Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.
~ Proverbs 14:1
This verse creates a very vivid mental image for me: a wise, calm woman with a contented husband and children and a lovely, relaxed home, vs. a foolish, crazy woman tearing down everything she’s built.
Too often, I feel like the second one.
We can build our house by caring for our husband and children, and running our homes well. I want to be the wise woman, not the foolish.
Are there any bloggers that inspire you to build your house? Leave ’em in comments!
Tomorrow is the BIG day and it’s gotten EVEN BIGGER!
Tomorrow is the big day to post and link up your own 31 Days of Encouragement on your own blog! I’ve even got a photo linky for us to use. Use my format—image and verse—or do it your own way. In the immortal words of Nike: JUST DO IT! :-)
DaySpring is all about encouragement. They are partnering with My Home Sweet Home for the 31 Days of Encouragement by sponsoring two Gift Card Baskets at Studio DaySpring that we can use to bless two bloggers who could use our prayers and cards at this time.
Stay tuned tomorrow for details!
