  1. So cool! I have never read that - I want to put it somewhere so I read it everyday.
    Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
    But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised - that is my favorite verse!

  2. so original thoughts you have posted. I like them all. My favorite verse is "She looks for wool and flax
    And works with her hands in delight.
    works joyfully "
