Worth Your Weight

 31 days / Seeking Inspiration 
Day three
My Friends are worth far more than they know.

A Wife of Noble Character who can find? 1840 Farm
She is worth far more than rubies. A Minnesota Homestead
Her husband has full confidence in her Timber Creek Farm  and lacks nothing of value. Step into Our Garden
She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. Abundance Farms
She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands. Anderson Family "Farm Project"
She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar. Better Hens and Gardens
She gets up while it is still dark; Sunshine Sisters Farms she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls. Black Fox Homestead
She considers a field and buys it; The Radishgirl Thymes  out of her earnings she plants a vineyard. A Suburban Farmer
She sets about her work vigorously; Old Brodbeck Farm  her arms are strong for her tasks. From a Montana Front Porch
She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night.  Keep Your Memories in Your Shoes
In her hand she hold the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers.  Farmgirls Blog
She opens her arms to the poor and extents her hands to the needy.  Farmhouse 38
When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet. Farmhouse Wife
She makes coverings for her bed: she is clothed in fine linen and purple. Fresh Eggs Daily
Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land. Fresh From Home
She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes. Green Circle Grove
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. Handsome Homesteader
She speaks with wisdom, Everything Home with Carol and faithful instruction is on her tongue. Hope Farms
She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Backyard Farming Connection
Her children arise and call her blessed;  The Egg Basket  her husband also, and he praises her:
"Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all." Lally Broch Farm
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;The (mis) Adventures of a Born Again Farmgirl but a woman who fears the Lord Maple Grove is to be praised.
Give her the reward she has earned, Our Little Coop  and let her works bring her praise  at the city gate. The Urban Farmgirl
To My FCCC friends :)
-According to Proverbs 31 ...all worth their weight in rubies!

My Father's Words

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud, it is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." Love never fails
