Saturday Musings - A Wife of Noble Character

20170909_roselyn

I'm celebrating my 30th Wedding Anniversary today. We're having a bit of a party with 50 people in the evening I've got a new suit with a bow tie so that I look a bit like a silver haired James Bond. This does have it's benefits as I can fend off the other guys from the most beautiful girl in the room......and I get to take her home with me.

It's at times like this you can't help but reflect over the last 30 years and how you've shared them with another person. I was trying to put into words what I feel towards my wife and found myself at a bit of a loss. How can you express in words your feelings for someone that run so deep?

I therefore I turned to a book that I've come to rely on over my many years.....the Bible. It seems to have just the right thing to say at the right time. Here's a passage from Proverbs 31 that says a few things about a Wife of Noble Character.

10 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.

 

I love Roselyn more than my own life. She's got my heart in her hands and I know that it's safely cherished. What more can a husband ever desire.....other than many, many years ahead together.

Foot massage?

30 years. Congrats. That's staying power.
And if you still give each other foot massages - you've got it made!
