I felt the need to pass on the following scriptures to you...(I will never know if you don't read it all,
but I hope you do!)
Proverbs 31:10-31 (Living Bible Version)...so you can understand clearly.. =)
10. If you can find a truly good wife, she is worth more than precious gems! 11. Her husband can trust her, and she will richly satisfy his needs. 12. She will not hinder him, but will help him all her life. 13. She finds wool and flax and busily spins it. 14. She buys imported foods, brought by ship from distant ports. 15. She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household and plans the day's work for her servant girls. 16. She goes out to inspect a field, and buys it; with her own hands she plants a vineyard. 17. She is energetic, a hard worker, 18. and watches for bargains. She works far into the night!
19.20. She sews for the poor, and generously gives to the needy. 21. She has no fear of winter for her household, for she has made warm clothes for all of them. 23. She also upholsters with finest tapestry; her own clothing is beautifully made - a purple gown of pure linen. 23. Her husband is well known, for he sits in the council chamber with the other civic leaders. 24. She makes belted linen garments to sell to the merchants. 25. She is a woman of strength and dignity, and has no fear of old age. 26. When she speaks, her words are wise, and kindness is the rule for everything she says. 27. She watches carefully all that goes on throughout her household, and is never lazy. 28. Her children stand and bless her; so does her husband. He praises her with these words: 29. "there are many fine women in the world, but you are the best of them all!" 30. Charm can be deceptive and beauty doesn't last, but a woman who fears and reverences God shall be greatly praised. 31. Praise her for the many fine things she does. These good deeds of hers shall bring her honor and recognition from even the leaders of the nations.
We may not all be wives...yet we could had been at one time, but above it all we are all women and have played a mothering role somewhere in your life and / or someone else's life!
With this said...I felt these words were extremely powerful to me! We may not possess all of these ideals above, but we are always striving to do our best and WILL ALWAYS be a work in
On another note, here are a few pics from the weekend for Mothers Day Celebration...
Happy Mother's Day!!
