| The women of my life
by Cyneatha Millsaps
today I thank you for the many powerful women you have placed before me.
Women in scripture like Deborah and Jochebed.
Women in history like Maya Angelou and Mother Theresa.
Women in my community like Martha and Bonnie.
Women in my family, like Momma Mert and Granny.
I know these women and the lives they lead and have led,
help me to be the woman you have created me to be.
As I am made in your image, I am also made in theirs.
Thank you for providing me with an array of powerful, gifted and loving women. Amen.
