Women of Wisdom

Dear Kindred Spirits in Christ,

Many of us are now in our golden years, or fast approaching them. We've survived unbelievably painful experiences and thrived in other, more joyful ones. We've hoped and toiled and scraped by with both tears and laughter - building our lives and sometimes watching them crumble. Our faces show age, and our memories are clouded with a blur of faces and times gone by. Yet here we are, in this particular place, in this God given moment that is ours alone.

Proverbs 31:10 and 25 state: Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies...Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

Oh, how we strive to be that woman of virtue! To look at ourselves in the mirror and see a smiling, contented soul, one who has gained victory through Christ over seemingly insurmountable odds. Others may not see it, but it's important that we do. And how does God view us, from His holy throne on high? His Holy Spirit is with us always, knowing our most intimate details, the longings and secret thoughts - and the times that we wanted to give up, but didn't. It was His will, His strength that kept us going when our flesh wanted to end it all.

There is so much more to our lives than we can comprehend now, and we must try to rejoice, in all circumstances. 1st Thessalonians 5:18 tells us this. In everything give thanks, for this is God's will in Christ Jesus concerning you.

We are given an important role in this life, as we age and learn from experience. Titus 2: 3-4 states that the aged women are to behave as becomes holiness, that they may teach the young women. They, too, will rise and fall, and rise again, searching for answers that only God can give them. But we are to set the example. Wisdom calls, and we find it in The Living Word, in our daily struggles and empowering moments. This is truly a profound journey that we live moment by moment, and many of us now realize what not to do. Let us continue then, together, as sisters and

kindred spirits, for whatever time remains.

Love Always,
