Here's a bouquet of orchids for you!!

Everyone of us had a mother 
and entered this life through a womb! 
Let's honor all mothers
and thank them for their part in giving us life.
Feel free to make yourself 
a copy of the poem on pretty paper
and use it as a bookmark to remind you
how much you are loved by our Heavenly Father!


You’re a woman of worth
Loved perfectly by the Lord!
Be a woman of wisdom,
Your life fully based on His Word,
Be a woman of wealth,
As you store up eternal treasure!
Be a woman of warmth
Giving and loving
In bountiful measure.
In valleys, as a woman of weeping
Discover His wellspring of joy;
With praises and singing and prayer
The works of the devil destroy.
Be a woman of wonder;
How God is working
In and through you!
Let your wisdom and wealth ,
Bring glory to Him in all that you do.
Be a woman of worship,
He alone is worthy of praise!
In everything giving thanks always
Your voice of true freedom raise.
Let your sweet, winning smile,
Your warm, welcome heart
Show others what life’s all about!
Don’t be a woman of worries,
Or fears, frustrations and doubt.
It is through Christ
You CAN do all things,
His strength is yours
Each new day on this earth!
Let no one persuade you
To think otherwise!
You are a woman of worth!

I needed to read this today. What beautiful words. I always like to think "I am a daughter of the King." I am going to copy this now and make a bookmark. Thanks for the idea.
