Am I A Wife of Noble or Questionable Character? Find Out at Joanne’s Place

Give me a task, a challenge, a goal.

Show me a map, make me a list, set a reminder,

I can do it, defeat it, smash it.

31 Days to a More Organized Home: Check

From Couch to 5K: Done

Train and run for a marathon: Twice

Become a wife of noble character: Um, how about a different assignment?

If you haven’t read Proverbs 31: 10-31, here are the high points. Verses 10-31 comprise a Hebrew acrostic poem; each verse begins with a successive letter of the Hebrew alphabet. You’ll find references to the proverb on Twitter and in Pinterest because it’s an excellent self-improvement list–one for each day of the month. It seems that the Bible bloggers were obsessive list makers like me.

I imagine the Proverbs 31 wife as a woman with raven hair, a calm spirit, and laugh lines and curves in all of the right places. I named her Susie.

For three months in a row, each day, I’ve pulled out one of the 31 lines, and worked to become a faultless, noble wife. A Susie.

Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? 

Find out if I was able to become that capable wife by reading the rest of this post over at Joanne’s place. I’m excited to be featured there, and would love for you to visit, too.

I wrote this to honor my husband and celebrate our twenty-five years of marriage. I don’t have our wedding video any more as it was destroyed in a home flood several years ago–a story for some other day. Instead, I’ll borrow a couple of songs and wedding footage from Lee Brice.

I love you, Babe! Here’s to twenty-five more. xo

Comments here are closed, but I’ll talk to you at Joanne’s place. Thank you for taking the time to read!
