Simply Fabulous My Dear

A little southern girl friend of mine gave me something fabulous...
The "Simply Fabulous" Award! It's from Lindsay over at Southern Cinderella. Thank you Linds :)

These are the prerequisites for the award:
~Post this award on your blog.
~Blog about a woman  that you think is *fabulous* and explain why you think she rocks.
[She may be real life, celebrity or fictional]
~Pass the award on to 5 other bloggers that you think are deserving.

My fabulous woman is any woman who is whole.
A whole woman in every aspect of the word.
She is complete, unbroken, undivided, and full.
Her mind is heavy with her dreams and hopes, and is on track and willing to learn.
Her heart holds love and desires; and she is ready to share room in it for
her family and all that breaths life.
Her smile is beaming with kindness and is given away in a split second.
Her eyes are set so that we can see deep down into her very soul.
Her ears are ready to listen and keep many secrets.
Her hands are talented and prepared for work; helping, creating, making, and holding.
Her arms are far-reaching and willing to embrace the moment.
Her shoulders are strong enough to bare the burdens of the whole world.
 Her legs are equipped for running and walking beside her loved ones;
they are prepared to travel the distance; and even for kneeling.
Her body is predestined for the Lord’s labor of love here on this earth.
Although she may not be physically whole...
she can still do all these things and so much more.
Her capability is unlimited.
She is absolute and total.
She is without a doubt FABULOUS.

The FABULOUS bloggers *I couldn't just pick five* that I am giving this award to are:

Angie who is Grateful at Rambling from a Grateful Heart 

Gwendolyn who loves Shabby Chic at A Charming Home

Sares who adores everything PINK at Loveleigh Treasures

Amy who is working on Discipline at Daily Pleasures

Caroline who is Blooming at Constantly Evolving

Kamana who is Believing and Balancing at Journaling Through Photos

Please do not feel left out~I have more awards to share!
All of you and so many more are not just Fabulous but beautiful in so many ways.
I love being a part of bloggerville with all of you.

I am a kept woman
You see, there were a few times when I thought I
Would lose my mind,
But GOD kept me sane. ~Isaiah 26:3

There were times when I thought I could not go on,
But the LORD kept me moving. ~Genesis 28:15

At times, I've wanted to lash out at those whom I
Felt had done me wrong,
But the LORD kept my mouth shut.. ~Psalm 13

Sometimes, I think the money just isn't enough,
But GOD has helped me to keep
The lights on, the water on,
The car paid, the house paid, etc.. ~Matthew 6:25 -34

When I thought I would fall, HE kept me up.
When I thought I was weak, HE kept me strong! ~I Peter 5:7 and Matthew11:28-30

I’m am kept in so many ways…
I'm blessed to be kept.

Be the kind of woman that every morning when your feet hit the floor the devil says
"Oh crap, she’s up!"

Hoping you are having a Simply Fabulous day!

Cora, you are the sweetest thing! Thanks so much for the mention. I am truly honored!

I love the "Kept" poem. It's one of my favorites. But now I have a new favorite-- this fabulous woman poem is FABULOUS! As I'm reading throught it, it brings to mind the Proverbs 31 virteous woman that I so desire to be, yet fall short of.

Thanks for sharing of your heart and soul. You are beautiful inside and out, my dear friend! =]
