Post One on my To Do List

These are a few quotes I especially liked from Beautiful In God's Eyes. If you remember, it's on being a Proverbs 31 woman.

"I am to supply beauty in the lives of my husband and children as we struggle though life together. I am to light up the home with sparkle no matter how hard times are." (pg 26)

"As Proverbs 12:4 says, "An excellent wife is the crown of her husband." God's beautiful wife is the crown her husband wears. She is his brightest ornament, and she draws all eyes to him, as one who is eminently honoured and blessed. A crown is a mark of dignity, and a virtuous woman - a person of strength and dignity in her own right - brings respectibilty, credit, and reputation not to herself, but to her husband. Adorning and beautifying his life, she is an honour to him. She is his crown... She desires that her husband be highly respected and esteemed, so she contentedly offers the supreme sacrifice of herself for him." (pg 234)
