10Who can find a virtuous and capable woman in a pandemic? She is more precious than gold.
11Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life.
12She brings him good, not harm,all the days of her life.
13She finds her children’s school assignments and carefully reviews it with them.
14She is like a merchant’s ship, ordering her supplies from afar. (Thanks Amazon Prime) she fears no food shortage, her pantry is full.
15She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household and plan the day’s activities for her family.
16She’s does careful research before investing in the stock market, with her earnings she plants a garden.
17She is energetic and strong, a hard worker.
18She’s not afraid to purchase large quantities of chicken offered by local poultry growers; her lamp burns late into the night. No one goes hungry on her watch
19Her hands are busy with quarantine projects, her fingers aren’t afraid to try something new. (Like learning a new crochet pattern)
20She extends a helping hand to the poor at the food pantry; notices and befriends the one who needs encouragement; and opens her arms to make masks for the needy.
21She has no fear of the May winter for her household, for everyone has warm clothes;the most vulnerable plants in her garden are covered; and she trusts in God to protect the rest.
22She makes her own bedspreads. She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns although all social events are canceled.
23Her husband is well known in the town, even when social distancing keeps him away.
24 She keeps an eye on Facebook Marketplace when the options for thrifting and yardsaling for her children’s clothes aren’t possible this year. She makes belted linen garments and sashes for her family, they dress well.
25She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she shrugs at the conspiracy theories around her; laughs without fear of the future.
26When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness. Her life is full of peace.
27She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness.
28Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her:
29“There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!”
30Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly praised.
31Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise
Happy Mother’s Day Weekend to the numerous ladies who’ve blessed my life, but especially my darling Mother- I’m so thankful for you ❤️
