Many Women Have Done Wonderful Things...But You've Outclassed Them All!!!

"She brings him good not harm all the days of her life,her husband can

trust her and she will greatly enrich him"
The statement above from Proverbs 31 is one amongst many of the verses that gives me cause to sigh whenever I read the passage.

Some days after starting this post,It suddenly dawned on me while at a wedding that I shouldn't feel weary about the proverbs 31 woman...rather, I should embrace what she stands for and aspire to be like her. She should be a benchmark to measure my actions and reactions by and yes it is true that I may not get it right all the time, nevertheless I shouldn't stop aspiring to be this woman...she is my role model...

This is a woman who's words can be taken to the bank...she is an epitome of the millenium woman cause she is no slacker neither is she a doormat...

She is analytical and an investor not just in the world of business but also an investor in people. I can not but emphasis the fact that this woman has a very high business acumen hence the reason she is able to make wise decisions effortlessly....

She didn't sit around waiting for her husband to dole out millions in bundle to her...she made do with what she had which tells me she is resourceful.
This woman is A class...she is all about quality...and I don't just mean that in the physical sense...
She is reliable and her husband knows she can count on her to be there regardless of the weather...

This woman is an early riser who delegates efficiently...and she is strong and so come what may, she will weather the storms of life.She's also a good manager who sees to the day to day affairs of her home while climbing the corporate/business ladder herself.

She makes her husband look good in such a way that you cannot but notice the Mister in her life and I bet he is the envy of his colleagues...I'm sure the saying behind every successful man...
Was derived from this virtuous woman who's worth is more than rubies.

She's a planner hence the reason she's at peace with the future and the future of her family...only words of wisdom pours from her mouth that makes me realise that you won't find this priceless woman in the midst of gossips or bad mouthers and if at all you find her there, she will be encouraging them to desist...since she is an investor in people :)...

Inspite of her busy schedule she still makes time out of no time to see to the needs of the poor and the needy this woman has a good heart and feels the pain of others, she doesn't only feel the pain but she helps ease the pain.

Her husband and kids cannot help but be full of compliments for this wholesome woman who is a universal role model to women and it shows...(I can imagine what mother's day is like in this household!!!)
Now do you still wonder why I sigh and go weak when I read this passage???
Being her or at least a slice of her calls for a lot of hardwork and self discipline, nevertheless, it is worth all the hassle.
Charm they say is deceptive...and beauty fades... But the woman who
fears the Lord... Shall be praised.

Kudos to all the ladies and men involved with this project.

Proverbs 31 Man AKA Mr P31

This is a peak into the proverbs 31 woman's life from a man's point of view.He said and I paraphrase "Everyone talks about the Proverbs 31 woman and her virtues but no one thinks about the pressure the husband must be facing."
My view on the proverbs 31 woman will be coming up shortly as well...Happy reading
This was written by Jibola who happens to be blogless at the moment.
I express my sincerest apologies for the delay in the delivery of my two cents on who I'd like to call Mrs. Proverbs 31 (Mrs P31).

Now let's take a peak into her life and kind of bring her to 2010.

Madam P31 is a mini Zizi Cardow, she's probably up at say 4 or 5am. She invests in real estate. She is a very proactive woman, hence why her lamps never go out in the night and she isn't scared of winter. And her husband is famous with the 'elders' because of her. Of course let's not forget that she does her husband "good and not evil all the days of her life".

Not that we have that covered. Let's try and imagine Mr. Proverbs 31. What do you do when you've a wife who's got it covered as far as clothes and food are concerned? Sit back and bask in the ambince of her presence? I don't think so. Knowing her worth I strongly doubt that Mrs. P31 would settle for a man any less hardworking a man than she is.

Rather than just be a blessing and a praise, she would be a constant challenge to her man. I don't mean to make it out as some sort of competition but its in every (right thinking man) to want to be the head and be ahead so to speak (Eph 5:23). Which for all intents and purposes makes her a tough act to follow (for women), or be ahead of (for men). In the end, I feel any man in our age would be glad to have a woman HALF as resourceful as Mrs. P31. Even at that, it would be up to her husband to bring his A-game at all times. In the end the caveat should be placed on that tome of burden - It is less of action and more of heart of fear for God.

Prov 31
27.She carefully watches everything in her household
and suffers nothing from laziness.

28 Her children stand and bless her.
Her husband praises her:
29 “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world,
but you surpass them all!”

30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last;
but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.
31 Reward her for all she has done.
Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.

Long Overdue Thankfulness 004

Praise shouldn't come when everything is seemingly okay...Cobhams Asuquo said this in one of his wonderful worship song and I thought to is on point!
So here is me saying Lord I know you are a living God and you reign in the affairs of men...You know all things and I NoLimit choose to worship regardless of the circumstance....drawing strength from your grace.
You can check the track out here...don't know how to embed from to my blog...any teacher? while we are @ it...enjoy this video...

I have received so many divine favours...yes divine 'cos I know it wasn't by my power or it wasn't a case of oh I qualified for are some of the things I am thankful for...

I am thankful for:

1.My Nephew: He applied to some secondary schools here...but he had his eyes on a particular one.(well I'm not sure that's what they call it here in the UK but where I come from that is what they call it ie Secondary School!:))
People in the UK can bear me witness when I say it a tough one especially when the school is a good one...the available spaces are highly competed for.
He(His parents) got a letter saying he failed to get an admission to the school and the boy was so sad it was horrible...some days later...he(his parents) got another letter apologising for the last one...apparently they said they marked the script wrongly and they had to re-mark...this time around,my nephew got an admission to the school...I guess to say he was delirious with joy will be putting it mildly...this could only have been the G-O-D @ work!!!

2.I don't want to go into details about this particular one...but let's just say God honoured His words and made "the stone which the builders rejected to become the chief cornerstone"...can't say more than that...but all I can say is you can't keep a blessed man down!

3.Blogville...My last post generated some heat!!! It wasn't even intentional but I'm glad it did 'cos I learnt via that is good to learn from others,it doesn't necessarily mean my stand on some issues have shifted(hee hee hee @ Entitled God is still Sovereign!) just means that you learn everyday and other people's view point count!
Also on June 11th some of us will be writing a post about our view on the Proverbs 31 promises to be exciting... so check:Funms, LNQ, Zoe the believer, Jaycee, Gee(Giagerry), Mamarita, moi and hopefully Charri and Simeone's blogs for update on that particular day.

4.God's Grace and Mercy....God's Grace helps me get favours I don't deserve and His mercies helps me escape punishment I truly deserve...need I say more? and they are new every morning so it has no expiry date! This God is the real deal!!!

5.I'm thankful for new opportunities...He is a God of a second chance...Like someone said and I leave you with it...
In the end, everything is okay...if it's not okay, then it's not the end!!!

Enjoy the rest of the week people...and enjoy this track by one of my fav UK artist...Guvna B!
