really try to tell me lies.  It's so difficult not to listen.  I so badly want to ALWAYS be a confident woman, content in who God created me to be.  But, He created me as a woman so unfortunately it doesn't work that way.  I have fat days, and skinny days.  I have days where I feel confident and nothing can get me down.  I have days where everything feels as if it could go wrong and I won't fit through the door frame.  Ouch.

Today, I'm having a confident day.  I'm working on being confident and loving myself the way God made me to be.  I look cute today! I know it's not about outward appearances.  But there is something about jeans that fit well, high heels and cute dangly earrings that just help make any woman feel better.  :)

But even better...there's something about feeling beautiful from the inside out because of the person God made me to be!!

1 Peter 3:3-4  'Don't be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyle, expensive jewelry or beautiful clothes.  You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God. '
