The woman of Proverbs 31
This gal was amazing. Incredible. She could do everything, amazing friends and family. Many women feel intimidated by her. But years ago a lovely woman in the music industry (which was more of a music ministry back then), wrote how she believed that if you look closely at the Proverbs 31 woman, those amazing accomplishments were on a timeline; she was not doing them all at once (which should be obvious to any mother with teenagers. Can you imagine teenage children arising and calling their mother "blessed?" Unless meant in the "my mom is soooo blessed to have me for a child" sense of blessed...)
And of course, the major point of comfort to us: SHE HAD SERVANTS!!!! Couldn't most of us accomplish more with household help??? :-)
