The Noble Wife

Worth more than a ruby
Is a wife of noble stature.
Lacking nothing valued,
Her husband trusts in her.

She does not bring him harm
Throughout her godly life.
She works with energy.
She is a faithful wife.

She welcomes all the poor;
Those who aren’t well fed.
For her house she doesn’t fear.
They’re clothed in colored thread.

She welcomes those in need.
Idle bread she will not taste.
Her speech in filled with wisdom,
And her words don’t go to waste.

Even beauty fades.
Charm can lead astray.
A wife who fears the Lord,
She is to be praised.

When you find a wife,
A gift from God you find.
And you are surely blessed
If she’s of noble kind.

Author's note The poems in this blog were written by my children, ages seven through fourteen. The "Why This Blog" post explains how the Lord inspired these poems in answer to a prayer during illness.  The Women of Valor" painting © 2012 is by Danny Hahlbohm, all rights reserved by the artist. I also recommend visiting my children's blog, A Brush with Life, where you will also find beautiful art they have drawn for the glory of God. You can access my complete blog directory at "Writing for the Master."  Now I'd like to ask a very important question.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"

Len Lacroix is the founder of Doulos Missions International.  He was based in Eastern Europe for four years, making disciples, as well as helping leaders to be more effective at making disciples who multiply, developing leaders who multiply, with the ultimate goal of planting churches that multiply. His ministry is now based in the United States with the same goal of helping fulfill the Great Commission.
