We woman love handbags and shoes, and you know I love a deal. This is one I have been saving up for.  So, for as long as I can remember I have wanted a certain type of handbag.  It is one of those that woman covet.  Lucky and cherished is the woman whose man buys her one.  It is like the finest diamond.     Hermes <em>Birkin Bag</em> 40 Alligator <em>Bag</em> Bleu De Malte Matte Berkins Are Like Diamonds

The man, who knows women, knows the importance a good pair of shoes and a handbag of quality mean to her.  The shoes make a statement of who she is and how she feels. But the handbag says the quality of her being.  The fabric she is made of.  What is important to her, to him to them as a couple as individuals.  Can she be bought for a price and if so what is her price?

I believe if you are a woman who likes good things and this doesn’t mean you are materialistic, you treat yourself with the respect you deserve.  You know the difference between a man of quality, moral and standards and a man who just wants a good moment.  It all is about how “He” treats us.  Isn’t it?  They can give us all the greatest things in life but make us pay for it in other ways.  Or they can be true in both.  Treat us good in both areas. For this type of man we are more than a trophy wife.  For this type of man we would be his mate rather than his ride.

 Recently, I discovered that I was important myself, and am important to others.  Self respect when you have been hurt is of the utmost importance.  We can all choose to live in the painful moments in life or we can choose to rise above.  Handbags are just one of those things in life we can use to express ourselves.  Quality, standards, integrity, honesty, morals, beliefs all of these things are expressed in our being and in the manner in which we conduct ourselves.  Some of us are civil, some pray, some gossip, some shop, some choose plastic surgery for their bodies, some of us just internalize things we shouldn’t in the hope we will be blessed, or it is the only cooping skill we have.  All of us women have different coping skills, some learned behaviors and some created by life circumstances.

One of my coping skills is to purchase a new handbag or shoes.  “Walk a mile in my shoes.” I always say before you judge me.   After you walk that mile, if you’re for me stay with me if not get out and return the money and wear and tear of that mile walked, so I can afford a new handbag and a new pair of shoes that were town while you walked that mile with me judging me.  The handbag I purchase will carry you in prayer I hope will be blessed in your life.

What does your handbag and shoes say about you?

As a meeting and event planner we get to visit many places.  The amazing thing is everyone assumes it is this glamour job where big money is made and were fancy cloths, commercialism is the big thing.  The reality is for me it has never been so much about the things but about the people I meet.  Their spirit which I am so bless to be with.  Sometimes we click and sometimes we don’t, that is where grace is on those moments were we don’t get along but we still make it work for the client and for His name sake.

Today Good Friday was one of those days, when His spirit was there, in a vineyard at a wedding.  I was there to check out the venue for an upcoming event. Not really thinking about the day, the hour or that there would be a wedding there.  I knew it was Good Friday; I received my pastor’s tweet.  I thought to myself after I check this venue out I will attend service at noon.  Here is the story that I am sadden about, but none the less true.

“And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment”

Was I this man, or woman, am I not prepared for the things to come.  Did I not pray to HIM all of my life?  What authority am I walking in?  With whom am I walking?  These are questions we should all ask ourselves from time to time. It is because of HIM that I have since a child felt safe, since I was hurt.  It is true, recently I have been through a great deal of trepidation, but I always believed I thanked Him daily.  Was this not enough?

It was wonderful to see HIM again even if was for a moment.  HIS grace is amazing and His love profound, deep and sensitive. HE is gentle, what every beat up woman needs, what every child should know, see and feel, what every adult should desire to become.  HE walks with me at my lowest of moments and HE carries me when I can’t walk anymore.  I am on this day and forever always thankful I know HIM who lives in me and mine.

Today, I think I was the one not dressed for the wedding!  So glad I will be there on Easter.

What's Exciting Today?

There are some days when I wake up and look out my window, I realize it is going to be a calm day.  Today is on of those.
There are no great moments of reality to set in,
There are no great mountains to climb,
There are no great, important people to see,
Just calm..

Calm knowing today doesn't have to be  anything other than calm.

Hope in 2020!
