A woman in her glory, a woman of beauty, is a woman who is not striving to become beautiful or worthy or enough. She knows in her quiet center where God dwells that he finds her beautiful, has deemed her worthy, and in him, she is enough.

me: You’re so right! Waiting is always very challenging. But there’s such a thing as actively waiting, and I believe prayer is that. We’re holding onto the hope that God is about to do something (as well as doing our part). Congratulations to you, too! When is your date?

Praying the right job will be presented to your fiancé at the most perfect time — knowing our God, I am sure it will be. Hold fast during this time of waiting as it builds yours and your fiancé’s patience (and faith)! Matthew 6:33 comes to mind. As you said, God is good and He provides :)

I have noticed that when all the lights are on, people tend to talk about what they are doing – their outer lives. Sitting round in candlelight or firelight, people start to talk about how they are feeling – their inner lives. They speak subjectively, they argue less, there are longer pauses. To sit alone without any electric light is curiously creative. I have my best ideas at dawn or at nightfall, but not if I switch on the lights – then I start thinking about projects, deadlines, demands, and the shadows and shapes of the house become objects, not suggestions, things that need to done, not a background to thought.
