Mr Milquetoast

Dr. G. Campbell Morgan told about a friend of his and his wife’s who was a very brilliant woman. She had a strong personality, was an outstanding person, and was not married. He asked her one day the pointed question, “Why have you never married?” Her answer was, “I have never found a man who could master me.” So she never married. May I say that until a woman finds that man, she would make a mistake to get married. If she marries a Mr. Milquetoast, she will be in trouble from that day on.
I thought that this quote was too good not to pass along - as it is the reason I have passed up potential suitors.

I also believe that it has provided a good word of the day: Milquetoast - a very timid, unassertive, spineless person, especially one who is easily dominated or intimidated.

It's been a while since I've updated! I need to be more faithful at posting.... I'm making some layout changes (along with a "China-fied" header) and will be putting up some new posts shortly.

the new header for my other blog Filia Pacem

In the meanwhile, please swing by The Empowered Traditionalist where blogger Christa Taylor is giving away a copy of Uncompromising - Hannah Farver's new book (Click here to read the first 22 pages!).

Here's the giveaway. It ends TODAY!:

Also, for those who don't know - I am headed TO CHINA!!! In about three weeks I will be on my way to spend some time with missionaries in the northern city of Harbin. I can't wait to bring back pictures and stories to post for you :)
