“Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.”
Many women have done well, but we will surpass them all. They have covered the ground for us. They have fought for us. So we could surpass them. And we will do the same for the next generations. Our ceilings will be their platform to rise from. You are leaving a legacy. You are leaving a trail of love. You are leaving a sweet scent behind everywhere you go.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

Beauty rooted in the fear of God isn’t passing, you face will glow more gorgeous than ever before. You will grace old beautiful like no other.

I honor you for all that you have done in your life. For all the sacrifices you have brought. For all the prayers you have prayed. For all the kind words you have spoken. For all the dreams you have chased. For all the unsettling times you have pushed through. For all the tears you have cried out. Thank for being you and living your life. You will be praised beyond in Heaven by the sacrifices you brought on earth. And you will be blessed on this earth beyond for all the things you do, not in ways you expect them to come from, but keep your hands open, for God is good all the time.
You are more amazing than you know, girl,
Lots of love,
