She senses that her gain is good…Prov 31:18a Anne from Shadow Wonder commented on my Day 4 post on this verse and I wanted to expand on and discuss that a little more on today’s post. As a refresher, Anne said, “I had never noticed before that scripture shows this woman actually recognizing that her […]

…for all her household are clothed with scarlet. Prov 31:21 I was talking to my husband about this verse and it’s interesting how this it compares with: Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments…1 Tim 2:9 Over the […]
