Today, in the middle of my busyness, my sister in Christ, Sue Nash gave me a surprise. She wrote a poem based on my post “Woman of Faith” series. It is been honor for me and this evening I would like to share this spiritual and inspirational poem to all of my lovely reader. My sister Sue, Thank you very much for your kindness. Love you so much.
One woman obeyed
To bear a child in her mistress’ place.
Sarah dared to reconsider
For the son of promise, it wasn’t too late.
One woman refused
To come before the king as he wished.
Esther dared to approach
For such a time as this.
One woman bragged
To the childless wife and teased.
Hannah dared to believe
For a son to dedicate as priest.
One woman decided
To stay behind with those she knew.
Ruth dared to choose
For Naomi’s God to be hers, too.
One woman rejoiced;
To have a child at her age was a thrill.
Her cousin Mary dared to receive,
“May your word to me be fulfilled.”
One woman complained
To serve their Guest all alone.
Her sister Mary dared to prioritize
For the one thing that mattered most.
One woman grieved
To see her Son crucified.
Mary Magdalene dared to declare
For His disciples to come see that He’s alive.
