A Strong Woman, or A Woman of Strength?

"She girds herself with strength
And makes her arms strong.
Strength and dignity are her clothing,
And she smiles at the future."

Proverbs 31:17, 25 NASB

A strong woman works out every day
to keep her body in shape...
but a woman of strength kneels in prayer
to keep her soul in shape...

A strong woman isn't afraid of anything...
but a woman of strength shows
courage in the midst of her fear...

A strong woman won't let anyone
get the best of her...
but a woman of strength gives
the best of her to everyone...

A strong woman makes mistakes and
avoids the same in the future...
a woman of strength realizes
life's mistakes can also be God's
blessings and capitalizes on them...

A strong woman walks sure footedly...
but a woman of strength knows God will
catch her when she falls...

A strong woman wears the look of
confidence on her face...
but a woman of strength wears grace...

A strong woman has faith that
she is strong enough for the journey...
but a woman of strength has faith
that it is in the journey
that she will become strong...

"But now, O Lord, You are our Father,
We are the clay, and You our potter;
And all of us are the work of Your hand."

Isaiah 64:8 NASB

1. For attractive lips,
Speak words of kindness.
2. For lovely eyes,
Seek out the good in people.
3. For a slim figure,
Share your food with the hungry.
4. For beautiful hair,
Let a child run his or her
fingers through it once a day.
5. For poise, Walk with the knowledge
you'll never walk alone.
6. People, even more than things,
have to be restored, renewed, revived,
reclaimed, and redeemed;
Never throw out anybody.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand
you'll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover
that you have two hands,
one for helping yourself,
the other for helping others.
7. The beauty of a woman is not in
the clothes she wears, the figure
that she carries, or the way she
combs her hair. The beauty of a woman
is seen in her eyes, because that
is the doorway to her heart,
the place where love resides.
True beauty in a woman is reflected
in her soul. It is the caring that
she lovingly gives, the passion that
she shows. And the beauty of a
woman only grows with passing years.

She came tonight as I sat alone
The girl I used to be,
And she gazed at me with her earnest eye
And questioned reproachfully:

Have you forgotten the many plans
And hopes I had for you?
The great career, the splendid fame,
all the wonderful things to do?

Where is the mansion of stately height
With all its gardens rare?
The silken robes that I dreamed for you
And the jewels in your hair?

And as she spoke, I was very sad
For I wanted her pleased with me,
This slender girl from the shadowy past
The girl that I used to be.

So gently rising, I took her hand
And guided her up the stairs
Where peacefully sleeping, my babies lay
Innocent, sweet, and fair.

And I told her that these are my only gems,
And precious they are to me;
That silken robes is my motherhood
Of costly simplicity.

And my mansion of stately height is love,
And the only career I know
Is serving each day in these sheltered walls
For the dear ones who come and go.

And as I spoke to my shadowy guest,
She smiled through her tears at me.
And I saw the woman that I am now
Pleased the girl I used to be.
