Food for Thought: A surprise in blogging....
Saturday! Hello love!
The Hubs has a huge project at work right now and so is having to work from 6am-noon today. Bummer! The boys and I got out of the house at about 8:15 and walked all around my neighborhood for over an hour. Glory glory! Loving this amazing weather...hope it sticks!
I'm so new to this whole blogging thing as most of you know. And over the past few days I've ended up sort of dancing around a whole bunch of blogs of people I don't know at all, but really think it'd be fun to get to know. Now, I'm really big on relationships and by no means do I want to take time away from people in my here and now, but I love that this avenue connects people with similar interests and because of that really offers some fun inspiration. I've heard in church over the years that true community is born from shared interests or activities, so I think it's neat to see how this avenue seems to offer that, even spanning time and distance. And I can't help but think as I've surfed around several people's sites, that I've been surprised at what I'm seeing, displayed in the flesh and shared all around, so much of this :
and worth far more than diamonds.
Her husband trusts her without reserve,
and never has reason to regret it.
Never spiteful, she treats him generously
all her life long.
She shops around for the best yarns and cottons,
and enjoys knitting and sewing.
She's like a trading ship that sails to faraway places
and brings back exotic surprises.
She's up before dawn, preparing breakfast
for her family and organizing her day.
She looks over a field and buys it,
then, with money she's put aside, plants a garden.
First thing in the morning, she dresses for work,
rolls up her sleeves, eager to get started.
She senses the worth of her work,
is in no hurry to call it quits for the day.
She's skilled in the crafts of home and hearth,
diligent in homemaking.
She's quick to assist anyone in need,
reaches out to help the poor.
She doesn't worry about her family when it snows;
their winter clothes are all mended and ready to wear.
She makes her own clothing,
and dresses in colorful linens and silks.
Her husband is greatly respected
when he deliberates with the city fathers.
She designs gowns and sells them,
brings the sweaters she knits to the dress shops.
Her clothes are well-made and elegant,
and she always faces tomorrow with a smile.
When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say,
and she always says it kindly.
She keeps an eye on everyone in her household,
and keeps them all busy and productive.
Her children respect and bless her;
her husband joins in with words of praise:
"Many women have done wonderful things,
but you've outclassed them all!"
Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades.
The woman to be admired and praised
is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God.
Give her everything she deserves!
Festoon her life with praises!
Kinda cool huh? Biblical model of womanhood...displayed on the internet!
Bring it ladies!
