Something to Think About

"People can be divided into three groups: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened." -Zuck

I was reading a book today called, "Becoming a Woman of Beauty and Strength" by Elizabeth George. It is a book on the book of Esther. Here is an excerpt from her book that I really enjoyed today.

"Our study, dear one, is all about character, about nurturing strong traits, about developing powerful inner qualities, qualities that qualify you to be known as a woman after God's own heart.
............Action is a mark of the "strength" we're learning about in our quest to become women of beauty and strength.

*Action signals the beautiful presence of courage, the ability to think..and act.. under duress.

*Action also speaks of values. It means we value something enough to try rather than tire, to get up and go on rather than give up.

*Action also exhibits faith. Only a strong trust in God can enable us to go to war and fight for what's right.
