Weekend Reflection: Rise Up and Call Her Blessed


My Maternal Grandmother, Me, My Daughter, My Mother. May, 1982.

25 Strength and dignity are her clothing,
    and she laughs at the time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
    and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
27 She looks well to the ways of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women have done excellently,
    but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
    and let her works praise her in the gates.
Proverb 31:25-31 (ESV)

It’s the weekend. You know what to do, right? Slip off your shoes and steal into the stillness. Linking with Sandra Heska King for Still Saturday. I’m also joining Deidra Riggs for The Sunday Community.
