I started a post about Christian women publishing their thoughts on the popular books going around right now and certain male-centered movies that just came out. I thought I was calling it what it was - a bunch of self-righteous mommies who were judging others when we are really called to love.

And then I had my husband proof read it.

And he said it sounded like I was "judging the judgers".... so I deleted it.

Here's what I want to say. Ladies, we are called to love. We were created to be nurturing, caring, loving, compassionate, gentle and forgiving. We are called to see the example in those gone before us and set the example for those who will come after us. We should be having each other over for lunch, holding another's crying, colicky baby, praying with our friends who are fighting with their husbands and praying over our children that they will grow to know and love God. We should be thankful, content and happy. We should be willing to serve others. We should be teaching our children and each other about giving, serving, loving Jesus and all that it involves.

I have many, many flaws. I also have some wonderful friends that I know, without a doubt, the Lord placed in my life to show me grace and provide me with much needed accountability. And I am thankful. I hope that each of you have someone like that in your life.

"Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Make allowance for each other's faults and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony." Col. 3:12-14
