Proverbs 31 Woman

To all my Proverbs 31 women, as I read these versus I think that this is a woman of courage and is first and foremost a soldier. She is strong, competent, and loyal to her family. She is  strict when necessary, unbreakable when tested, and hard-working for the sake of her family and community. 


As strong as she may be, this woman of courage is also more graceful and beautiful than a pearl. These apparent contradictions between being both hard and soft, strong and kind, a woman of courage is also more graceful and beautiful than a pearl. These apparent contradictions between being both hard and soft, strong and kind, a woman of the home and a successful businesswoman outside the home, all describe the woman that God created us to be. 

Thousands of years before women of today struggle between balancing motherhood and careers, strength with grace, being a loving mother and wife while contributing to her community as well, the woman of courage is described as encompassing all those roles and thriving in them. True, the woman of courage doesn't have it easy, but her life is meaningful and satisfying. Continue in your purpose my fellow beautiful courageous women.
