|Me, being Sci-Fi Fantasy weird and charming.|
|The Mommy Blogger.|
Would I trade my morning for hers? Not a chance. The imperfections in mine make it beautiful.
The "Mommy Blogger" of the Bible would be typified in Proverbs 31. Here's this woman, smack dab in the midst of a seriously man dominated world, and she is out there doing all kinds of things. This lady was a savvy business woman, a home-maker and a fantastic cook. If anyone could be seen as intimidating, it would be this lady, and there are a ton of apologetic Bible studies out there to prove that she is, indeed, seen as intimidating. She's making money on the side. She's got her own clothing industry, she's buying land, she's got her kids and husband decked out in the finest while she's compassionately giving to the needy. Here's one thing I'll guarantee: If she were living in our day, she would not be putting up with the title of "Mommy Blogger". Nor would she fit in one little niche. This gal was all over the map. I love her freedom to do and try all these things. I find it inspiring. Am I intimidated by her supposed perfections? Nope. Just like I'm not intimidated with the Mommy Blogger who can wake up in the morning singing a hymn. I find her inspiring. (Not that I want to sing a hymn, necessarily, but the fact that she can wake up singing is impressive.)
Let's do that! Let's have the freedom to try all kinds of things- don't let them put you in a niche. Be free to be you. And I'll be free to be me.
