I read somewhere that “Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.”
When I read that, I thought of my wife. Not because she charmed me by deception, or because her beauty is fleeting– in fact, my wife is gorgeous. And charming! But it’s the rest of the saying that I want to address, so here it goes:
Hannah has been gone for four days now, visiting family in Ohio. But before she left, she packed my lunches for the week. She left a list of easy-to-make meals on the fridge. She made sure all of the laundry was clean. And she finished all of the dishes. For these things, I praise her.
And now I’ve posted it to the public, so you can be praised “at the city gate.”
PS: Hannah is also pregnant with #2!
