"She" - International Women's Day 2017

In honor of all my sisters of faith throughout the world on International Women's Day, I want to share my poem, "She." To all of you amazing, strong, courageous women who love and serve the Lord.


She moves with passion and such joy
Sowing gladness and love, while remaining coy

Her heart flows with giving and is full of lust
She knows no limits; love is a must

Her spirit longs to run and be free
She feels with intensity, just to be

She humbly serves others with love and grace
She preaches the Gospel and her sweet Jesus' case

She works to change the imperfect present world
Hoping to bind perfection to the future all furled

Her kindness and gentleness is her soft touch
She gives and loves always, much too much

Her heart can be worn on the edge of her sleeve
Once she gives her love, it will never leave

She throws and casts fate all away
Living and challenging her life day by day

She seizes each moment as it might be her last
As she knows time is speeding by way too fast

She knows that life is led by God's calling
So she is brave and strong; she never fears falling

Her God rules her heart; He's her strength and her might
This is what gives her the courage to fight

She interacts and lives her life feeling deeply
Her inner intuitive voice leads her completely

Her ethereal light shines on others' ways
Her eyes and her smile glow as bright sunny rays

Her empathic presence is like a warm summer day
Her inner child delights to laugh and to play

Can this nymph of light, this mysterious She,
possibly ever hope to be me?

This is my prayer and my wish to see
I trust God; He can help make me to be
