International Women’s Day

Official Proclamation:

I, Kelly, do hereby proclaim, endorse, and ratify my womanhood. I am blessed and honored to be a woman. It is a gift from God. The opportunities and blessings afforded me as a woman are countless. Motherhood, sisterhood and even when in a career of mostly male counterparts, I was afforded opportunity to flourish. I have no complaints. If I did, it would be this: that I missed embracing my womanhood with gratefulness and honor and used this blessing to bless my people more by giving of the overflow of my heart the goodness that this world is aching for–the sacrifice, toil and care that is offered by the nurturing hands of a woman. Too often I spent time in rebellion, demanding more, fighting for my rights, and all the while missing the very gift of who I was and why I am.

Ladies, lay down your lives. Be a blessing in your weakness and your strengths. Let your light shine before men. Love one another with an unselfish love. And be grateful today and always for the blessing right where you are. It is the best of everything to be a woman. Acknowledge your gratitude.

I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are your works; and that my soul knows right well.  Psalm 139:14 NIV
