Whether Ye Eat or Drink

Proverbs 31:18 says, “She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.” As I meditated on this verse in Proverbs, I was reminded of an incident in my early years as a mom, when the Lord helped me to overcome some frustrating moments. But first let me back up a […]

Whether Ye Eat or Drink Proverbs 31:17 says, “She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.” As little girls, most of us dreamed of the day we would meet our handsome prince, fall in love and marry him, to then live happily ever after. In our make-believe world, we were going to live […]

Proverbs 31:16 “She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.” Spring is here! (Or for those of us living in ND/MN, it is just around the corner … I think). It is time to start planning our gardens. What will we plant this year? Where will […]

With Mother’s Day having recently passed, the Proverbs 31 passage about the virtuous woman has been going through my mind. “Far Above Rubies” is compiled of many different articles and published every other month with one purpose in mind: to help each and every one of us ladies become a virtuous woman.

Just the other day, my children and their families were over for dinner. Most of us had finished eating, but were still gathered around the table talking, when I heard one of my daughters saying to my grandson, “So, I see this is going to be another long, drawn-out meal!” I chuckled as I looked […]
