LIFESTYLE: For every woman

Here is a story that I find very encouraging. It is the story of

the Proverbs 31 Woman. She is a real woman, someone every
girl should strive to be.

Proverbs 31:10-31
"A wife of a noble character who can find? She is worth more
than Rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and
lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the
days of her life. She selects wool and flax and works with
eager hands. She is like the merchant ships, bringing food
from afar. She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food
for her family and portions for her servant girls. She
considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plant a
vineyard. She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are
strong for her tasks. She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night. In her hand she holds
the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers. She opens
her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.
When it snows she has no fear for her household; For all of
them are clothed in scarlet. She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple. Her husband is
respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the
elders of the land. She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes. She is clothed with
strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She
speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her
tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and
does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call
her blessed; her husband also, and her praises her: 'Many
women do noble things, but you surpass them all.' Charm is
deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the
Lord is to be praised. Give her the reward she has earned,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate."

This is the woman we should all strive to be. She is
wonderful. She is responsible, kind, caring, loving, humble,
diligent, everything we should be.

Virtues that we should all have:
