She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies belts to the tradesmen.
Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future.
She opens her mouth in wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and bless her;
Her husband also, and he praises her, saying: “Many daughters have done nobly,
But you excel them all.”
Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Proverbs 31:24-30
King Lemeul had a wonderful mother who told him what to look for in a woman. Its almost unbelievable. She in productive, not idle. She has an optimism about the future, not fearing what is out of her control (the snow). When she speaks, people hear the wisdom of God spoken with kindness. She is focused on her children first and foremost and they know it and are blessed by her influence. And her husband benefits publicly and privately by her godliness. She should and is praised.
Are my sons looking for the right qualities? How did I get so lucky?
Lord, You have been so gracious to me. My wife exemplifies these qualities and I could not be happier. I know You love me, because You have gifted me in this life with such a woman. I bless and praise her.
