The gentle way of a woman
Is one of God’s wondrous creations.
Kind in words, she brings joy to others.
Calm in voice, she is a peacemaker.
Resolved in her faith,
She raises up the young,
Giving encouragement and praise,
Showing the way to God.
Thoughtful and loving,
She focuses on others needs,
Remembering also to spend time with God,
Refreshing herself.
She builds relationships
With wisdom and forgiveness.
Sacrifices she makes for her significant other
Flow from Love.
A fruitful woman,
She remains a branch
Proceeding from the Vine,
Abiding in Christ, waiting for His lead.
Her love for God is hewn in stone,
She sparkles as a jewel
In God’s loving eyes.
She shares the Gospel with the world,
Telling of the strength and salvation
To be found in Him.
She is acquainted with God’s work
For she knows God intimately;
She knows His Heart,
She is God’s beautiful jewel.
