PROVERBS 31:10-31 (The Message with Christ's Church in Rwanda edits) - SONG TO A GREAT MUM

A good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than all the diamonds in Congo.

Her husband trusts her without reserve, and never has reason to regret it.

Never spiteful, she treats him generously all her life long.

She shops around for the best kitenge, and enjoys sewing.

She's like a plane that travels to Dubai and brings back exotic surprises.

She's up before dawn, preparing breakfast for her family and organizing her day.

She looks over a plot and buys it, then, with money she's put aside, plants a garden.

First thing in the morning, she dresses for work, rolls up her sleeves, eager to get started.

She senses the worth of her work, is in no hurry to call it quits for the day.

She's skilled in the crafts of home and kitchen, diligent in hospitality.

She's quick to assist anyone in need, reaches out to help the poor.

She doesn't worry about her family when it rains and becomes cold;
their jackets are all mended and ready to wear.

She makes her own clothing, and dresses in colorful kitenge.

Her husband is greatly respected when he deliberates with the bzee.

She designs wedding gowns and sells them to the wedding shops.

Her clothes are well-made and elegant, and she always faces tomorrow with a smile.

When she speaks she has something wise to say, and she always says it kindly.

She keeps an eye on her household staff, and keeps them all busy and productive.

Her children respect and bless her; her husband joins in with words of praise:

"Many women have done wonderful things, but you've outclassed them all!"

Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades. The woman to be admired and praised
is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-GOD.

Give her everything she deserves! Shower her life with flowers of praises!
