A sweet sister sent this to me today.  I felt compelled to share it here.  Enjoy!


BEAUTIFUL CHRISTIAN SISTER
by Maya Angelou


‘A woman’s heart should be so hidden in Christ

that a man should have to seek Him first to find her.’


When I say… ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not shouting ‘I’m clean livin,’

I’m whispering ‘I was lost, Now I’m found and forgiven.’


When I say… ‘I am a Christian’ I don’t speak of this with pride.

I’m confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.


When I say… ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not trying to be strong.

I’m professing that I’m weak and need His strength to carry on.


When I say.. ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not bragging of success.

I’m admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.


When I say… ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not claiming to be perfect,

My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.


When I say… ‘I am a Christian’ I still feel the sting of pain…

I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.


When I say… ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not holier than thou,

I’m just a simple sinner Who received God’s good grace, somehow!



Pretty is as Pretty does… but beautiful is just plain beautiful!
