31 Days: Day 31 - We Made It! - Happy Birthday Just Bee 'n Me!

Hurray!! We made it - we met the Challenge! 31 Days of reading Proverbs and posting a favorite passage each and every day! It has been such a blessing for me to do this - thank you so much for coming along for the ride!! And now, it's all culminating in Just Bee 'n Me's 4th Birthday!!! Wow! I can't beleive it was 4 years ago already that I sat down at my computer back in Colorado and typed out a message to nobody announcing that I was venturing into this thing called a blog...little did I know that I was about to meet and be inspired by some of the most wonderful, talented, warm, authentic people from all over the world! It has been an amazing journey - and I hope it goes on for many more birthdays!

Thank you to all of you who have ever come here - I am so privileged to have you be a part of this journey with me! And thank you to all of you who have shared your life with me from your little corner of Blogland - I am the richer for it!


Before I get into Proverbs 31, I want to note something personal that is extraordinary - I am venturing today with my Mom to Beaumont, my home town, to start a Beth Moore study, Believing God, with most of the women in my extended family - 2 Aunts and their 3 daughters, my cousins... This is something the Lord gave me a vision for years ago when I began fascilitating Beth Moore studies and now it is finally coming to pass!! I just have to give Him praise for orchestrating something so amazing and then letting me be a part of it on top of that!! I would appreciate your prayers for our journey, and for the study, and also for my Aunt who is battleing brain cancer. She is doing very well, but is not out of the woods
I can't think of a better

"A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.

Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.

She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.

She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.

She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.

She gets up while it is still dark;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her servant girls.

She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.

She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.

She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.

In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.

She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.

When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.

She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.

Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.

She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.

She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.

She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.

Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:

"Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all."

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

Give her the reward she has earned,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate."

Proberbs 31:10-31


"Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised."Proverbs 31:30
