Passionate women, speaking out and taking action

I am inspired.
you don’t have to look very far to find women providing inspiration, wisdom and practicalities. Here’s the latest selection that has inspired me:
A celebration of  female world leaders from the Sophia network.
Women blogging about and taking action for the environment, reclaiming wasteland for reforestation and honey production, highlighting good farming practice .
Women sharing their working  lives with us, the world with us, and their wisdom:
JenX finding meaning for us:

*** One of the greatest lessons in my life is that my greatest losses ushered in the most profound deliverances. Now, when I see loss on the horizon, I look also for that from which I am being spared and saved. Surely the Lord restores the years the locusts have eaten. The best is yet to be because the best things are those that moth and rust cannot destroy. And, I need to tell Sarah Palin, hope is working out great for me. Hope does not disappoint. This the Apostle Paul wrote in his letter to the Romans:

“…But we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.”

I wonder, if you are a woman,  what has this twelfth of the month been like for you?
