It said that a wife should buy yarn and fabric and sew lots of awesome stuff! I knew it - and I already have a ton of yarn!
My husband wasn't so sure my understanding was correct....and even if I insisted in taking only small snippets here and there of the passage, that the 'finding' refers specifically to FREE yarn and fabric you happen to find.
A good wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.
She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands.
Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her.
Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.
Proverbs 31:10, 13, 28, 31
Yup! My husband calls me his "Proverbs 31" wife for so many, many different reasons! lol
I think I need to go shopping... my stash is looking kinda puny...
Good to know I'm doing something right.
Thanks for this! I missed mass this weekend (and I'm feeling guilty about it...) but I guess I don't have to feel guilty about my stash. Or I won't when and if I become a wife....
HA! We chose this for the 1st Reading at our wedding this past April--I too perked up as son as they started reading it yesterday morning!!!
Wonderful passage. Good to know the Lord is supportive of us :) especially when we use it for others.
Perfect. It's always nice to have validation!
I love this post and this is one of my favorite passages. Thanks for sharing.
You know I sat there and listened to that sermon twice and didn't pick up on this aspect! I'm liking your perspective on this reading!!
i think i might have some of that good wife stuff under my belt!!!
Just joined. LOVE your scrap section esp. that Needle Case. I'm not a quilter, but do love sewing with scraps. This week came across a source of free drapery/upholstery material not too far from us...so was looking for a few more ideas. Your work is beautifully done.
