Possibilities

How can a little girl -

cornered and anxious
helpless, dependent,
frightened by death and by life -

become a Woman of Valor?

Hmm, nice poem. It's possible. Hope she works through the anxiety and and dependence first.

Hmmmm. I would say that one needn't be neccesarily strong, independent, or unafraid in order to qualify as a W.O.V.

These aren't qualities of the heart, afterall. Nor do they define a relationship with God...

Valour to me connotes those qualities of strength, courage, and self-reliance. What does it mean to you?

I suppose i knew the term "woman of valour" years before knowing how the word was defined by Webster. (Thanks for your definition. I had no idea). Thus, the women in my life-- about whom we sung on Friday nights-- defined the word for me.

A W.O.V. is a woman with a giving heart, a kind hand, soft words, and humility.
