A Lady is Always Prepared

They say that a lady is ready for anything; never taken off her guard. Going riding in a convertable? She has a scarf ready. Even if she is a little unnerved, she doesn't let it show.

But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame. 1 Peter 3:14-16
