The Proverbs 31 Woman
Our pastor is the godliest person I know... and his wife is the perfect match for him.
A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
She is so talented. So creative. So selfless. So hospitable. So kind. So patient. So funny. So thoughtful.
She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.
She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
"Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all."
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Give her the reward she has earned,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
She is someone I want to model myself after. I've learned so much from her lead and from the way she lives her life. She is the perfect Proverbs 31 woman.
And today is her 60th birthday!
