Who can find a Virtuous Woman
Prov. 31: 10- 31
This is one of those scriptures that is never taught. Why I do not know. This gives a guidepost for the young woman put her world in order, your dwelling, to give you structure in your life in Christ. When you read the scriptures where you can put your name in it, ie. her, she, thou, where you see the word he put your husbands name in there and read it some of the vs. will not pertain and they will be colored in blue. There are others that I will expound on. Your dwelling becomes and image of your sanctuary and paradise away from the problems of the world.
10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
A virtuous women basically means who can find a fine women

In walking 30 yrs I have never heard this song it is beautiful I hope you see the same thing. To the new follower whoever you are welcome to the house of Thomas. I wish to make a note anyone younger than me is a child and at times when I use the word take it in that context it is just because of my long walk in Christ, I am 65. This is an Old Testament precept, that is where I live now, with the Gods Of Abraham, Jacob and Isaac. I am going to talk with the Lord for awhile now and then take a nap and have breakfast with Christ in the morning and start my walk again in the wilderness. Say your prayers wherever you are at in the world you are never alone in the house of Thomas. Goodnite.
