The Proverbs 31 Sista

I've read it before. Many times. But this morning I was reading Proverbs 31 and I just realized how COOL the Proverbs 31 woman is! Sometimes in the past I've had a grudge against her, assuming she was constrained, unable to use her talents, popping out babies left and right as her contribution to the family, and waiting on a man to lead her....and felt completely intimidated at the thought of being her. But this morning as I was reading my eyes were opened to how phenomenal she really is and how much I really do want to be like her someday.

The phrases that hopped off the page to me:
  • Works with eager hands
  • Provides food for her family
  • Considers a field and buys it
  • Out of her earnings she plants a vineyard
  • Sees that her trading is profitable
  • Works vigorously
  • Does good for husband all the days of her life
And my personal favorite (verse 25): She is clothed with strength and dignity, she can laugh at the days to come.

She is motivated, ambitious, strong, dignified, entrepreneurial, intelligent, capable, kind, loving towards her husband/children/the Lord, and has a sense of humor! Now THAT is a list to aspire to...I'm still intimidated by her, but how exciting to try to follow in her footsteps!

The art of being a top golfer includes correct alignment of the pelvis, Moncler shoulders and neck in order to achieve the magic swing that takes them to the pinnacle of their class. UGG Bags The swing of the golfer is actually pelvic rotation which involves the lumbar spine, the sacrum and most importantly the sacroiliac joint.
