Strength of a Man

The Strength of a  Man,

 

The strength of a man isn't seen in the width of his shoulders.
It's seen in the width of his arms that encircle and protect you.

 

The strength of a man isn't in the deep tone of his voice.
It is in the gentle words he whispers.

 

The strength of a man isn't in the words he speaks.
It's in how he keeps his word.

 

The strength of a man isn't how many buddies he has.
It's how good a buddy he is with his or "your" children.

 

The strength of a man isn't in how respected he is at work.
It's in how he is respected at home.

 

The strength of a man isn't in how hard he hits.
It's in how tender he touches.

 

The strength of a man isn't in the hair on his chest.
It's in the heart . . . that lies within his chest.

 

The strength of a man isn't in how many women he's loved.
It's in whether he can be true to the ONE woman he's trying to love.

 

The strength of a man isn't in the weight he can lift.
It's in the burdens he can carry.

 

The strength of a man isn't in how much food he eats from your table.
It's in the effort he puts forth when you are unable.

 

The strength of a man isn't in how he talks about love.
It's in the understanding that there is more to love
. . . than talking about love.

 

A strong man puts God first,
. . . family second
. . . and his work third.
