PROVERBS 31

I have been challenged, er, encouraged, to study this chapter in the Bible. As I read through the entire chapter it seems so overwhelming. An example of the "perfect woman" clearly exposes flaws in me, some that I will cringe to admit. Luckily, Kathi is inviting us to face this one verse at a time....

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

This whole chapter is about noble character. What exactly is being noble?

A thesaurus says: worthy, virtuous, honorable.

A dictionary says: high moral qualities.

For me: INTEGRITY comes to mind.
That is... to do what is right even when no one is looking.

I have ideas of what that needs to look like in my own home, and I will be sharing my thoughts on a weekly basis.

You are welcome to follow along my 'reality' journey.

If you would like to participate in this self-study,
please take the time to visit over at
Kathi's blog.
She is quite lovely. =)

Exactly Sheri, I even mentioned this to Brian.

We can read about it, and think about it, but we MUST DO IT, that's what is Important.

Thank you for sharing, I added your link to my post, next week (THURS) you can just copy and paste your link into the comments.

Hope you're having a good Monday (is that possible?)

Sheri,
No woman this side of heaven is perfect. It is the moments of perfection that we should strive for. I think you are a perfect child of God. I love this verse. You should check out Above Rubies.com or org. I can't remember. This is a magazine that a homeschooling woman and her family in Tn. put out. It is free and it has blessed me. Keep striving girl. You have an awesome family.
