Wisdom of Proverbs 31

The other day I talked about spinning wool into yarn and how it makes me think about larger issues. I love to find teachable moments in the midst of the everyday. Since Friday is a fun day on the blog I decided to show you what I do. I went through my photographs (I have hundreds) and selected the ones that I thought would tell the story.

She selects wool and flax

and works with eager hands.

Proverbs 31:3

I adore Beatrix Potter and these illustrations grab my heartstrings.


The process begins with sheep. My preference is to buy wool from small local growers who provide a safe and loving home for sheep. They grow the best wool.
Finished yarn and a few of my spindles.

So there you have a short lesson combined with my love for working with my hands to make yarn. I sell my yarn helping to provide for my family. I am not idle. I work everyday despite rarely leaving my home. If you haven’t read Proverbs 31 in a while, go give it a read. Some would cast it aside as being old fashioned and repressive towards women. I don’t see it that way. I see it as a glorious homage to the value of a woman. Women are portrayed as caregivers, businesswomen, hard working, valuable, and worthy of great esteem. That is the woman I seek to become.

Until Monday, have a joyous weekend spending time with those you love making memories and sharing the love of Christ with everyone you encounter.
