Our Joni – A Noble Woman – Proverbs 31 (paraphrased)

10 A woman of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her family has full confidence in her  and lacks nothing of value. 12 She brings them good, not harm, all the days of her life. 13 She sees her tasks daily  and works with willing hands. 14 She is like an ambassador,  bringing God’s good will from afar. 15 She gets up early every day with enthusiasm and a determination to get to work. 16 She considers an activity or gift and buys it;
out of her earnings she supplies love and fun for her family.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;  her arms are ready for hugs. 18 She sees that her work is profitable,  and she rests content at night. 19 In her hand she holds God’s word  and she fervently awaits the time of worship. 20 She opens her heart to the poor in spirit  and extends her hands to the needy. 21 When troubled times come with her family or friends, she has no fear for these dear ones; for she has them lifted in prayer 22 She works diligently and stays on task, and she is clothed in fine linen and purple. 23 Her parents are respected at the city gate,   where they take their seat among the elders of the land. 24 She makes those around her laugh and encourages with a well-chosen word. 25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;  she has confidence in what’s to come. 26 She speaks with wisdom,  and faithful instruction is on her tongue. 27 She watches over the affairs of her home  and does not eat the bread of idleness. 28 Her church family, her friends, her nieces and nephews arise and call her blessed; her sisters and brothers also, and they praise her: 29 “Many women do noble things,  but you surpass them all.” 30 Her charm was real, her beauty eternal;  this woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. 31 Give her the reward she has earned,
and let her works of eternal love bring her praise at heaven’s gate.
