A wife of noble character who can find?
    She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
    and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
    all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
    and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
    bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
    she provides food for her family
    and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
    out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
    her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
    and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
    and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
    and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
    for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
    she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
    where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
    and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
    she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
    and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

Proverbs 31:10-31

With this website being rife with feminism and homosexuality, I thought I would take a moment to pay tribute to a true Christian lady, my wife.

A man and a woman bound in marriage as Christ as head is a positive and wonderful thing. The world would want to make it negative. Extreme feminism and men's rights movements call for the separation of sexes and extreme LGBT movements call married couples with children "breeders". God would have us to be united and to love one another. A brothers and sister in Christ to love each other as he would have us do. Yet there are those who would have us adopt the sentiments of the world.

Amen MFG, Yes Husband, Wife and Jesus.  Will the church be his bride?  

Psalms 45:14-17

14 She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.

15 With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king's palace.

16 Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth.

17 I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.

Praise God.  This is touching to me.  Have a wonderful Sabbath.

the whole thing is spot on about JESUS and His Bride!

(us!)

Its Wonderful Heisenberg 

Thank you for posting Sadly LGBT has put a mark here already. Trying to justify their lifestyle. 

  I have the most foolishly awesome  wife. She makes everyone's life better .  If anyone fulfills Proverbs 31 it is my wife does . She is tireless in her service to our family. She shames me in her unselfishness. Even my parents she speaks to them more often than me.  No matter my foolishness all she does is uplift me.  My reputation is kept because of her. I have ADHD yet it never phases her . She always tells me the straight truth and never patronizes

me. She calls to remind me my schedule even though she is working herself . My brothers and sisters think it is because she is Chinese but I see the tears falling from her eyes when she prays. God is in her  I try my best to serve her but I feel lacking.  What possessed her to say yes when I asked her to marry me . She said no to many other men . I truly love her. Who would not.

I understand exactly what you mean.  My wife's reputation, much like the scripture does me credit, despite my typically introverted, stand offish personality.

My wife said yes I'll marry you, fifty years ago this October. She was definitely a gift from God.

However,I am the master of our household, and she GIVES ME PERMISSION TO SAY SO! 

Truly she is the greatest. Thank you Lord.

That is great because to be master means to be a servant and to put the others needs ahead of your own . So it is a great thing to be a master as Jesus was and give your life for your wife. I am sure that is why your wife is happy.
