She's the Man

  1. I can remember always wanting to be a boy because I had an older brother who was the first grandchild on both sides. He was adored, his every move was attention getting. I insisted that I wear his hand me down clothes.  I  was able to dress that way as long as we lived in California and Alaska. Kindly church members would give my mom dresses for me but I would never wear them. Then we moved to Virginia and I was forced to wear dresses. My mom allowed me to wear jeans to Sunday School one time but the peer pressure was too much.  I wore dresses after that. When I  married and had a strong willed two year old I turned to God and started attending Bible study. Then when my children were 11 and 5 I came down with fibromyalgia. That drove me to prayer. God used those things in my life to help me to trust that He made me just the way He wanted me. I'm not good at anything much ( my husband said one time that I was like a BMW--not outstanding at anything but above average in everything.) But with God's help my children turned out great, and I have a prayer ministry.   I'm a slow learner but I think the best thing we can teach our kids is to love others and love God.  If we are going to compare ourselves to anybody it should be to Jesus!  When believers see Him face to face we will be like Him!  Below is a clip from a movie I enjoyed.  It shows how difficult it is for a girl to be a boy!
