WONDROUS WOMAN

wonder_woman_movie_poster_3

Today being a woman (especially a mom) requires great courage.  Generations from the sixties and on have been hammered with thoughts that they must be strong role models for their children, work hard in the workplace and at home, bring home the bacon, set the rules of discipline, serve as a chauffeur, fight off bullies, attend all extra curricular activities, decide where to live, how to pay for it and how to make it a home.

Things used to be so much easier for women, when they were in partnership with their husbands.  Believe me, it wasn’t like the proverbial “Leave it to Beaver” life for most stay at home moms.  We worked hard at balancing the budget, making clothes for our kids to save money, stretching a dollar to the nth degree.  We spent time teaching them the alphabet, how to read, how to listen, how to share and how to love and respect others.

We often looked like something like the cat dragged in when hubby can home at the end of a hard day at work.  All the things that moms now pay to have done by outsiders, was done and is still done by stay at home moms.

So enters “Wonder Woman” this summer in yet another remake of a classic super hero. She can fight off all enemies with a single blow, she’s strong and courageous and to top it off, she’s beautiful.  I’m not saying that Wonder Woman is a bad role model for our young girls, but she certainly isn’t a realistic one.  The world sets unattainable images of women  – aka Barbie dolls, movie and rock stars, perfect teeth, toned bodies, beautiful hair and then wonders why they get easily depressed.

The true wonder woman is described in Proverbs 31 as one who gets up early each day to tend to the needs of her family.  She works well into the night for the same purpose.  She has a true servant’s heart. This is what Jesus demonstrated throughout His life. All the outward appearance is merely a deception.  It’s what lies within the heart that matters.  Teach your young women how to be real wonder women.

Proverbs 31:30  “Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.”

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. I see where I am going wrong now, I have wanted to be Wonder Woman since I was about 10 😀 My heart has been fixed on the outer (wo)man. I haven’t been to see the film yet but if I do I will be doing a Bible Study straight after, probably covering topics like idolatry and contentment!
