“To me, a lady is not frilly, flouncy, flippant, frivolous and fluff-brained, but she is gentle. She is gracious. She is godly and she is giving… You and I, if we are women, have the gift of femininity. Very often it is obscured, just as the image of God is obscured in all of us… The more womanly we are, the more manly men will be, and the more God is glorified. As I say to you women, ‘Be women. Be only women. Be real women in obedience to God.'” – Elisabeth Elliot
This is what I strive to be.
One thought on ““To me, a lady …”
Really good quote. I think Elisabeth Elliot succeeds in being all woman, don’t you?
