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:
29Many 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.
The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. 2001 (Pr 31:25-30). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.
I want to be ‘That WOMAN’. I want to be what God calls me to be. She was industrious, she was bold and she loved her family. She was fully devoted to her God and the tasks, the ministry of her life. Â She is honest and hard-working. I believe we all want to be what God calls us to be as individual women. Whether we are at home full-time or not. We all need to be focused on what matters. We are so busy, we must be tender-hearted to His guidance. We must determine what is better and what is best and settle only for the best. Â And as we learn to focus solely on the best, we grow in strength and in wisdom.
And for me, I need focus. I have so much going on, our schedule now is hectic to say the least. I love to be organized.When life is in disarray or disorderly, it causes stress in my world. I need to keep it simple. And I need to write everything down or I forget. I used to pride myself at never missing an appointment but that has not been the case lately. So I need a ‘Do Over”.
I used to have this large homemaker’s notebook and then I made it smaller but thicker 😉 It was a pain to drag with me everywhere but it kept me focused and on schedule. Then, my beloved gave me a tablet 😉 I LOVE IT! It is always handy but I still need to write things down. Having my calendar online or on my tab is helping quite a bit But, I must admit, I am finding it a little difficult to change my old ways. How shocking it is that I am not changing! NOT..I am a creature of habit. So, with prayer and a desire not to get in a rut,
Well, as life would have it, while I love my filofax and will always keep one around, I am finally switching to my tab which is a samsung note 12.2 note pro. I also have the samsung note four as a phone.. I love to be able to write on them! It has a working calendar, notepad program and everything I need..
what do you use?
