“Happy Woman’s Day!”
Today is a very special day! In 1913 March 8 was declared as an International Women’s day (IWD). Women in over 100 countries throughout the world are being celebrated today.In some nations, it is an official holiday. The purpose of this special day is defined as a day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and a call to action for issues concerning women. One of the ideas behind this day was to celebrate woman’s day every year in every nation in such a way to apply political pressure for expanded women’s rights. The first National Woman’s Day took place on February 23, 1909 in the United States. Today women are being honored and participating in various events to celebrate.
Genesis 2:16 says, “And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone: I will make him a helper comparable to him.” A helper is one who helps. To help is to give or provide what is necessary to accomplish a task or satisfy a need. It also means to contribute strength, render assistance, to save, aid or to rescue. It’s wonderful to know that God created women with the word help in mind. Women have been called by God to be great helpers. Think about all of the women who God have placed in your life to help you on your way. Take time to say thank you!
I want to take this day to celebrate women all over the world. Thank you for everything that you do and have done to make the world a better place. Thank you to the women who have made such a major impact on the world that they became famous, and thank you to the women who have made major impact, but no one will ever know your name. Thank you to all of the good moms and grandmothers who have raised their biological children and children from another mother. Thank you for all of the lessons that you have taught and the sacrifices that you have made. Thank you!
Let’s take time to thank the women in our lives who have been such a blessing in one way or another. Husbands take time to thank your wives for the fabulous help that they provide to you and your family. Do something special for the special women in your life. Happy Woman’s Day!
Until next week . . . .
