"She is worth far more than rubies."

I was asked to be a part of a project supporting Women's History Month at McMurry University here in Abilene. "100 Women 100 Words" women of all different walks of life were asked to create something on a 6X6 canvas-"What is your perspective on being a women-the women around you.  I turned mine in today-this was my description and my work-Photo-black/white with color (my 4 kids hands-holding rubies)   The works are going to be photographed and complied into a book and they are holding a reception in the gallery on March 20th for all the participants involved. It was so much fun to be a part of this.  I wanted to share what I did.


               “She is worth far more than rubies” Proverbs 31:10b

The Proverbs 31 Woman is a woman of strength, kindness, generosity, goodness, righteousness, and purity.  All of these words describe her-“for her price is far above rubies.” Proverbs 31:10b  
She is made strong by wisdom, grace and her fear of God.
The Virtuous Woman that God describes in Proverbs 31 illustrates the importance of allowing everything we do daily to flow out of our inner life with God.  Doing everything each day as if it is unto our Lord. 
I believe she is so valuable because she strives to be a woman of Christ and serves others before herself.  I am none of these things outside of Christ, but in Christ I pray that I might be a virtuous woman whose soul is filled with the “fruits of the spirit”, one whose worth to her family and friends, is far above that of rubies.

On This Pathway-
Jill

I love all you girls. Thank you so much for the kind words. My goal is to become a Proverbs 31 woman-in so many ways I fall so short every day. I am so blessed that my Lord and Savior loves me anyways and is molding me daily to be more like Him.
Love each of you sweet Proverbs 31 women-you all are truly a blessing to me.
Hugs
Jill
