The fragrance of a woman should be light, engaging and intoxicating with delights of purity…~Stylicia~
Before a girl’s turn came to go in to King Xerxes, she had to complete twelve months of beauty treatments prescribed for the women, six months with oil of myrrh and six with perfumes and cosmetics. Esther 2:12 (NIV Version)
Today I was reminded how beautiful and powerful it is to be a woman. So many times we neglect ourselves and forget that God has created us to be feminine. The word feminine is best described as having the characteristics of a soft,tender and ladylike disposition. Many women lose sight of embracing their womanhood which result in them not taking care of their womanly nature. It is important women understand how significant it is to be the elegant, soft spoken, dainty and attractive lady that God has called us to be. We constantly get caught in distractions which take us away from nurturing our own needs and cares. We have to be aware of what daily regiments are needed for us to survive in a man made world. The essential lifestyle of a woman is pampering herself mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically being immersed in her womanhood. Many women neglect themselves constantly and do not take care of their own needs.It is our job to immerse ourselves in pampering, perfumes and taking care of every aspect and need of our body. We need to care for ourselves whether we buy new clothes, get our hair done, nails done, buy the latest perfume or makeup; this is recognition of us embracing our femininity and tapping into to our feminine nature.It is so important we no longer overlook our own personal needs and put them on the back burner. It is never good for a woman to not care about her well being. A good friend of mine reminded me of how much I had neglected myself by not nurturing by own femininity. She helped me realize how important it was to start taking care of me again. It has been a great 8 months of beautification for myself. Today, God reminded me how beautiful, sweet, and indulging it is to take care of myself. When I went shopping today for perfumes and scents it made me realize how vital it is to take care of my needs first. So, I challenge you to spend 12 months in renewing your mind, body and soul; saturating yourself with your feminine nature.Ladies, never be scared to take care of your needs first and foremost. It is essential to your feminine nature and power you hold within.Never again allow your feminine needs to be put on the back burner. Always take the time to pamper yourself from head to toe, your mind, body & soul cannot live without it!
