Thoughts to ponder for women . . .

A few statements from Elisabeth Eliot out of her book Let Me Be a Woman.

You can’t make proper use of a thing unless you know what it was made for, whether it is a safety pin or a sailboat. 
Chapter 5 page 13

And as the bird easily comes to term with the necessity of bearing wings when it finds that it is, in fact, the wings into freedom – so the woman who accepts the limitations of womanhood finds in those very limitations her gifts, her special calling – wings, in fact, which bear her up into perfect freedom, into the will of God.
Chapter 8 page 23
