Portrait Of A Beautiful Women

“A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.” Proverbs 31:10

The model woman described in Proverbs is a portrait of ideal womanhood. The focus of this portrait is a woman’s relationship with God, not her specific abilities or marital status. The Proverbs 31 woman realizes that regardless of her natural talents or acquired skills, or all her accomplishments, her strength comes from God. She shines as a bright beacon in this wonderful Old Testament book. Today as we see women of all ages following the wrong role models, we are refreshed to find a timeless example of virtue, responsibility and good sense. Here, in this lovely picture of womanhood, is a woman who embodies the qualities which every believing woman should strive for in her personal life and appearance, in her family life, and in her daily duties.

Pearls Of Wisdom…

“The sweetest of all sounds is praise.”

“Blest be the tie that binds our hearts in Christian love. The fellowship of kindred minds is like to that above.”

Scripture To Ponder…

“We are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus so we can do the good things He planned long ago for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6

Jo’s Corner…

Sometime during this fall season someone will need your support and fellowship. A friend in trouble is one of the most important people in the world; and fellowship is the funnel through which our love flows to others. Do you have a friend in need today? Ask God to help you to see others needs and reach out with comfort and support. He will bless each of you in the process.

Weekly Prayer…

Father, in tuff times, help us to stay motivated and calm. Help us to see how far we have come and not how far we have to go. Help us to count our blessings and not our what we have been missing. May each day bring new chances to grow, new beautiful things to see and new goals to pursue. Help us to see every new day as a miracle from You. In Your Name, Amen.

Sweet Blessings
