I love Becky’s writings. I love her honesty. I love how she is practical and to the point. I love how she points right back to Jesus. I think she is just the ‘cat’s pajamas’ (I love that term! Because then I begin to picture a cat in pajamas.) Her latest post was one I could totally relate to. I’ve heard the same statement directed at me – more than once. And it’s not like I am trying to make it look like I have it ‘all together’ – in fact, I am honest when I have been struggling. I have been very transparent with the garbage I’ve been through in my life. I do kind of wish we’d stop judging each other in this regard – and, yes, it is judging. I wish we could give each other the benefit of the doubt instead of allowing jealousy to rule our assumptions of others.
I just appreciate what she says in her post, 5 Guidelines to Getting It Together. And you know what, maybe people do see me as ‘having it all together’ because I don’t complain about my husband – in fact, I cast him in a good light. I speak highly of him. And so I should. I’m his wife. And maybe people make their assumptions about me because I don’t complain about my body. If you can relate, too, then you’ll appreciate Becky’s post. OR – if you are one of those women who seem to think ‘we’ have it all together, maybe Becky’s post will shed some light on the misguided notion. Just hop on over to her site – I am sure you will love her like I do!
