Guard My Words

Set watch O LORD (YHVH)

Incline not my heart

Faithful, Noble, Woman

     An excellent wife who can find?
She is far more precious than jewels.
The heart of her husband trusts in her,
and he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good, and not harm,
all the days of her life.
She seeks wool and flax,
and works with willing hands.
She is like the ships of the merchant;
she brings her food from afar.
She rises while it is yet night
and provides food for her household
and portions for her maidens.
She considers a field and buys it;
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
She dresses herself with strength
and makes her arms strong.
She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.
Her lamp does not go out at night.
She puts her hands to the distaff,
and her hands hold the spindle.
She opens her hand to the poor
and reaches out her hands to the needy.
She is not afraid of snow for her household,
for all her household are clothed in scarlet.
She makes bed coverings for herself;
her clothing is fine linen and purple.
Her husband is known in the gates
when he sits among the elders of the land.
She makes linen garments and sells them;
she delivers sashes to the merchant.
Strength and dignity are her clothing,
and she laughs at the time to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom,
and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
“Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands,
and let her works praise her in the gates.
(Proverbs 31:10-31 ESV)

Salt and Light

 

After having lunch with a friend in downtown Columbia, we were looking for something else fun to do. We decided to look around in the antique store on the square for a while. I looked carefully through the whole store and hadn’t found anything that caught my eye and was about to leave, when I spotted a wonderful cache of tiny antique and vintage salt shakers. The glass ones have sterling lids. The wheels started turning in my mind and I snatched them up and brought them home to my studio.

These would make a wonderful place to store a small memento such as a lock of baby hair or to put tiny inspirational messages in. I’m sure your imagination could come up with something interesting.

Several of these are available at Wall Candy and Cliques Hair Salon in Columbia, as well as Heart and Hands on Main St. in Franklin Tennessee. You could also send me a comment or email and I can make one with your color scheme in mind.
