The Proverbs 31 woman is NOT AFRAID.
v. 25 says
Strength and dignity are her clothing,
And she smiles at the future.
This is key. When I think back to what drew my husband to me, it was the fact that I was a happy person. I didn’t whine and cry when I didn’t get my way and I didn’t complain about long lines, traffic or impossible situations. I trusted in God to work things out and he liked that about me. I need to re-cultivate that smile for him. Things ARE different now, there is more work to be done, more pressing deadlines than I have ever faced, but my main attraction is still my smile.
