The Proverbs 31 Woman

Read Proverbs 31:10-31 here and then come right back so we can talk about it . . .

I’ve decided to name this woman Lailah (it just came to me and I went with it). Ok but is she serious? For realz, Lailah? You want me to be like you and do all that stuff you do?

Based on Lailah’s example I need to:

  1. Learn to sew
  2. Step my vitamin game up, so I have the energy to wake up early but go to bed late
  3. Negotiate property deals
  4. Garden
  5. Hit the gym for strength
  6. Increase my benevolent outreach
  7. Get new clothes with some silk and purple
  8. Marry . . .
  9. A man who is respected by our elders
  10. Start a side hustle selling goods
  11. Watch my mouth
  12. Stop being lazy
  13. Have some children . . .
  14. Who sing my praises

As of today, I only do #5 sometimes. I can easily start #2, #6, and #7. Maybe next week. With some serious concentration I can start #4, #10, #11, and #12. Maybe this year. When the time comes I think #14 will take care of itself. However, #3, #8, #9, and #12 will have to involve divine intervention . . . without which #14 will be inconsequential.

Jesus be a baby daddy! (Though I’m not prepared to be the mother of THE savior).

Lailah is on point. I want to be on point too. Ya’ll pray for me.

I'm Mariah. Jesus is my homie. I live in (and was raised in) the south. I am, as often as possible, actively grateful for my family because I understand their life giving power. Really dislike melodramatics. Really love reading and writing so much so that I aspire to be an author. What else?
