mentor

so the Father says,
"the older women. . .
may encourage the younger women."

so as an older one,
i try to encourage those younger
to be all that the Father
has made them to be--
loving their husbands,
loving their children,
being sensible,
being pure,
being diligent,
being kind,
being respectful to their husbands.

as a younger one,
i seek older ones who are
reverent,
not malicious gossips,
not alcoholic,
teachers of good.

and for myself?
i want to have
all
these
lovely
qualities.
