far above rubies


this woman
a queen
hair-net, gloves, apron
she listens
she is wise

others
just as precious
visit, smile, compare
sharing
sisters

we women are a marvel
we care
we try
we do
we nourish
and show up

what can compare
a good woman


Proverbs 31

25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Hi Cristie ... I left a comment for you on my site but wanted to let you know other people are having trouble with their comments not showing either. There have been a couple of times lately when it shows that you have a new post and when I click on it it tells me your page is not available so I am wondering if these are glitches on "bloggers" part ... I have checked their help line but haven't been able to resolve anything yet. I treasure your comments as always. A peaceful week-end to you.
