Celebrating womanhood

A woman of God

That is what I want to  be – pure, virtuous, holy

Pleasing in your sight, my God

A woman after Your heart

One who obeys Your voice

Able to discern what pleases You most.

Dearest Lord, give me a heart

That yearns and seeks to do Your will

A woman of God – that is what I want to be

I think of my sisters in the world on this day

A day set aside to celebrate womanhood

Young or old, beautiful or plain

What does it matter?

Women are not just weak or strong, haughty or little in God’s eyes

We are mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, friends and more

Made in the image and likeness of God

Indeed, the world would be a poor place if we were not here

And so let us celebrate womanhood today and everyday.

Happy International Women’s Day!
