    Proverbs 31 Woman


    10 A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.

    11 Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.

    12 She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.

    13 She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.

    14 She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.

    15 She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls.

    16 She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.

    17 She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.

    18 She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night.

    19 In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers.

    20 She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.

    21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet.

    22 She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple.

    23 Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.

    24 She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes.

    25 She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.

    26 She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

    27 She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.

    28 Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:

    29 "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all."

    30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

    31 Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

    That's me, to God's glory!


    AMEN! I'm glad you followed through and searched the scriptures! Yes, I can now say I identify with this woman, though, I've been tried in the fire, but as the bible says, beauty for ashes!

    Being that you would need to believe in God in order to appreciate this thread, I'm surprised you visited, but a seed is planted, so do come again!

    Au contraire mon cheri,

    one does not have to believe in the Christian ideology to appreciate or respect some things about it, or some of the people who adhere to it.

    Salaam Alaikum :toast::) :)
