Women’s History Month

Women’s  History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress  passed Pub. L. 97-28 which authorized and requested the President to proclaim  the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.”  Throughout  the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a  week in March as “Women’s History Week.”  In 1987 after being  petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L.  100-9 which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History  Month.”

Celebrate the women in your life or better yet…women celebrate for yourself!   Perfect time to repost this poem….

Genesis Chapter 29:17 Leah had weak eyes, but Rachel had a lovely figure and was beautiful.

A Poem for Leah

Recognize

Do you not know? Have you not heard?

God is the final word.

And his lasting decree spoken over me

A woman of radiance, love and beauty

Established by the power released from His right hand

Unlocked potential to achieve more than most can

For my reach is far greater than many have seen

Secure in myself with high self-esteem

My worth holds more value than rubies or gems

Talented and confident, liberated from within

Community is important, I encourage those in need

To live a better life and my advice I pray they heed

Live up to your potential and never settle for less than best

Show up for every challenge and deliver nothing less

Offer all you have to give and your dreams will be fulfilled

Build your life on God’s foundation and your future will be sealed

Accept the blessing of His promise and make an oath to live His way

Grasp the beauty in each moment and always seize the day!
