Boots on the stream...

‎”Every woman, whether rich or poor, married or single, has a circle of influence within which, according to her character, she is exerting a certain amount of power for good or harm. Every woman by her virtue or her vice, by her wisdom or her folly, by her dignity or her levity is adding something to our national elevation or degradation.” —John Angell James

    So much truth in this quote. I was immediately reminded of Paul’s letter to Titus (ch. 2) regarding women and the way we should live and specifically how we should train the younger generation to live.

    Oh, to be forever conscious of that fact. So many times we fall into reacting instead of living with intention, aware of the example we are setting, and the fact as a Christian woman we should always exhibit the character of Christ. May God write it on my heart so I won’t forget.
