I love this quote.  Love it.

For me it serves as a reminder that too much of any good trait can become a bad trait.  I am direct.  Often painfully so.  I suspect that it comes from growing up around women who took forever to get to the point.  What do you want me to do?  Just tell me!

As a result of dodging the passive aggressive card, I often “cut to the chase.”  I have been told that I am occasionally intimidating.  Somewhere there has to be middle ground but I have yet to find it.

I suspect that the answer lies in love.  See those around me as God’s children just like me.  See his spark lighting them from within.  Remember that they may not be doing it my way, but that’s okay.  No one said my way was the only way.  It is simply another way to do it.

Hmm.  That might work.  “Here’s another way we could do it…”  “Here’s something I think we should try…”

Last night, my husband and I went to the hockey game.  In general, I am not a sports nut.  I couldn’t care less.  Unless you put me in front of a hockey game.  I also spend a great deal of time watching the crowd.

Weeknight games are often themed.  Last night was Pride Night.  Throughout the night, video of various players would flash up on the big screen.  “If you can play, you can play.”  Think about it a second.  If you are a hockey player, they don’t care if you fly the rainbow flag.  You are welcome to play the game.

What does this have to do with beauty?  Another set of images also flashed up on the big screen.  Throughout the night, the camera would focus on various people in the audience dancing to the music or cheering on the team.  One of their favorites was a person dressed in drag.  It was clear, this was a look meant to turn heads and it was a look that took hours to pull off from silvered dark hair to stage worthy makeup and a rainbow tea length dress.  The Queen Mother carries herself with less dignity.

Beauty isn’t a matter of makeup, hair color or just the right nail polish.  It also isn’t choosing a more natural look.  It is the inner strength, courage and dignity needed to be yourself.

You don’t have to be hard to be strong. Think about water and wind.  These are two of the strongest forces on earth.  But unless water is frozen, neither are hard.  But the influence so much.

You can be soft.  You can be golden.  And you can still have the strength needed to do His work.

Did you know the butterfly is a Christian symbol for the resurrection?
