Women, Kudos to great women.
Bible Gateway, Judges 16
New International Version (NIV)
Samson and Delilah
16 One day Samson went to Gaza, where he saw a prostitute. He went in to spend the night with her. 2 The people of Gaza were told, “Samson is here!” So they surrounded the place and lay in wait for him all night at the city gate. They made no move during the night, saying, “At dawn we’ll kill him.”
3 But Samson lay there only until the middle of the night. Then he got up and took hold of the doors of the city gate, together with the two posts, and tore them loose, bar and all. He lifted them to his shoulders and carried them to the top of the hill that faces Hebron.
4 Some time later, he fell in love with a woman in the Valley of Sorek whose name was Delilah. 5 The rulers of the Philistines went to her and said, “See if you can lure him into showing you the secret of his great strength and how we can overpower him so we may tie him up and subdue him. Each one of us will give you eleven hundred shekels[a] of silver.”
6 So Delilah said to Samson, “Tell me the secret of your great strength and how you can be tied up and subdued.”
The Portrait of Dorian Gray
The dictionary provides the following definition: disguise (dɪsˈɡaɪz) —vb: 1. to modify the appearance or manner in order to conceal the identity of (oneself, someone, or something)
Today I must comment on what I see
A barrage of women with presentations that are hard to believe
Behind quiet smiles and the appearance of extreme submission
Are women who want to dominate, rule, harm, and are parasitic in vision
Trained to destroy everyone in their path
So programmed that they even calculate their smiles and laughs
Sitting across the table from you with hardly anything to say
Because if they talk, their thoughts would give them right away
A product of a confused generation that wants it all for themselves
Believing that stealing from others is the best way to gather wealth
If you don't believe me, did we not watch in surprise
Gary Coleman's wife run to pull the plug in hopes of winning a prize
Perhaps these women always existed but not in such abundance
Now we have a generation of foolish women in record numbers
Grinding, prostituting, and setting a house asunder
Of any man who chooses her insincere disguise
Caught between her beauty and pleasure between thighs
Never realizing she is programed for his destruction and his demise
Welcome to the lures of the unholy woman
Cruel intent hidden behind the mask, like the Picture of Dorian Gray
But the value of a virtuous woman is beyond compare
Her genuine gentle ways of affection and care
Help you to face any day a victorious man
Supported by a loving cheerleader willing to hold your hand
As you walk through life and experience the challenges it brings
Faithful, loyal, and great comfort is the chorus she gently sings
A melody that designates in your heart
Loving you truly from the start
Your best friend
Your lover too
Who always prays the best for you
In her arms you find a loving peace with joy devine
She does good works when no one is looking
Gives to you without games because she's smitten
The experience you have with her will last beyond your lust
She's your wife, the mother of your children, a good soul you can trust
So kudus to all my amazing women that wear no mask, no pretending
Who can't sleep until they know you are alright and okay
Faithful, Loving, Affectionate, Genuine, and Loyal are their traits
You will never see them inappropriately dressed, bearing all for the world
For their value of their being is not just their hips, thighs, makeup, and hair
Wearing a smile of joy of happiness with themselves you see
With a big heart for those who desire and seek to make themselves a part of their world
There is nothing better than being a loving, valuable, complete woman in this world
To all my great women of good moral character, good heart, noble deed, with good intent; be encouraged and joyful for you are valued and appreciated. Be blessed in all that you do for your beauty is a spirit that blesses all that is encountered.
Quote by an unknown author:
A good woman is proud. She respects herself and others. She is aware of who she is. She neither seeks definition from the person she is with, nor does she expect them to read her mind. She is quite capable of articulating her needs.
A good woman is hopeful. She is strong enough to make all her dreams come true. She knows love, therefore she gives love. She recognizes that her love has great value and must be reciprocated. If her love is taken for granted, it soon disappears.

The wisdom of our mothers and older women can provide so much guidance in our lives if we seek the knowledge. While advice may fall to the wayside when given, years later we realize the value.
Sam (Married At First Sight) is an excellent model for women that take charge when dating. Watching her grow, love, take responsibility reaching awareness of self-sabotaging behavior was amazing.
