Maybe I’ll never understand why so many of us boys and men have such difficulty honoring, respecting and recognizing the women in our world and their phenomenal accomplishments throughout the course of history.
When our dad died in 1957, our mom raised six of us all by herself. Why she didn’t strangle us rug rats remains a mystery.
When I first gave my heart to Jesus, the church we attended in Presque Isle, Maine was co-pastored by two wonderful women of God.
All during our Bible school years we were abundantly blessed by several powerfully anointed women of God, who faithfully and masterfully ministered the Word of God.
The Bible tells of the exploits and adventures of a plethora of kingdom women who accomplished much for God.
As we speak, there are a host of gifted speakers, teachers, evangelists, missionaries and pastors who are of the female persuasion.
Men: COME on OUTTA the Dark Ages!
History is replete with account after account of their bravery. Their fight. Their spunk. Their refusal to quit, lay down their mission and give in to the small mindedness and insults of the male figure who never realized Eve, the first woman, came from Adam’s side, not his feet.
To all the moms, daughters, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, great grandmothers and single women everywhere:
YOU are especially special.
YOU are needed.
YOU are gifted.
YOU are a treasured treasure to this earth.
Gifted greatly or simply simple … WOMAN … YOU light up our lives.
God bless each one of you women as we celebrate Women’s History Month this day and EVERY day of the year.
