|Outside of Gibbes Museum Of Art In Charleston this August, it was 94 degrees and 89 % humidity|
I have been feeling very much NOT what God expects of me, asks for me to be...
You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God. 1 Peter3:4
And to try to illustrate how I feel, I will show you first the actress that I believe God wants women( me) to be like..
|Olivia deHavilland as Mellie in Gone withThe Wind|
Her character was so sweet, self-sacrificing , kind and calm , and soft-spoken. Not me , well maybe kind but that's it, not calm or soft-spoken. I am more like this actress.....
Maureen O'Hara in McClintock , even though I don't go around screaming really, but I am very opinionated and a tad bossy.
Maureen in Parent Trap w/ Brian Keith , but I don't punch anyone...
or The Quiet man w/ John Wayne. I love watching Maureen O'Hara. I can relate to her. But again, feel that I should be more like sweet Mellie.
How on earth can God make such vastly different temperaments and personalities, and expect us to be like Mellie all the time? I feel like Scarlett feels below, about someone like Mellie.
I have run into many sweet, calm women lately. I think only if I was heavily sedated could I be that calm.
So what is God going to do with me? How have you become calm, if you are a calm person? Any tips? Don't tell me to pray, as I have been doing that, for a few decades.
Tell me who you relate to in the movies or a movie or book, that you feel just like inside or wish you were like too.
Have a nice evening,
