The work of her hands

woman who fears the Lord 24

(As always, feel free to download & share)

from Proverbs 31
An excellent wife, who can find?

For her worth is far above jewels.
Strength and dignity are her clothing,
And she smiles at the future.
She opens her mouth in Wisdom
And the teaching of Kindness is on her tongue.

She extends her hand to the poor
And stretches out her hand to the needy.

Many daughters have done nobly,
But you excel them all.
Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.

How are you blessing those who need you today, friends?

Photo Backstory: I love this sweet tablescape from my niece’s kitchen. It’s such a warm and welcoming place!

  11. Those hand-stretching opportunities are there – just waiting for us to reach out. But we have to connect, engage – live care real – doesn’t work with smoozing! Your post hit a note in me today – I had a hand-reach opportunity – so glad I took it!

  12. I found your website from the link-up on I like your post – simple but encouraging!

    I would like to invite you to on Fridays for a brand new link-up; it would be a delight to have you join us!
