About being strong

Looking through a stack of papers, I came across this poem I received from one of the docs I work for... couldn't help but share it.

A Woman of Strength

A strong woman works out every day
to keep her body in shape...
But a woman of strength kneels in prayer
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 her fear.

A strong woman won't let anyone get the best 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 God's blessings and capitalizes on them.

A strong woman walks sure-footedly...
But a woman of strength knows God will
catch her when she falls.

A strong woman wears the 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.
