Proverbs 31 Woman

I was reading my friend Amanda's blog http://themabees.blogspot.com/ and was so touched by her words about Proverbs 31 that I had to steal her words and share with you. She says...

I want to be the woman who's husband trusts her, who does him good and not harm all the days of her life, who works with willing hands, who rises before everyone else to take care of needs like clothing and food, a woman who dresses herself with strength physically and spiritually, one who works until the work is done, the one who keeps things steady, who helps the needy, who makes herself appealing for her husband, one who is proud of her husband and lets people know it, who has much dignity, one who overflows with wisdom and has a kind tongue, one who is not lazy, a woman who's children call her blessed and her husband praises her, one who remembers that charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised!(Proverbs 31:10-31)

I read her post a couple of weeks ago and I can not stop thinking about the woman I am and how I measure up to what God calls an excelent wife. My prayer this week is to glorify God in my marriage, in my friendships, in my role as a mother, in my job at work...in every daily task, to reflect the glory of the Lord.
