What a nice surprise I received this morning when I checked my blog.
First of all let me say, I give God the glory for any good I might do. He has blessed me to travel to Zambia four times to do His work there. My heart is still so full of Zambia today that I can scarcely believe I have been there and back already.
I met Pamela through blogging and entering her Heavenly Treat Sunday Link Party. She seems to have the kind of attitude that I strive to have.
I have a lot of respect for a mom of six children, especially because she is home schooling them.
Having taught four year olds for twenty years gives me a deep appreciation for anyone who loves children and wants to train them right.
Let us all strive to live like the Proverbs 31 lady.
Please leave a comment and let me know how you are doing that. Let us hold each other accountable.
Description of a Worthy Woman-Proverbs 31:
For her worth is far above jewels.
11 The heart of her husband trusts in her,
And he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
13 She looks for wool and flax
And works with her hands in delight.
14 She is like merchant ships;
She brings her food from afar.
15 She rises also while it is still night
And gives food to her household
And portions to her maidens.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
From her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She girds herself with strength
And makes her arms strong.
18 She senses that her gain is good;
Her lamp does not go out at night.
19 She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
And her hands grasp the spindle.
20 She extends her hand to the poor,
And she stretches out her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household,
For all her household are clothed with scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for herself;
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates,
When he sits among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
And supplies belts to the tradesmen.
25 Strength and dignity are her clothing,
And she smiles at the future.
26 She opens her mouth in wisdom,
And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
27 She looks well to the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and bless her;
Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:
29 “Many daughters have done nobly,
But you excel them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
31 Give her the product of her hands,
And let her works praise her in the gates.
