What I'd Pay To Be The Proverbs 31 Woman, Instead Of The Proverbs 7 Woman (Beauty)


The beauty you have
Is the kind of beauty
Girls like me long so deeply to have

The beauty you have
Is your hunger for God
A girl like me always wanted to have it

The beauty you have
Is the kind that lasts forever-
-Oh, I would do anything to have it!

The beauty you have,
God smiles on you so brightly
And I miss His smile

Never let go
Of that beauty you have!
(It surpasses that of so many.)

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
