This past Saturday at church, we had a women's get together and bible study called "Coffee with Vicky".
The scripture was from 1 Peter 3:3-4
3 Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. 4 Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.
Ladies, let us encourage one another to be that woman worthy in God's sight, carrying the beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit. Know our real worth, lift each other up and have a caring heart for one another.
Practicing FORGIVENESS, SINCERITY, and TAKING CARE OF OUR BODIES are just some of the things we can do to be of a gentle and quiet spirit. What other things can you add to that?
I stumbled onto this and just have to share! A poem by Mary Costanza
A Woman's Worth
A woman's beauty is not only in the glow of her skin
But the depth of her eyes and the warmth of her heart
A woman's strength is not only in the bow of her back
But the magnitude of her tears and the softness of her words
A woman's wisdom is not only in the value of her words
But the knowledge of when to hold them and the journey
she takes to learn them
A woman's courage is not only in her determination to fight
But her willingness to walk away and confidence to say "No"
A woman's grace is not only in the way she dances through her day
But in the love notes she leaves and the wonderful meals she prepares
A woman's love is not only in the kisses she gives
But in the sacrifices she makes and the moments given to you alone
A woman's worth is not only in the things she does
But who she truly is and who she helps you become
