On the back I'm typing out Proverbs 31. It gives great advice, wisdom and inspiration for all women as to how to be virtuous. I certainly feel the need to be a Provers 31 woman as a wife and mother. However, I feel an urgency to strive toward these virtues as a pastor's wife. After all, my husband has a huge job and an extremely important job as someone who pastors and shepherds people. I can either help or hinder him in his calling. That means I have a big job too!
What I can't get over is this line: "She gets up while it is still dark. She provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls."
First of all, who wants to get up while it's still dark? But that's another story all together. What I really gets me is that she has servant girls. If I had servant girls I'm sure I could accomplish the task of becoming a Proverbs 31 woman a whole lot faster!
But for now, I'm doing what I can. I have no servant girls. It's just me and I'm doing the best I know how. Here are the first drafts of my front and back covers for my control journal. I'm hoping they'll keep me focused on why I'm trying to do what I'm trying to do!
