    This is my wife. I thank God for her and bless her daily. Our daughters think that they are strong, when all they are is loud. She is strong enough to help me be the man God desires.

    Yes this is a wonderful scripture. I was married 2xs trying to be that virtuous woman. But neither one of my husbands wanted to be a GODLY man. Instead they wanted to be my GOD. Believe me i tried to make it work. But the abuse wasn't worth it! I have 3 beautiful grown children and 7 grandchildren. I also have King Jesus the best man a woman can have.GOD has been good. Still no husband Im great.

    This Proverb has so much to offer young women and men and these are the things that were ttaught once upon a time in church by the older women to the young womten. No one seems to have the love and show csre for tge young generation. This is the type of teaching that is missing from the church today. I was once the type of proverb wife and was physicalyl abused, I took my sons away from that.
