Proverbs 31 Woman
Now, I can't resist this story - we are sitting in church this past Sunday, right next to Mr. Brian (first mistake!!! Just picking, Mr. Brian!!!) and our pastor is preaching on the Proverbs 31 woman (Ugh, at first I was worried - a Mother's Day sermon on the Proverbs 31 woman!! But he did a super job on it and it was quite encouraging) ok, so here we are sitting in our row and our pastor says, "What makes a woman beautiful?" It was a rhetorical question - we WEREN'T supposed to answer but Mr. Brian leans over to our oldest (age 12) and says, "Makeup!!" At the time we were oblivious to this, but Micah brought it up at lunch - he was smiling and said, "Hey, you know what Mr. Brian said during church?" So, the lesson is - sit FAR, FAR AWAY from Mr. Brian during church - oh yes, and the second lesson?? Wear Makeup Girls!!! :)
When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
