Today I Celebrate

Dedicated to all of God's precious women. There are many fine women in this world but you are the best of them all. Proverbs 31:29

I celebrate the Woman, the Woman of God.
The inner beauty inside, which is my very own.
Created by the loving hands of my Father
I am a reflection of all he is inside and out.

I celebrate Joy, the Joy within my Heart
Unspeakable and full of God’s amazing glory.
My spirit comes alive and my soul dances
There is fullness of Joy in his presence.

I celebrate Strength, the strength to overcome
To be shaken stretched, molded, and shaped.
To press on and to go forward in my journey
Because the Joy of the Lord is my strength.

I celebrate Hope, the hope that endures
That always believes nothing is impossible.
And there is nothing too hard for my God
Because with him all things are possible.

Today I celebrate, with all women of God
Women who rise from the ashes in victory.
Women full of power, dignity, and wisdom
Filled with God's mighty spirit, and promises.

Ideally, we all should strive to be a Proverbs 31 woman. I rejoice and celebrate that I too strive to be just that. Being a Proverbs 31 woman is the ultimate in womanhood!

From the Heart said...

You are not only a beautiful woman, but a woman of God who reaches out to touch others. You always have something that touches my heart.

I've been away almost two weeks (Wednesday) from blogging and I can't seem to get back to it. I'm catching up today on my blogging friends. All of you are so special to me and have given me a reason to not give up. I love my Lord so much and want to be closer to Him. I want my blog to reflect the trinity, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

You have been such an encouragement to all of us even in your times of need. May God richly bless you.
With all my love,

Debra said...

Beautiful, Lorie...and so are you.
Love, Debra

Jen said...

You are so encouraging! Really that poem just reminds me of you. I hope to see those qualities in myself, but it's hard. ((hugs))

Your blog always brings feelings of peace and quiet strength. You have what so many people wonder about and seek - the greatest treasure. I can just imagine you being hugged by Jesus as He reads your blog and smiles.

Thanks for including me.
