A Worthy Woman

We are traveling to Miami today. My mother-in-law passed after a long illness. Thinking of her reminds me to always keep these verses in my heart.
A Worthy Woman
An excellent wife, who can find her?
For her worth is far above jewels.
The heart of her husband trusts in her,
And he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
She looks for wool and flax
And works with her hands with delight.
She is like merchant ships; she brings food
from afar.............
She considers a field and buys it;
From her earnings she plants a vineyard........
She extends her hand to the poor,
And she stretches out her hand to the needy.......
Strength and dignity are her clothing,
And she smiles at the future.
Proverbs 31
