Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28 which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.” Throughout the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as “Women’s History Week.” In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month.”
Celebrate the women in your life or better yet…women celebrate for yourself! Perfect time to repost this poem….
Recognize, Inspired by:
Genesis Chapter 29:17 Leah had weak eyes, but Rachel had a lovely figure and was beautiful.
A Poem for Leah
Do you not know? Have you not heard?
God is the final word.
And his lasting decree spoken over me
A woman of radiance, love and beauty
Established by the power released from His right hand
Unlocked potential to achieve more than most can
For my reach is far greater than many have seen
Secure in myself with high self-esteem
My worth holds more value than rubies or gems
Talented and confident, liberated from within
Community is important, I encourage those in need
To live a better life and my advice I pray they heed
Live up to your potential and never settle for less than best
Show up for every challenge and deliver nothing less
Offer all you have to give and your dreams will be fulfilled
Build your life on God’s foundation and your future will be sealed
Accept the blessing of His promise and make an oath to live His way
Grasp the beauty in each moment and always seize the day!
