Finally, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me – put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:8-9

Happy Mother's Day to
each of you mothers.
"Who can find a virtuous
woman? for her price is
far above rubies.....The heart of her husband safely trusts in her, so that he fears no spoil....She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life....She seeks the materials needed to produce what's needed for the family, working willingly with her hands...She also seeks out what's needed to feed her family...rising early, even while it is yet night, preparing and feeding the family and her servants....
Did I just read that right?....she fed the servants?....Wow!...that's a revelation....sounds like something my Lord would do....
She considers a piece of property, and buys it, and with the fruit of her hands she plants it....
Sounds like she manages the purse you think?She girds her loins with strength and strengthens her arms...she is confident in her gifts and abilities and that what she does is good for her family...she stays up all hours to finish her work for them....In all that she does she does not forget the poor and extends her hands forth to the needy...In the Winter months she sees to it that her family has warm garments to wear...and she presents herself in gracious and godly apparel...her husband being known among the elders of the community...she rules her house well with provision and through the merchandising of her labors...and she is clothed with the strength and honor of it...knowing it will make her rejoice in the coming days....She opens her mouth with wisdom; and to her tongue is the law of kindness....she looks well to the ways of her household, and is never lazy....Her children rise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he gives her praise......There are many other women who are good wives....But a godly woman excels them all.....Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain; but a woman that fears the Lord, she shall be praised........Give her of the fruit of her labors; and let her own works praise her in the community....
Proverbs 31:10-31
