ABC's of the Word - H

Seems I'm a bit behind on all my posts. God's word is always timely though.

For more ABC's of the Word make sure to stop by and visit our gracious host Pam at Grey Like Snuffie. She has inspired many of us to search through God's word in a new way. Make sure to stop and visit some of the other ladies who share their letter each week too.

This weeks Letter is H.

One for all of us ladies.

Proverbs 31:27-31 (NASB)
27She looks well to the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
28Her children rise up and bless her;
Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:
29"Many daughters have done nobly,
But you excel them all."
30Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
31Give her the product of her hands,
And let her works praise her in the gates.
Reading through this verse reminds me that being a wife who respects and loves her husband, and who loves her child, is beautiful in the eyes of the Lord. When we love our family by caring for them our of our reverence and love for our Lord, we are pleasing in His sight.
In Him,

Oh Carol,
thanks for your comment over on my site. You said it reminded you of being in church with Brett.... ummm, well, you nailed it, right on the head.
It was my husband I was talking about.
now that will put my last few posts in a better light, and you will understand why I couched it in such terms...
I don't think he would be ready to give me permission to share that openly...

Love you so much,

Yes Carol-this is so true. I have to be in more of a mind set to love them as Christ.

Thanks for sharing this!
