TO ALL THE MOMS OUT THERE!
25 Strength and dignity are her clothing and her position is strong and secure; she rejoices over the future [the latter day or time to come, knowing that she and her family are in readiness for it]!
26 She opens her mouth in skillful and godly Wisdom, and on her tongue is the law of kindness [giving counsel and instruction].
27 She looks well to how things go in her household, and the bread of idleness (gossip, discontent, and self-pity) she will not eat.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied); and her husband boasts of and praises her, [saying],
29 any daughters have done virtuously, nobly, and well [with the strength of character that is steadfast in goodness], but you excel them all.
30 Charm and grace are deceptive, and beauty is vain [because it is not lasting], but a woman who reverently and worshipfully fears the Lord, she shall be praised!
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates [of the city]!
Proverbs 31:25-31 (AMP)
She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness. She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness. Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her: “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!”
Proverbs 31:25-29 (NLT)
Today is Mother’s Day. Or the day we honor our mother/mom for the things she does all year round and who she is… ya know, the booboo fixer, taxi driver, in home chef, laundry service, shoulder to cry on, makeup artist,one who answers all the WHY? questions, someone who is always praying for you.
Growing up I remember mom singing in the kitchen while she was cooking supper. I would sit in the living room and listen and at times fall asleep to the sweet sound of her voice. Mama could sing! Other times I would try the her patience. I knew I had reached the limit when she would speak in strange dialog and then say all the other kids names before saying mine! Then I would be sent to my room to wait for dad. Through the years my mom and I have shared many wonderful moments that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Today I remember Mom. The love she shared, the wisdom she gave, the memories she made…..the life she lived.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly praised. Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.
Proverbs 31:30-31 (NLT)
