One of my favorite things in the world is "girl talk". Those discussion between good friends that are often full of both laughter and tears, joy and grief, acceptance and advise. Those kinds of conversations leave me feeling so loved, so valued (and normally full coffee / tea). I have always wished to have conversations with certain women in history and to soak up all their wisdom-- and quite honestly, to have a little "girl talk".
So, from one woman to another,
"Women of God can never be like the women of the world.
the world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender.
there are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind.
there are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined.
we have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith.
we have enough greed; we need more goodness.
we have enough vanity; we need more virtue.
we have enough popularity; we need more purity."
From the wise, Margaret Dyreng Nadauld.
