Proverbs 31 10-31

An exellent wife who can find?
She is far more than jewels.
The heart of haer husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.
She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands. She is like the ships of the merchant; she brings her food from afar.
She rises while it is yet night and provides food for her household and portions for her maidens.
She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
She dresses herself with strength and makes her arms strong. She percieves that her merchandise is profitable.
 Her lamp does not go out at night. She puts her hands to the distaff, and her hands hold the spindle. She opens her hand to the poor and reaches out her hands to the needy.
She is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household are clothed in scarlet.
 She makes bed coverings for herself; her clothing is fine linen and purple. Her husband is known in the gates when he sits among the elders of the land.
She makes linen garments and sells them; she delivers sashes to the merchant. Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Herchildren arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: "Many women have done 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.
Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.

Proverbs 31 Woman

This is copied from "busymama431." I thought this was very encouraging, and helpful!

I believe that Proverbs 31 is more than just a poetic pie-in-the-sky dream. It is God's pattern for glorious motherhood. It says "strength and dignity are her clothing" and that "she smiles at the days to come" and that her "children rise up and call her blessed." This is the opposite of the frazzled, exhaused, stressed-out, frustrated motherhood of our day. God desires to take an ordinary mom and transform her into a radiant, set-apart, joyful mother of children. Our job is not to try to become supermoms in our own strength. Rather out job is to lay our lives before Him without reserve and trust him with every detail of our sacred calling. Remember, faithful is He who calls you, who also will do it." (1 Thess. 5:24) Leslie Ludy
