A Strong Woman

A strong woman is one who is able to smile this morning like she wasn’t crying last night.

It’s God's grace, mercy and favor that can make you smile even in the midst of a storm.
That only happens when you surrender yourself to him above, that he gives you the inner strength to press on. Not human strength. You cannot make it alone.

This has nothing to do with being a strong woman. Smiling when you are broken inside. A strong woman is true to herself.

Being strong has nothing to do with crying in solitude and smiling the next day as though there were never any tears the night before. Tears are a way to cleanse one's heart of hurt that is feels! That is truly where strength lies in the person that is authentic to themselves and others!  And then keep growing, learning, forgiving, loving etc.!
