As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. -- Isaiah 55:10-11

Beautiful Women Part 1--Of Sizable Importance

In the last few weeks I've seen the topic of size and women's self-image on several blogs. As I prayed about this, the Lord gave me the most wonderful homework, and I pass it on to you.

Find in the Bible the size and weight of any of the following women:
The Shulamite Woman in Song of Solomon

I'll give you until Friday to find out, and then I'll tell you the rest of what God had to say about it.

Interesting assignment Jerri - you know I never thought about the weights of any of those ladies. I just thought of them as women I could learn from.

Ok I see your point that God has not put a size and weight on any of these ladies. That He considered that beautiful in and of themselves. So .... what else has he been telling you? I did just receive the book "Captivating" so that will be my reading as I recover from back sergery in the next few weeks.

Did my homework last night, and it was just as I suspected - not ONCE was height or weight mentioned.
"Just" beauty, wisdom, intelligence and most of all, favor. What a thing our current society has foisted on us! But to be honest, there has always been something- a false standard.
