guest posting at (in)courage

Tomorrow (or today, if you're reading this on Sunday), I'm posting over at (in)courage under the "Daily Guests" column. It's my first guest post and I can't help but smiling that it also happens to appear on Father's Day because I hope that whatever and whenever I write, that it's for Him and because of Him. Happy Father's Day, Abba. :)

Thank you for your honest post. It hit me hard for I AM one of those women who never leave the house without being fully made up. I even put on make up at our primitive campsite :)
My mother, my rock, my inspiration died many years ago when I was just 21 years old. It seems that I hold on tightly to anything I remember her saying and most advice was on target, uplifting and inspired by God BUT.....
On my thirteenth birthday she gifted me with a grand selection of makeup and a card that read "If the barn needs paining, paint it". I have lived by these words for the past forty years. I too had a daughter and I wondered what would happen when she became old enough to wear make up. Praise God that I was able to make her feel beautiful and loved by God and I that she never touches the stuff. She laughts at me when I apply mine at the campground but sees no reason to use it herself. Hopefully some day I will have the strength to love myself just how I am....but I'm not there yet.
