Good Day, Beautiful People!
8th March every year is time to celebrate International Women’s Day worldwide! The essence of the commemoration of occasion ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation, and love towards girls and women to a celebration for women’s economic, political, and social achievements.
Well, the political and human rights subject matter designated by the United Nations. It directs and conducts active, healthy, powerful, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women across the globe are accessed and investigated in a hopeful manner. Some folks celebrate the day by wearing purple ribbons.
So thankful to all the beautiful, amazing, strong and resilient women in my life. My late grandma, my mom, all the women in my family and extended family, my friends and my mentors. By looking at their lives, give me something to look up to and to build more and want more out of my life. I am grateful that I am living in a country that believe in women’s rights, equality and women’s freedom. Like Oprah said “Here’s to more achievements, equality and realization of our dreams.”
At the same time, I am also praying and believing for the girls and women who are being oppressed in certain countries in the world will enjoy the freedom, human rights and equality in the near future. Basically, those countries that oppressed women and children are not flourishing and unstable.
Truly, woman is created to be the man’s helper, partner in life and his equal. Clearly, it is written in the bible, woman is made from his rib of his equal, not from his head to control him, not from his feet to feel inferior to him.
“God put the Man into a deep sleep. As he slept he removed one of his ribs and replaced it with flesh. God then used the rib that he had taken from the Man to make Woman and presented her to the Man.” Gen2:22
Well, this is an excellent model we can be inspired to be. Honestly speaking, most of us will consider this is a tall order to follow. I am pretty certain I will not be doing all that especially the knitting, sewing and making my own clothes. Of course, there are women that are given such talents to sew and knit. Some are given green thumbs to grow plants and flowers in their gardens. We may not have all these talents but all of us are given something unique that we are good at. So stop comparing your talents and your life with others. Be you and that is enough. Celebrate the beautiful, authentic and exclusive you. Collectively, we cheer and applaud all our achievements.
A good woman is hard to find,
and worth far more than diamonds.
Her husband trusts her without reserve,
and never has reason to regret it.
Never spiteful, she treats him generously
all her life long.
She shops around for the best yarns and cottons,
and enjoys knitting and sewing.
She’s like a trading ship that sails to faraway places
and brings back exotic surprises.
She’s up before dawn, preparing breakfast
for her family and organizing her day.
She looks over a field and buys it,
then, with money she’s put aside, plants a garden.
First thing in the morning, she dresses for work,
rolls up her sleeves, eager to get started.
She senses the worth of her work,
is in no hurry to call it quits for the day.
She’s skilled in the crafts of home and hearth,
diligent in homemaking.
She’s quick to assist anyone in need,
reaches out to help the poor.
She doesn’t worry about her family when it snows;
their winter clothes are all mended and ready to wear.
She makes her own clothing,
and dresses in colourful linens and silks.
Her husband is greatly respected
when he deliberates with the city fathers.
She designs gowns and sells them,
brings the sweaters she knits to the dress shops.
Her clothes are well-made and elegant,
and she always faces tomorrow with a smile.
When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say,
and she always says it kindly.
She keeps an eye on everyone in her household,
and keeps them all busy and productive.
Her children respect and bless her;
her husband joins in with words of praise:
“Many women have done wonderful things,
but you’ve outclassed them all!”
Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades.
The woman to be admired and praised
is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God.
Give her everything she deserves!
Festoon her life with praises! -Proverb 31:10-31
