 I am cake.  I’m warm, soft and sweet.  The ingredients that make me up are usually wholesome. On the outside I have icing and it can be colorful, super sweet and attractive.  If you tried to just enjoy the icing without the cake it would eventually make you sick.  The icing is meant to enhance me, it’s the bonus. I’ve seen people eat the icing and throw away the rest.
I am a book.  I have a cover that may or may not belay my content. To really understand me you must read me, and all of me, not just choice sections.  If you are patient and thoughtful each word will be a revelation.   There are those who won’t even bother to read me because they’re judging me by my cover.
I am a geode.  If you’re not smart, and don’t know what to look for, you’ll pass me by.  I am strong, and I may be hard to crack, but if you know how to do it without harming me, I will give you all that is valuable and beautiful within.
I am a watch.  I am functional and beautiful.  My face can be designed simply or more elaborate, however what is behind my face is very complex and intricate and fragile.  If one is careless or not mindful of when I need to be recharged I will stop working.  Many people choose to purchase cheap watches and just dispose of them when they're done.  But if you make a wise choice, and treat me exceptionally, I can be a valuable legacy handed down from one generation to the next.
Now re-read this blog, replacing each italicized word with the word, “woman”. 
I am a woman, and unlike each italicized word, if I am thrown away, judged, passed by or disposed of, I cannot be replaced.  


  1. Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

    Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

    She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

    Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
    Honor her for all that her hands have done,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

    Proverbs 31:1,10,26,30-31 (KJV,NIV)

  2. I have a special HATE for human trafficking; for treating humans like they're a commodity and disposable. That is what this particular blog is about. Please take a look at the You Tube link provided and help if you're so inclined.
