a reminder

this morning i read proverbs 31. now she is the kind of woman i want to become!

  • she is hard to find and worth far more than rubies
  • she brings her husband good and not harm, all the days of her life
  • she opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy
  • she is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come
  • she watches over the affairs of her household; she does not eat the bread of idleness

what a rockstar.

i also found the chapter’s mention of clothing interesting: “when it snows, she has no fear for her household, for all of them are clothed in scarlet.” when i read that i went back to this post i saw a while ago. i love how mandy sums up the role of clothing in our lives. so good. (so good!)

i don’t know about you, but sometimes i just need a reminder that while clothing and fashion and beauty-related things are fun, they aren’t here to stay. one day i’ll be old and wrinkly and my clothes will be out of date or have holes. there are other, more important things i need to be developing in my life.

“charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”
