She Stands......

In the kitchen, pouring her first cup of coffee….
At the door, waving her children off to school….
At the ball field, rubbing her hands together cheering her child in overtime….
In the hospital, as the doctor gives her the news of her loved one….
In church, for the couple kneeling at the altar for restoration….

She Stands......
In the gap for those she doesn’t know, but yet sees their struggles….
For her sister’s health issues…..
For her childhood friend as he lays his mom to rest…..
For every trial and valley her children walk through…..

She Stands………
For her parents when their faith seems dim……
For her brother and his family’s trials……
For those who are lost…….
For those who have hurt her……
For those who have blessed her….

She Stands……..
In the mirror, taking in every wrinkle that creases her face…..
In the memories of her own youth…….
In the joy of who she was and who she is today……
For every tear she has cried….
For every smile she has given…..

She Stands......
In His Grace……
His unfailing love……
His mercies that are new everyday…….
In His forgiveness.....
His joy.....
His peace.....

As a woman, a mom, a sister, a daughter and friend………
A woman of God enduring a life of trials, joy,struggles,peace,hardships and love…….

She Stands......

Isaiah 40:31
"but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
