The Beauty of a Woman


The Beauty of a Woman isn't measured by her size.
Tis measured by how wise.
The Beauty of a woman isn't measured by the color of her eyes.
Tis measured by giving sound advice.
The Beauty of a woman isn't measured by the length of her hair.
Tis measured by how many she can pull from despair.
The Beauty of a woman isn't based on skin color.
Tis measured by her giving a tenth to every dollar.
The Beauty of a woman isn't measured by her height.
Tis measured by her might.
The Beauty of a woman isn't measured by her weight.
Tis measured by her fate.
The Beauty of a woman isn't measured by her lips.
Tis measured by how softly she grips.
The Beauty of a woman isn't measure by the size of her ears.
Tis measured by the size of her heart, hearing the voice of God.
The Beauty of a woman isn't measured by outward Beauty.
Tis measured by her inner-Beauty.
The Beauty of a woman is a bright Light House in darkness.
The Beauty of a woman is God at work.


1 Peter 3: 4 Your Beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. 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.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
