A truly good wife is the most
precious treasure a man can find!
Her husband depends on her,
and she never lets him down. She is good to him every day of
and with her own hands she gladly makes clothes.
She is like a sailing ship that brings food from across the
sea. She gets up before daylight to
prepare food for her family and for her servants. She knows how to buy land and how
to plant a vineyard,
and she always works hard. She knows when to buy or sell, and
she stays busy until late at night. She spins her own cloth, and she
helps the poor and the needy. Her family has warm clothing, and
so she doesn’t worry when it snows. She does her own sewing, and
everything she wears is beautiful.
Her husband is a well-known and respected leader in the
city. She makes clothes to sell to the
shop owners. She is strong and graceful, as well as
cheerful about the future. Her words are sensible, and her
advice is thoughtful. She takes good care of her family
and is never lazy. Her children praise her, and with
great pride her husband says,
“There are many good women,
but you are the best!”
Charm can be deceiving, and beauty fades away,
but a woman who
honours theLord deserves to be praised.
I want to believe that you are the very description of the above scripture, for there is no greater praise or honour than to be a strong and courageous mother and woman of God. I know that the journey has not been easy and that you may have had to give up a lot of things to get here. But looking forward to the future from where I am now, I see that only this would be completely fulfilling. In addition to this, I trust that you are also still a respectable doctor, making a difference in whatever small way that you could find.
I have doubted myself for such a long time, but you will be proof, to no one but myself, that I am capable of achieving all these things.
I hope that you always remember where you have come from, and all the blessings that have brought you to where you are now.
