  1. For the women

    This is suppose to be for women, but I think it fits for men as well.



    By Maya Angelou

    'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
    that a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean livin''
    I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
    I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
    I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
    I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
    My flaws are far too visible but, God believes I am worth it.

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain..
    I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
    I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

    Pretty is as Pretty does... but beautiful is just plain beautiful!
