I have been thinking about what I wanted to share with you today. As I was sitting and visiting with my precious mama I realized what I wanted to share.
Have you ever heard of a Proverbs 31 woman? I feel that I have been blessed with a mother who possesses these qualities, and I would like to honor her today by talking about some of my favorite qualities that come from this Scripture.
25 Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She watches over the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many daughters have done well,
But you excel them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
And let her own works praise her in the gates.
Growing up under the love and care of my mom was a blessing that I could not fully appreciate until I was grown and out on my own. As I got older and began to have my own children, I realized all the sacrifices that my mom had made over the years. The verses I listed above are some of my favorite qualities that I feel she possesses. I pray as my children grow that I can show them the same love and care that she has shown us over the years.
I feel as women we have big shoes to feel. I also feel that God has given us such verse as these to guide us along the way.
I pray that you have someone in your life that has shown these same qualities to you. I also pray that we will pass these qualities on to the people around us. Let us strive every day to be Proverbs 31 women.
Have you been blessed with a Proverbs 31 woman in your life? I encourage you to take time today to say, “Thank You” and to let them know just how much they mean to you.
