Don’t miss Part 1 and Part 2 of this series! This blog is an excerpt from my book, Rhinestones On My Flip-Flops.
Verse 28: “Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.”
Her children call her blessed even if she blesses them out. Her children and husband praise her because of her gentle reminders. “This is a good meal…y’all say something nice,” or “don’t I look good in this outfit?”
Verse 29: “Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.”
She was a good daughter because her mama told her that she was, and she misses her mother every day. Sniff.
Verse 30: “Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.”
She is confident but not conceited. She’s got a lot of great things going on, but she knows they are gifts from God. She stays humble; she surrounds herself with friends who tell her the truth—in love.
Verse 31: “Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.”
She just walks her walks, tries her best, and doesn’t have to prove a thing. She stays away from people who try to dull her shine and says to them in her sweet, Southern drawl, “Bless yo heart.”
