As I’ve been visiting my mom here on the farm I grew up on, I’ve had opportunity to go through my dad’s well-worn Bible. It is also high-lighted in various colors, but one that caught my undivided attention was in Proverbs.
Tribute to My Mom
This is a post I wrote almost two years ago. I have just returned from another visit, thinking about my mom a lot. She has persevered the past 2 1/2 years, making decisions and making a “new normal” life. It has not been easy and you never get over the passing away of a spouse or loved one, but she presses on modeling kindness and patience for her daughters and those around her.
“Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies,…”
“She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.” 31:10, 27, 28
I’ve watched my mom for more years than I’m going to tell on a blog! but she definitely is the Proverbs 31 woman and much more. I know she will blush at the thought of me talking about her here, but she is the example I have followed in being the woman God wants me to be. So I come to see her as much as I can.
