Discussion for Proverbs 31

    We just saw our believing daughter marry a very lovely unbelieving young man (whom we love and continue to pray for) and, as we parted company after the wedding, I said to her privately: "Darling, be the woman of Proverbs 31. Thank God every day for every blessing and, when you disagree, act, don't react. You will win him without a word by your conduct and actions." Jesus is our King, Redeemer.

    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!
