Editor's Note: A poem for my Sisters, "Sister to Sister"

Dear Sister,

I love you.

You are strong like morning coffee,

Resilient like rubber bands.

Beautifully and wonderfully made,

Like the ocean, like the beach sand.


When I look at you, all that I can do is smile.

Though sometimes you are frowning,

Life can never keep you down.


"Why?" Because you Persevere.

As Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

“8We are hard-pressed on every side,  we are not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”

I admire you.


You carry your strength with honor.

You walk with such dignity.

You are a warrior, a lioness,

Truly, when you put your mind to it, you can be anything you want to be.


When you’re not feeling up to it,

Just know that it’s okay.

Get help, phone a friend,

It’s not what we’re used to, but

Where there’s a will, there is a way.


I’m rooting for you, my sister,

I always want you to win.

And if you fall, just know

I am here to encourage you,

 with prayer and faith,  we will stand together, 

and with God's strength, you will get back up again.


Happy Black History Month and Be Encouraged,

We are stronger together,



  1. Amen speak truth and light into everyone. Heal the broken hearted and the poor in spirit. Hallelujah!
