Happy Mother’s Day

The Woman Who Fears the Lord

10 An excellent wife who can find?
She is far more precious than 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 harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She seeks wool and flax,
and works with willing hands.
14 She is like the ships of the merchant;
she brings her food from afar.
15 She rises while it is yet night
and provides food for her household
and portions for her maidens.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
17 She dresses herself with strength
and makes her arms strong.
18 She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.
Her lamp does not go out at night.
19 She puts her hands to the distaff,
and her hands hold the spindle.
20 She opens her hand to the poor
and reaches out her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of snow for her household,
for all her household are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes bed 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;
she delivers sashes to the merchant.
25 Strength and dignity are her clothing,
and she laughs at the time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with 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 call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
and let her works praise her in the gates.

Me and my two young babies! 
 I have a lot of learning still to do about being a mommy,
but I had a terrific example in my own mother…and in Mojo’s mom. 
I have been blessed beyond words!

Mojo’s mom loves to tell Girly Girl about the “old days” when she was growing up.  Girly Girl sits with her mesmerized! 

What a beautiful sight to see!

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

Father, I praise you for the work you have done in my life.  I praise you for the examples that you have given me throughout my entire life.  You have surrounded me with Godly women who lead me by not only their actions, but their words.  Today, as we celebrate mothers and the work they do everyday in every home, I pray that you will give us all the ability to train our daughters in the way they should go.  To be an example of a Proverbs 31 woman, wife and mother, but most of all, for our children to see Christ in us.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
