I am so thankful for the man that I have, and am honored to call him my “husband.” He is wise, strong, a hard worker, diligent, protective. I am able to trust him, and he IS far more precious than any jewel. He is compassionate, respectful, and a man who fears the Lord. So many times, this Proverbs 31 passage is used as an example of what a woman should be like–which is great, but did you notice how many attributes are also beautiful for a husband to have? This passage is used by many as an argument that women should not work outside the home, but if you read it in a light that isn’t already tainted with ideas of interpretation, you can see that this passage is not at all restrictive or demeaning. Instead, it is a gorgeous and honoring portrait of a good spouse. Thank you, my dear husband, for being this man for me. I hope that I also am this for you and our children, and it is because of these attributes, that I know our family will be strong. I love you.
