What makes a Woman Special?

She is clothed in strength and dignity 
and she laughs without fear of the future.

Proverbs 31:25


She is more precious than jewels,
 and nothing you desire can compare with her.

Proverbs 3:15


An excellent wife is the crown of her husband,
 but she who brings shame is like rottenness in his bones.

Proverbs 12:4


The heart of her husband trusts in her, 
and he will have no lack of gain.

Proverbs 31:11


A special woman is considerate, dignified and well mannered.  She possesses poise and grace.  She brings out the gentleman in every man she meets at all times and commands their respect.  Her finest attributes are her trustworthiness, her sincere heart and her empathy towards others.   She is a refined woman with a sweet serenity about her.  She neither criticises nor does she gossip about others.  She is known for her integrity and honesty.  A special woman possesses a quality that projects a high sense of self-worth and she always walks with an air of confidence.  She is authentic and remains true to herself.  She retains her femininity.

The beauty of a special woman is not only her features or her clothes but it is her graceful behaviour; her self-control and strength.  She is never loud and neither is her laughter shrill, she is refined and serene.  She possesses a cheerful spirit because she is in touch with her inner-child. She always maintains a certain amount of mystique about her that exudes an attractive sensuality. She has a sense of style and class. 

A special woman has a warm, kind and beautiful heart. She has a beautiful spirit that radiates warmth, joy and love everywhere she goes. 
A special woman always holds herself and others in high esteem.  Her sincere words and thoughtfulness always reflects her strong values. She is courageous and faces adversity with wisdom and calmness. Her good sense of humour and intelligence is admired by others.

Lastly, a special woman is always fondly remembered for her strong values, grace, compassion, forgiveness, intuition and creativity.

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman

Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.
