    Julie- I could so identify with what you wrote. Life is just a Season of changes, isn't it? Some good, some bad…some just ARE! I can remember just about every feeling you describe and could add some. Thanks for reminding me that we are all connected by our emotions as women. Hugs to you- Diana

    I am so grateful that I joined the Tuesdays Unwrapped linky this week. Your words are inspiring.

    I have recently been pondering my role as a woman, in God's plan for this earth and in my own individual sphere – especially in my marriage. Because of what God wants for me – what He designed for me – I have found such joy in these autumn years of my life. I also celebrate fall!

    Oh, in my home I am the Pumpkin Spice.

    I can't tell you how much I needed that today. Have to doubt that your leading to post this was a "God thang", as I call it. I am the hurried mom of 3 kids and a way-too-busy-and not-so-frequently-home hubby and I feel like I sway between meeting myself coming, and crashing on the couch, and feel guilty either way. Thanks for the reminder that, when it is all said and done, I am a beautiful (even when my hair is a mess and I am still in my pj's at 3:00) child of God and I am fearfully and wonderfully made…regardless of the saddlebags, stretchmarks and dark circles that my children cause. (I love them, by the way…:)
    Blessings to you Proverbs 31 woman!!!

    Were you here with me today as I cried while I cleaned? Because that is just how I have been feeling today – I needed this!! Thank you for being my friend – I am blessed and honored to have you in my life as an example and a friend..I miss you and wish this blog wasn't the way I connected with you on a daily basis – instead I wish it was because I popped over and we decided to go get a pumpkin spice latte together! And, oh how my crafty skills would benefit from living by you and Denise!! I love you!

    Oh Julie, bless your heart for sharing such intimate feelings. I just praise the Lord for women like you who are willing to put themselves out there and share both the good and the bad of life. I'm a new follower of your blog, but have been thoroughly impressed with your creativity and your faithfullness to our Father in Heaven.

    I've been convicted lately about the state of affairs in my home. I feel like I'm slowly climbing out of the clutter that is a stay at home, home school, lived in all the time house.
    Thanks for the reminder of where to find my strength in this present job.

    Oh goodness… can I relate. I feel summer has slipped through my fingers. But I am excited for what September brings to life… routine, freshness, and of course that lovely pumpkins spice latte. Yep, that's right… Starbucks here in Canada has it out already!

    I have always felt that I could never live up to "The Proverbs 31 woman" but as I have grown older I realize as long as I am giving it my all and raising my children in a loving Christian home and surrounding them in Christ as much as possible then I am doing a pretty decent job! Thanks for this! I read the Proverbs 31 passage at my grandmas funeral! She was an AMAZING woman!

    Beautiful post, thanks for sharing. Fall is my favorite time of year, but it can get busy; I am reminded now to slow down and enjoy it all with focus and intent.

    Love this scripture and try to pattern my life after it daily. Sometimes it's hard, but nonetheless, I try. Thanks for the encouragement this morning. I too was wondering where August went…Time is flying and sometimes it's hard to keep up. Have a blessed day!
