Today is a special day because I am welcoming a whole other group of ladies to join the Get Real, Woman family! THE ROSE is a group of women who have received a beautiful red rose from me or my friends Sarah or Kay last week at West Chester University. Once a woman gets a rose from us, they are forever welcome to be in THE ROSE. It's like a club, but more like a common bond. Women who share a common story.
Speaking of story, that is exactly what I am wanting to write about today. We all have a story. Some of us like to share their story as much as possible and find ways to relate to their friends and....even strangers they meet. Others like to NOT share their story...ever...because it brings too many questions from those listening and thus is exhausting just to get through the story un-interrupted. Some of us have never thought that you have a story...one that is unique to you and that has power to encourage, challenge, strengthen and...well, even entertain and bring joy to others. Welp, whoever you are, dear one, you have a grand story!
My story is unique. Your story is unique. Our story of coming together with this common ground of a blog called THE ROSE is unique. Sharing your story is important. Over the next few posts, I will be writing about this STORY thought.
So, even if you are the woman who loves your story or who thinks your story is no good or that your story is old and boring. If you are a woman who hasn't thought, up until you read this blog post, that you ever had a story to tell. NOW you all most definitely have a story; your story of receiving a beautiful red rose from a stranger with a tag on it that led you to THE ROSE blog and then led you to us, here at Get Real, Woman!.
May this blog encourage and challenge all the women who read it. May it cause each one of you to look deeper into God's Word, the Bible, and discover what Truth is. I know, and those who follow this blog know that my blog has not had a recent blog post in awhile, but it has more than 50 blog posts that are filled my heart's thoughts on my pursuit to being a woman of Truth. Be encouraged. Enjoy your day! You are prayed for and you are deeply loved.
