Sweet as pumpkin pie...

My two sweeties with their jack-o-lanterns:)

Another cake creation.

Yellow cake with fudge filling and chocolate fondant icing. Not my prettiest cake, but in my opinion it was the best tasting one so far...and isn't that what matters most?

A Virtuous Woman

This is a bible study from Proverbs 31:10-31 that I shared with the women from our church at last months Ladies Night Out. I promised to post it for those ladies that missed it. I am a little late, but I hope you will read this, pray over it and apply these values to your own life.

The following passages from Proverbs 31 describe what the Lord finds in a virtuous woman. Following each of the passages I have a statement to help you translate the verse in a more applicable term.

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
Statement: She is Rare.

11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
Statement: She is trustworthy.

12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
Statement: She is constant in her love.

13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
Statement: She is industrious.

14 She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
Statement: She is thrifty and works well with what she is given.

15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
Statement: She is self-motivated.

16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
Statement: She is enterprising; marked by an energetic spirit and a readiness to act.

17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
Statement: She is willing to do hard work.

18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
Statement: She is willing to work long hours.
19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
Statement: She does not grow weary during monotonous work.
20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
Statement: She is compassionate.

21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
Statement: She is prepared for the future.
22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
Statement: She is a good seamstress; binding things together (not just fabric, but in a relationship). Also I would like to add something that I did not see when I prepared this the first time. The scripture also refers to the clothing that she wears and states that they are fine clothes in the color of purple. Throughout many other scriptures the color purple is a reference of royalty. So along with verse 30 this one also translates to me that she is a child of God...a princess, daughter to the King of Kings.
23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
Statement: Her husband is a leader; he having the authority and influence over their household.
24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
Statement: She is an entrepreneur; managing organizing and assuming the risks of her household and/or business.
25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
Statement: She is not swayed by circumstances.

26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
Statement: She is wise and kind.
27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
Statement: She is duty-conscious.
28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Statement: She is blessed by her family.

29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
Statement: She is not satisfied with being mediocre.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
Statement: She is a woman of God.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
Statement: She is praise worthy.
My prayer for this bible study is that it will positively impact the lives of every woman that reads it. That you will save it, share it, post it on your own blogs and Facebook pages and that you will continue to look back on it and draw strength and encouragement from it and grow in your walk with the Lord. He loves His daughters with a love that is stronger than any earthly father and He wants to take pride in our lives. Make sure you a making your "Daddy" proud:)
