More Thoughts For Women

I love finding little thoughts that confirm how valued women are and how priceless our worth is. Here are a few I came across. I hope they brighten your day!

"Be very careful if you make a woman
cry, because God counts her tears. The woman
came out of a man's rib. Not from his feet to be
walked on. Not from his head to be superior, but
from the side to be equal. Under the arm to be
protected, and next to the heart to be loved."
From the Hebrew Talmud

"If a woman can only succeed by emulating men, I think it is a great loss and not a success. The aim is not only for a woman to succeed, but to keep her womanhood and let her womanhood influence society." - Suzanne Brogger

“A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.” - Diane Mariechild

“The best protection any woman can have… is courage.” - Elizabeth Cady Stanton

“Women are the real architects of society.” - Harriet Beecher Stowe

“I am convinced that the influence of an army of godly women will be incalculable in our homes, our churches, and our culture. Will you be one of those women?” - Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Our spirits long for us to remember the truth about who we are, because the way we see ourselves, our sense of identity, affects everything we do. It affects the way we behave, the way we respond to uncertainty, the way we see others, the way we feel about ourselves, and the way we make choices. It affects the very way we live our lives. So, today, I invite you to ponder in a new way not just who you are but who you have always been.  - Sheri Dew
