One day I saw a post that said, "Fix another Queens crown without telling the world it was crooked." I thought it spoke volumes because as a woman I honestly have experienced many ups and downs in female relationships.
While we are powerful together, we can also be vicious to one another. What is known as the "me too" movement has made a mark in history because women who were mistreated at the hands of men in power gathered together to speak as one voice and make a difference. They decided to fix one another's crown because all of their crowns were crooked!
I think when we realize all of our crowns are crooked and we, as daughters of our heavenly Father come together encouraging one another, speaking life and embracing our differences, we are unstoppable! However, I think the enemy has been having a field day because we fall prey to his many tactics of keeping us alienated, not dealing with offenses and deep wounds from childhood. The enemy loves to see us living in a way that is not authentic, thereby not reaching our God given potential. Oh I could go on and on about this, but I need to transition to the title of this posting, "My Sister."
I have three sisters but the one I am referring to today is my sister Ann. You see she knows how to fix another sister's crown without telling the world it was crooked. When she believes in you she is your number one advocate. She will do whatever she can, give whatever she has to help someone she loves. She hasn't had an easy life, and I have watched her walk through some challenges, some really deep waters, painful choices, and devastating circumstances. Recently, while on a visit to my home town Memphis, when I put my eyes on her, she had no idea of the joy and tears within me. She is a woman I greatly admire and respect. As a little girl she was the sister I used to follow around. I remember walking around the house with her picture, waiting for her to get out of school and come home. She was my advocate when I was picked on at school; she was the one I ran home to tell. She has walked with me through tough times as well, never judging me, never losing faith in what she believes I am called to do. She is a strong force in our family. She is a loving mother and grandmother. She has never given up no matter the challenge! I salute my sister Ann; I am so thankful for who she is and the woman she continues to become. She sure does know how to straighten up a crown!
Salute a woman today! Share your story. I am sure you know a woman who knows how to straighten up a crown without telling the world it was crooked.
