Today is my daughter in law's birthday, which made me think of this quote it is one that we should put in every birthday card for every woman in the world. It goes like this...
"There are two important days in a woman's life-the day she is born and the day she finds out why."
~ Elaine Cannon
I have said this on more than one occasion, that it is important we find out what our mission and purpose in life is and also, to recognize how Satan works on us. I learned a long time ago that Satan can not tempt me with smoking, drinking, gambling,stealing etc. but where he seems to hurt me the most is... my self esteem. I daily have to work at that and remember no matter what I see in the mirror, that I am a daughter of God and I have great potential. Everyone has there weaknesses in life, it is suppose to be like that so we can learn and grow. But it is vital to be aware of exactly what your weaknesses and temptations are, so that you can stay far away from them. Keeping your eyes open and watching for those, I think is a great way to help protect and nurture yourself.
So today my birthday advice for my sweet daughter-in-law would be this...
~know what your mission is in life
~learn to love the person you see in the mirror and love others
~forgive yourself and others (remember know one is perfect)
~enjoy each day to the fullest
~ learn to listen to your body and take care of it
~ and remember your are a Daughter of God with great potential!
I guess this is great advice for all of us to remember. Hope you have a wonderful day!

"It's surprising how many persons go through life without ever recognizing that their feelings toward other people are largely determined by their feelings toward themselves, and if you're not comfortable within yourself, you can't be comfortable with others." ~ Sidney J. Harris
