Strength

This came from my friend Laura...


A strong woman works out everyday to keep her body in shape...
But a woman of strength builds relationships to keep her soul in shape

A strong woman isn't afraid of anything...
But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear.

A strong woman won't let anyone get the better of her...
But a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone.

A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future...
A woman of strength realizes life's mistakes can also be unexpected blessings, and capitalizes on them.

A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face...
But a woman of strength wears grace.

A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey...


But a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong.

Catherine, I don't know the author of this quote, or I would definitely post it. My friend Laura emailed it to me from a funeral program - the woman who passed away had lived an inspiring life of strength despite illness, and this was read during the service. That is all I know - feel free to pass it on as you like.
