Today is International Women’s Day. I learned that while this is not a big deal in the U.S. at this time, it is a huge deal elsewhere in the world. People bake cakes for women and celebrate them. Perhaps like our Mother’s Day, without the overpriced brunch and flowers.
This is a fractious time. For many, it hardly seems celebratory. But stopping to recognize that women are made imago dei is important, perhaps supremely so, in times such as these.
World Relief created an unbelievably moving piece, a modern-day look at Proverbs 31. No, it’s not all flowers, pink and pastel (bleech). It’s a real look at real women in the real world, today. It’s about you. It’s about me.
Few things make me cry. This did. It’s such a beautiful piece of work, so moving, and so needed today. Share it with the women in your life. It will impact them so. I wish my grandmother could see it; she is physically with us but not much more than that.
I offer to this to my dear sisters, some of whom I know and some, I do not.
Remember, you are worth far more than rubies.
Please take a look. I’m so thankful for and proud of my gifted and hardworking colleagues whose talents so far exceed mine. I am blessed.
