My friend invited me to join her at a Bible Study on Proverbs 31 and although I went, my back was too painful sitting in the chairs so I'm home now. However, it was very interesting to break this passage down and really think about the qualities I want to have in my life. I've been convicted lately of how I communicate to men I care about.
I don't know if that's where this deep sense of sadness is coming from, but it's still here even today. I am fine and then all of a sudden it's like a knife is in my heart and I'm deeply, deeply sad over what? I still don't know. It's like my heart is breaking over something and I don't know what or who yet.
I am moving forward with getting my business stuff in order though. I also had the brain scan which was similar to an MRI, but not as scary. The whole time I was on the table listening to the machine whirl above my head I couldn't stop thinking that I was in an episode of Grey's Anatomy and any minute George was going to call dibs on my brain. I know, I'm crazy. But it's what helps me through the day.
Otherwise, just pushing forward. Domi just found out a film he was in was accepted to the Cannes Film Festival which is pretty exciting. I'm going to do some publicity around that now. There's a lot of fun events to attend this week too. Hitting a photo exhibit tomorrow night. Will share on that after it happens. Should be fun.
So that's all for now. Read on if you're curious about the Christian ideal of a perfect wife. Pretty high standard, eh?
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 dark;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her servant girls.
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 Give her the reward she has earned,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
