Chapter 9 {A Field of Dreams}

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become your character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny. 

"She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard."
Proverbs 31:16

I'll admit, here's another verse that is on my "Things to Conquer" list.  Along with getting up before the sun, the business side of life is something that my brain doesn't often comprehend. 
 But!  Never fear, it's on the list! =)

Ever heard of the findings of "right brain-left brain" research?  Supposedly one side of the brain controls the creative functions and the other side is our practical functions.
The woman who is beautiful in God's eyes has fully and gloriously developed both sides of her brain.  In the creative realm, she's a visionary--a person given to dreaming and imagining.  
When we, in the quest for our dreams, seek and follow God's wisdom and add our own hard work to the pursuit, everyone benefits.
Here are six P's for a beauty plan in seeing our dreams come true. 

*Patience--so that you will wait before you act when opportunities arise
*Prudence--so that you will carefully think things over while you're waiting
*Prayerfulness--so that you will seek the Lord's wisdom while you are waiting and thinking
*Petition--so that you will willingly consult your husband--or your parents =D--after you've waited, and thought, and prayed
*Purpose--so that God will guide your heart in the right direction, in HIS direction
*Perseverance--so that you will do whatever it takes to make your dreams come true

See you soon!
