I am blessed to have grown daughters who are courageous. They are women of valour, mothers of strength. I marvel as I chat with them about their circumstances, and inside, in the deepest part of me, I whisper a prayer to my God: "Help them, Lord. Strengthen them. And Thank You for their growth in grace. Thank You for helping them with the daily struggles. Most of all, Thank You for giving them hope."
I want them to know that they are women of valour. Jenni of the Blog "One Thing" says it well. She writes that the "Excellent Wife" of Proverbs 31 is a wife of valor. (Go there and read the post!)
"What are these things that make up a wife of valor?
- Working diligently
- Providing food
- Getting up early
- Spending wisely
- Helping the poor
- Clothing her family
- Teaching kindness"
I admire them for their courage. More than that, I praise the Lord of Glory, for He is the One who gives them strength.
