A Woman's Heart...A Poetic Journey

Happy Monday everyone!

I created this beautiful cross and heart key bracelet a few days ago. 

When writing a description for the bracelet I was looking for a quote that would fit and one came to mind: 

"A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
that a man should have to seek Him first to find her." 

So I began to search on the internet and saw that this is linked to beautiful poem said to be by Maya Angelou but is actually by Carol Wimmer.

I actually ended up finding out that the quote is by author, Max Lucado!

Here is the poem by Carol Wimmer:

by Carol Wimmer

When I say... "I am a Christian" I'm not shouting "I'm clean livin'" 
I'm whispering "I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven." 

When I say... "I am a Christian" I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide. 

When I say... "I am a Christian" I'm not trying to be strong. I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on. 

When I say... "I am a Christian" I'm not bragging of success. I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess. 

When I say... "I am a Christian" I'm not claiming to be perfect, My flaws are far too visible but, God believes I am worth it. 

When I say... "I am a Christian" I still feel the sting of pain.. I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name. 

When I say... "I am a Christian" I'm not holier than thou, I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow! 

This is such a beautiful poem and has me wanting to write again! God are you trying to tell me something??? Lol! Think I will try to find some time this week and come up with something for ya!

Have a great week everyone!

~Be beautiful, inspired, and blessed!
