Thankful Thursday (Model of a Good Wife)

Today, I'm Thankful for poetry, words, the Bible.  They have pulled me out of the ugliest of moods, helped me through cheating boyfriends, and my own manic thoughts.  I wanted to share these words with you.

Model of a Good Wife...

She takes care of her home and runs it well.  She knows how to buy and sell and make wise investments.  She keeps herself healthy and strong and dresses attractively.  She works diligently and has skills which are marketable.  She is giving and conscientiously prepares for the future.  She contributes to her husband's good reputation.  She is strong, solid honorable, and not afraid of growing older.  She speaks wisely and kindly.  She doesn't sit around doing nothing, but carefully watches what goes around in her home.  Her children and her husband praise her.  She doesn't rely on charm and beauty, but knows that the fear of the Lord is what is most attractive.  She supports her husband and still has a fruitful life of her own which speaks loudly for itself.  (Proverbs 31)
