Kitchen Catechism: Prayers


by Lois Donahue

At that moment in time when I became me
God breathed into my body a soul.
With purpose and love was my destiny set
She is WOMAN — let that be her role.

No role to be played on a limited stage
Nor rewritten to mimic a man
But fashioned in fiber to deal with God’s world
As only a woman can.

So let me think as a woman — feel as a woman
Love as a woman and seek
With man the crossed pathways to Heaven
Leaving footprints distinctly unique.
