Project 31

Proverbs 31  

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

Her husband has full confidence in her
   and lacks nothing of value.

She brings him good, not harm,
   all the days of her life.

She selects wool and flax
   and works with eager hands.

She is like the merchant ships,
   bringing her food from afar.

She gets up while it is still night;
   she provides food for her family
   and portions for her female servants.

 She considers a field and buys it;
   out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.

 She sets about her work vigorously;
   her arms are strong for her tasks.

She sees that her trading is profitable,
   and her lamp does not go out at night.
In her hand she holds the distaff
   and grasps the spindle with her fingers.

 She opens her arms to the poor
   and extends her hands to the needy.

When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
   for all of them are clothed in scarlet.

She makes coverings for her bed;
   she is clothed in fine linen and purple.

Her husband is respected at the city gate,
   where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.

She makes linen garments and sells them,
   and supplies the merchants with sashes.

She is clothed with strength and dignity;
   she can laugh at the days to come.

She speaks with wisdom,
   and faithful instruction is on her tongue. 


She watches over the affairs of her household 
   and does not eat the bread of idleness.

Her children arise and call her blessed;
   her husband also, and he praises her:
“Many women do noble things,
   but you surpass them all.”

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
   but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

Honor her for all that her hands have done,
   and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.


Day One: What does beauty mean to you?

The above proverb says that beauty is fleeting, which is true in a physical sense, but I think real beauty lasts forever, it grows and flourishes and is the physical being of love. Love is beautiful and when something is made in love or starts because of love or represents love it is beauty.

Green leaves on a tree are beautiful. Flowers in cluster are beautiful. A single lonely flower is beautiful. Grand mountains and rugged terrain is beautiful. Nature is beautiful because it is Gods perfect creation.

Often times the human spirit is beautiful; it has hope and is courageous and triumphs. 

Beauty is not loreal, or covergirl, its a spirit that lives inside of us. That spirit is loving, kind, generous, hopeful and reaches out from that person and manages to touch the life of another. We can only achieve that beautiful spirit with God.
