Reflection: Woman

Here’s a reflection on the creation of woman from RevGalBlogPals’s A Place for Prayer blog.

You Are Good

The universe yet incomplete
on the sixth day God created her


and God said to her
I shall give you

A heart full of compassion
a spirit free to fly with the birds
a vessel to carry life into the world

Wisdom to know great truths
courage to rise out of oppression

Strength to move mountains
gentleness to kiss the earth

Passion to set the world on fire
vision to respect the earth that bore you

A playful nature to dance with the children
laughter to fill the valleys
tears to wash the pain away

Hands for laboring and loving
intuition to know the unknown
desire to be that which you were created to be

and God said to her


I have created you in my image and likeness and

You are good
