One Flaw In Women

By the time the Lord made woman,
He was into his sixth day of working overtime.
An angel appeared and said,
“Why are you spending so much time on this one?”
And the Lord answered, “Have you seen my spec sheet on her?
She has to be completely washable, but not plastic,
have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable,
and be able to run on diet soda and leftovers,
have a lap that can hold four children at one time,
have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken
and she will do everything
with only two hands.”
The angel was astounded at the requirements.
“Only two hands!? No way!”
And that’s just on the standard model?
That’s too much work for one day.
Wait until tomorrow to finish.”
But I won’t,” the Lord protested.
“I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own

She already heals herself when she is sick
AND can work 18-hour days.”
The angel moved closer and touched the woman.
“But you have made her so soft, Lord.”
“She is soft,” the Lord agreed.
“but I have also made her tough.

You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish.”

“Will she be able to think?" Asked the angel.

The Lord replied, “Not only will she be able to think,
she will be able to reason and negotiate.”
The angel then noticed something,
and reaching out, touched the women’s cheek.
“Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model.
I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one.”
“That’s not a leak,” the Lord corrected.

 “That’s a tear!”
“What’s the tear for?” the angel asked.
The Lord said, “The tear is her way of expressing her joy,
her sorrow, her pain, her disappointment, her love,
her loneliness, her grief, and her pride.”
The angel was impressed.
“You are a genius, Lord.
You thought of everything!
Woman is truly amazing.”
And she is!
Women have strengths that amaze men.
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness, love, and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.
They don’t take “no” for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel
and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about
a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member,
yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss
can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all shapes, sizes, and colors.
They’ll drive, fly, walk, run, or e-mail you,
to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope, and love.
They have compassion and ideals.
They give moral support to their family and friends.
Women have vital things to say and everything to give.
However, if there is one flaw in women, it is that they forget their worth!
I have found that life is a series of events that we either make the best of or let it get the best of us. And, through all of its ups and downs, faith, love, laughter, friends, and dancing—in your heart and with your feet—all somehow help us feel better as we grow and learn through each and every event that comes our way. I hope you all keep on dancing.

Sometimes a dream gets redirected, so keep your eyes and heart open while you continue to strive for your ultimate goal. Consider enjoying what you love in different ways as you continue to climb toward your ultimate summit. Life is a journey not a destination, and you should enjoy the trip along the way and not spend your days being unhappy until your ultimate dream comes true. God can use you along the way, too, as you enjoy using your gifts and talents on a daily basis.


What is God’s plan for your life? It you seek it, I believe you will find it.

Inspiring Quote of the Day

Thank God No Matter What Happens 1Thessalonians 5:18

“Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…it makes sense of our past, and brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

~Melody Beattie
