She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.
She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.
Her children arise and call her blessed;
When I was a girl I took my mother for granted as she slaved away so graciously for us; cleaning, cooking, ironing our clothes, creating an atmospherically rich home environment and so many fun experiences for us. It wasn’t until I ‘Arose’, grew up and had kids my own AND had to do all the washing myself!!! …that I truly appreciated what an amazing mother she is. "Mum I count myself totally blessed to have a mother as wonderful as you!!"
Dad: "I am a blessed man. It's so easy for me to lift my heart in praise for the woman of my life for 40 years. She loves unconditionally, is always giving, constantly thinking of others and always lives to honour her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. She is my girl"
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" Prov 31 v 10-31
