A Single Woman's Proverbs 31 for Today

A woman of noble character who can find?
  She is worth far more than diamonds. 
Her friends and family have full confidence in her
  and she lacks nothing of value. 
She brings them good, not harm, all the days of her life. 
  She selects produce from Whole Foods
and works with eager hands. She finds good deals. 
She gets up while it is still dark and works out at the gym.
  She considers a condo and buys it; out of her earnings she
plants a colorful garden in the backyard. 
  She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks. 
She sees that her hard work is profitable. 
  In her hand she holds the telephone as she emails
and multi-tasks.  But she knows the value of true rest.
 She is compassionate and opens her arms
  to the poor and needy. 
When it snows, she has no fear, 
  for her SUV has 4-wheel drive. 
She decorates her home tastefully;
  she is clothed in J. Jill and purple. 
 Her husband-to-be is someone she continually prays for,
  that he will be a man of integrity, love and honor,
respected wherever he goes. 
She is clothed with strength and dignity. She has a great
  sense of humor, and can laugh at the days to come. 
She speaks with wisdom, lives life faithful. She watches over
  the affairs of her own life, and doesn't sit around idly. 
Her children-to-be are a gleam in her twinkling eyes, and
  she prays that one day they will call her blessed.
She prays that one day her husband will love and respect her. 
  "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all."
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who
  fears the LORD is to be praised. 
Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works
  bring her praise wherever she goes. 

    -- Jackie M. Johnson
