A little bit about GracefulMaidenhood

Greetings to all who are reading this. This is our first post and as such we would like to explain what you might find here if you choose to visit again. This blog is a way to share with others what Yahweh is doing in our lives as we strive to please Him in all we do. Us three sisters, Sara, Aimee, and Whitney, have some hopes for this blog.
The first is to meet and share with like minded followers of Him who made us all. The second being that we might strengthen and encourage (Yahweh willing) others in the walk of being a graceful maiden for Him. Thirdly, we would love to share our day to day activities and our family happenings.
What does 'Graceful Maidenhood' mean to us? Please don't think we are referring to young maidens that always speak softly, have smooth hands, and never run into anything but always remain poised. While we do seek to keep our voices kind and peaceful, two of us sisters have major issues in not running into stuff. We seem to be incurable klutzes that will stub our toes twice a day. The term 'graceful maidenhood' means something much deeper to us.
To us it means the we are living out our maidenhood in a way that is pleasing to Yahweh. As we live our lives unto Him, we find grace in His sight and then He pours His grace out on us. We truly believe that while He has grace for all, when we follow the path He has set before us, we find favour in His sight. We are also reminded of what it means to be gracious. In Webster's New World Dictionary (1957) the meaning of Gracious is as follows: 1. having or showing kindness, courtesy etc. 2. merciful; compassionate. 3. polite to supposed inferiors.
As we strive to be handmaidens of Yahweh, the Great I AM, we pray that we will be gracious in all our doings. Feel free to share any thoughts that you might have. We only ask that Yahweh will be exalted in all. The Lord bless and keep you all ~ Sara
