Proverbs 31 Woman

This morning when I woke up I was thinking about the Proverbs 31 Wife of Noble Character. It must be because I was looking around my house at all of the things I need to get done today and thinking how much I would like to sit down with a cup of coffee and a good book. I haven't left the house since Wednesday night so I am a little stir crazy watching the snow continue to come down. And although it was snowing outside yesterday, the inside of my house looks like a tornado hit it. My girls don't like to clean up any more than I do apparently. . .

Proverbs 31 woman, I am not.
Although some days I do give it a shot.

I woke up this morning with dishes to do.
A mess in every corner and a pile of laundry, too.

My little one wants me to play.
And my thoughts are on what to cook today.

My husband went to work when I was barely awake.
My daughter wanted to start her day with a cupcake.

My day is filled with a list of to-dos.
What should I do first it is so hard to choose.

Before I know it the day will be done.
And I haven't stopped to spend time with the One.

The One that can help me get through this day.
I think it is time for me to stop and pray.

If I don't stop now and spend time with Him,
The rest of my day could be very dim.

All of my dishes will still be there.
My kids have a closet of clean clothes to wear.

And the very best lesson my toddler can see,
Is my bible in hand and the Lord teaching me.

Have a Blessed Day!

Love it! Great poem, Amy. And a great reminder, too. I fail miserably most days at being a Proverbs 31 woman.

Thanks Amy!! That was wonderful and encouraging to me. What an important reminder. I pray that God will help me to give more of me to Him each day so that He can make me more like the kind of women that He wants me to be each day. I agree, this snow can stop any time now!!:)

Amy, oh my gosh, you are really good. This should be published and copyrighted!
So, I didn't read your "first" post, yet. I went to the first month that you started your blog and posted on the first one, which was the last one for that month.
I'll try not to comment on every post.
