Hard-headed woman

Have you ever been exasperated with your own tendencies that you’ve often wondered what it would be like to be someone else? You know, the kind, sweet, compassionate type..that everybody thinks of when they think of: sweet Christian woman?

I’ve already told you how I tried to force myself into my version of a gentle and quiet spirit. If you have forgotten, you can go read it. I’ll wait for you…

O.K. now you’re back.

So, you know that I am trying to accept this business of being strongly opinionated, outspoken, passionate, articulate, and tenacious, but I always wonder if other people are sort of fooled. Like maybe they think that I am as sweet as the day is long. That I just look for babies to hold and flowers to kiss in the sunset. Well, I do love to hold babies and dance in the sunset, but if the truth be known, there are “softer” gals out there.

So, I’m talking to one of the elders from our church in a little conversation with my husband there, and he says, “there’s a difficult situation (and describes it) and I got to thinking: I need a hard-headed woman.. and I thought of you“

You know that song by Cat Stevens, I need a hard headed woman?

First of all, I really did not know that song. Cat Stevens hardly knew me 1976, but it is nice that he wrote a song about me and all?

And how could I refuse the opportunity to serve the Lord when someone gave me such a compliment as this? And as you can imagine, it is going to be very challenging. Feel free to pray for me. Even a hard-head like me could be daunted by this opportunity, of which I’ll spare you the details.
