GATA 2012-13


10 A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies , 11Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. 12She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. 13She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands. 14 She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar. 15 She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her family and portions for her female servants. 16She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard. 17She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. 18 She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night. 19 ln her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers. 20She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy. 21When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet. 22She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple. 23Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land. 24She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes. 25She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. 26She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. 27She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. 28Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: 29 "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all." 30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. 31Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

How sweet, how heavenly is the sight, When those that love the Lord In one another' s peace delight, And so fulfill His Word! When each can feel his brother's sigh And with him bear a part! When sorrow flows from eye to eye, And joy from heart to heart! When, free from envy, scorn, and pride, Our wishes all above, Each can his brother' s failings hide, And show a brother' s love! When love, in one delightful stream, Through every bosom flows , When union sweet, and dear esteem, In every action glows. Love is the golden chain that binds The happy souls above; And he's an heir of Heaven who finds
