A woman of strength- Fancy Friday (or not so fancy)

I had a very touching and tender conversation the other day with a close friend, who's been there for me through a lot...and we've known each other for 8 years and change.  After our conversation (which always picks up where we last left off...the best kind), she sent me this email.  You may have seen it, but I think it is poignant and pertinent in my life as well as the lives of women in general.  I hope and strive to be a woman of strength.  Thank you Jenn.

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 her 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…
