Together We Are ONE
Virtuous black woman; you are God’s earnest and most sincere creation, when he formed you from my rib, he spared no effort, paused no thought and compromised no quality in bringing you to life; He sanctioned quietude upon the face of the Earth for this purpose,, as the clouds were parted and the Seas were ordered to be still;
Every animal was kept in their place as no bird was permitted to fly, no leviathans granted movement within the oceans; for this was a sacred time as the second human being on the planed was being created to walk alongside the first;
Using Wisdom as His currency, Virtue was purchased for your ingredients from His corner store of the universe; Knowledge was extracted from His closet of the galaxy to be infinitely endowed unto you; Understanding came from His own heart for your role as the one who loves unconditionally, quells every argument and brings peace through a smile to everyone in the family;
Although I strive daily for our cause and warrior myself for our future, there will always be God’s eye of singularity for you and you alone; the wonders inherent in you from the beginning of time arise and manifest themselves for every age;
There is nothing presently more powerful for you to overcome than your foremothers had to contend with yesterday using the same inherent strength God embedded within you today; you only need to continue exploring within the context, history, spirituality and purpose of who and whose you are to find your solutions, with God as your guide, JESUS as your captain and my loyalty to your cause, your team is set in place;
Black woman, I may have been created first but together, we are one; black woman, I may have the superior physical strength but, I have witnessed your prayers moving mountains; black woman, I may have been the one lynched on trees of sorrow yet, I have seen your tears of bloodshed on my behalf;
Black woman, black woman, black woman; I may have been created first but; Together, WE ARE ONE
Rusel Blake author of Proverbs 31: The Virtuous Black Woman.
