A Woman’s Sphere…


”They talk about a woman’s sphere as

though it had a limit;

There’s not a place in earth or heaven,

There’s not a task to mankind given,

There’s not a blessing or woe,

There’s not a whispered ”yes” or ”no,”

There’s not a life, or death, or birth,

That has a feather’s weight of worth

without a woman in it.”

                                     Kate Field, Poet. (1838-1896)

I love this poem and I thought, why not share it and affirm to those words that I’m proud to be a woman (and a man too if you’re reading this), I’m proud of the fact that I can effect a change in a world filled with corruption and darkness, a world where demons walk in broad daylight and evil is extol with relish. I’m proud that when I effect a change in my world (family) I’m translating and infusing life and love into people of all ages. I’m proud to be a woman who chose to love people irrespective of who they are!

Are you proud of who you are?

Thanks for reading my post:)

    Love this, and for reiterating the integrity that every woman (and man!) on this earth should be given freely.

    And thank you for introducing me to a beautiful poem. 🙂

    Beautiful poem!

    Agree with you… 🙂

    We must make room for each other and all recognize that we aren’t look a likes – but we are equally – so it is also between men and women – if we worked together we have both our sides of strengths and of weaknesses – but these are not identical – together we would be amazing – it called synergy… 🙂

  7. Beutiful poem, but maybe womans sphere refers to the places lacking men. And those definitely exist 🙂

  8. You expess you philosophy very clearly and well.

    Yes! I’m proud of who I am, and my accomplishments. It’s sad that some people are reluctant to say so for fear of what others may think.
    I’m confident.
    My actions and accomplishments speak for themselves.
    I try to live by the theme of that wonderful song, “The Greatest Love of All.”

    A pastor once said to me, “Your opinion of me is none of my business. I have to live my life to please myself, my God, and my wife.” I’ve never forgotten his advice!

    Thanks for posting this poem and for posing your question.

      Beautifully written and brimming with confidence! That’s a great way to live, minding what people think would always affect God’s plans for our lives if we’re not careful! Thanks for stopping by my site!
      Love and peace:)

    I’m not real disappointed in who I am. I am just glad I am not who I was and I hope I have not yet become who I want to be.
    My goal is to try to be better each day.

  18. Liesa Malik says:

    Love the spirit of this post! I’m descended from one of the Famous Five 🙂

  23. mcwoman says:

    Beautiful post. I think women are God’s perfection. Not only can we bring life into the world, our legacy is written in our children. We nurture them with love and caring and then propel them out into the world to change it in their own ways. How powerful is that!

  24. ‘Wonderful Thoughts. . . and thank you, for the inspirational comment, and recent visit to my post. I am still working on positioning things, as I am not quite sure where, and how things should be. In addition: Thanks for receiving the last comment on “Givers. . .”

    Yesterday, while posting the comment, there was a brief power surge, and when everything was restored, I inadvertently posted the comment before I could complete the editing. I am sure no want’s to see missed-spelled words or unedited comments on their post. (smile) . . . Please know that I give all genuine attention to others when posting comments, as I would my own.

    Now, as for the thought of “Givers,” remember, you initiated that wonderful thought for dialogue, which has splintered off into an arena of additional thoughts and ideas, which is good!

    Much LOVE and APPRECIATION to everyone in the discussion. . .

    Once again, thanks for the thoughts, the visit, and the inspiration!

      You’re welcome my dear friend, I had wanted to reply to the post but my friends were breathing down my neck, and once I chased them off my lawn, several other things took over. I realise you’re spiritually sound (didn’t know the adjective I could use to describe it). Aptly put, I enjoyed your comment immensely and thank you for the visit! I intend to visit your blog as time permits and I didn’t notice any mistake in your comment, I think deeply about the message in my comments rather than looking for loopholes.
      Much love to you dear friend! 🙂

  25. I’m mighty proud to know you, Seyi, and many thanks for setting such a good, much-needed example. The world’s a better place for having you in it! : )
