“Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.” Prov.31.10
You will find so few in a lifetime that
When you meet her she shines.
At first you may not see her light
for she does not glitter, but rather glows.
Her calm concern radiating myriad colors;
she inspires trust naturally.
She abides by her heart; follows her beliefs;
dedicates her service to her destiny.
You see the mirth of youth in her bright eyes;
The memory of her smile illuminates a dark night.
She bestows grace in her gestures.
Her manner implies,
“What can I do?”
“How may I help?”
“I’ll be there for you.”
She takes care; she’s generous.
She searches for meaning in small gestures.
She grieves each loss and celebrates every delight.
She marks the journey with a trail of friends.
She counsels patience, temperance, appreciation.
By her light we can find the way.
