A Woman After God's Heart

I have to tell you about a very special woman. 

She is an excellent wife, more precious than jewels. (Proverbs 31:10)

Her husband trusts her, and his trust in her has led to endless gain. (Proverbs 31:11)

She has always done her husband good, and will continue to do so-all the days of her life. (Proverbs 31:12)

She works hard-especially with her hands.  She is a talented seamstress, cook and homemaker. (Proverbs 31:13)

She has always been up early, often the first to rise, to care for her family. (Proverbs 31:15)

She uses her money wisely and works hard to make her purchases fruitful. (Proverbs 31:16)

She is strong.  She makes an effort to stay physically healthy. (Proverbs 31:17)

She works late into the night, until she has completed all of her tasks.  She does not give up! (Proverbs 31:18)

She cares deeply for the poor and needy, often putting their needs above her own. (Proverbs 31:20)

She does not fear for her family in difficult times, she has worked hard to prepare for them. (Proverbs 31:21)

She decorates her home beautifully and is also well-dressed. (Proverbs 31:22)

Her husband is respected and she makes sure she only speaks well of him. (Proverbs 31:23)

She is outwardly and inwardly beautiful.  Dignified and strong. (Proverbs 31:25)

She speaks with wisdom and kindness.  (Proverbs 31:26)

She is never idle, always working to keep her home beautiful and comfortable for her family and friends. (Proverbs 31:27)

She is called blessed by her child and husband. (Proverbs 31:28)

Who is this woman?  She is my mother.  I have been greatly blessed by her all my life.  She has modeled biblical womanhood, marriage and faith to me.  I love her more each day and thank God for her daily.  She is such a blessing to me and my family.
