The last two sentences in Proverbs:
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.
Like I said in my last post, we own this one, ladies. We are makers, and we do not “eat the bread of idleness” (verse 27). We prefer to keep our hands busy, we can actually focus on others and attend to conversations more easily if we are stitching away at the same time. We were kinesthetic learners in school. Call us anything but idle.
Today I didn’t stitch, but I did do this:Pomegranate jam. Yep. My friend, a sister from another mother, came over and we knocked these out in a few hours. We had picked and juiced my pomegranates last Saturday.
And just in time, because these guys showed up. See those little black dots on the skin of the pom? That’s where they stuck their sharp little proboscises into the seeds and de-juiced them one by one. Sorry guys, party’s over.
