Oh mercy, here we go! Hi all, first I must say thank you for taking some time out of your day to even check this out, and second of all I must say that I have been on the computer learning new vocabulary and working my brain harder than it has been worked in awhile trying to figure out this “blogging” business. I know…Allie starting a blog?? It shocked me too, but after a little encouraging by some great friends and prayer deep in my heart I thought that maybe the Lord does have something to share through me, or at least bring some encouragement, ideas, or a laugh or two to all of you.
I am starting The Proverbs 31 Girl blog, at proverbs31girl.com not because I claim to be a Proverbs 31 woman by any means, but because as I look at my life and read that chapter, that is who I strive to be. Trust me, I fail every day…but it’s good to have a goal right? :) If anyone needs a refresher you can take a peek here.
10An (M)excellent wife, who can find?
For her worth is far (N)above jewels.
11 The heart of her husband trusts in her,
And he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
13 She looks for wool and flax
And works with her hands in delight.
14 She is like (O)merchant ships;
She brings her food from afar.
15 She (P)rises also while it is still night
And (Q)gives food to her household
And portions to her maidens.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
From her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She (R)girds herself with strength
And makes her arms strong.
18 She senses that her gain is good;
Her lamp does not go out at night.
19 She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
And her hands grasp the spindle.
20 She (S)extends her hand to the poor,
And she stretches out her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household,
For all her household are (T)clothed with scarlet.
22 She makes (U)coverings for herself;
Her clothing is (V)fine linen and (W)purple.
23 Her husband is known (X)in the gates,
When he sits among the elders of the land.
24 She makes (Y)linen garments and sells them,
And supplies belts to the tradesmen.
25 Strength and (Z)dignity are her clothing,
And she smiles at the future.
26 She (AA)opens her mouth in wisdom,
And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
27 She looks well to the ways of her household,
And does not eat the (AB)bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and bless her;
Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:
29 “Many daughters have done nobly,
But you excel them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
But a woman who (AC)fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
31 Give her the product of her hands,
And let her works praise her in the gates.
Wow, challenging huh? I know, like I said…it is a goal:) But through this blog I do hope to encourage, challenge, entertain and also learn with you some of these truths. The areas I specifically hope to cover are:
- Making a house a home/decorating ideas & projects
- Thriftiness/ living life on a budget!!
- and…whatever else inspires me:)
I hope you can walk away with something from this blog, please be patient with me as there is still a lot of jargon this girl needs to learn to set up this sight successfully, so come back often and see the changes made. Thanks again and I am excited to share my life journey with you….
