    I am 75 now, a young 75 full of the joy of all that God has provided and that joy arms me for all that comes now in the person of a very ill adult daughter who needs me physically and emotionally. I have been widowed twice and have a family of ten adult children, 23 grandchildren and sixteen great grandchildren....my most comforting thought is that no matter what, God provides peace!

    Whenever I am feeling guilty about leaving an abusive man after several decades' of marriage (his last alcohol-fueled rage sealed the deal) and I read this Proverb, I am comforted. Despite my flaws, I was those things, I did those things for my ex husband. And I am comforted. My children love me. He is with his other woman. I am recovering health day by day. Praise God.

    Reading this chapter speaks the words of the woman i pray the Holy Spirit will create in me. I thank God for His word.
