Proverbs 31:22- A Tapestry of Beauty

She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. Proverbs 31:22

Life-Size Ark.

In this verse, we get the first look at the woman who is beautiful in God's eyes. 

The verse starts off by talking about her home and how she makes it look good. I never have claimed to be a big fan of the home decorating arena. Sometimes though it is the little things that matter. Getting rid of clutter. Cleaning the floors.

I like the example in this book about how Noah's wife made a home in an ark. Eve called a garden home. So no matter what you call a house, you can make it a home!

Then the Proverbs 31 woman went on to take care of herself. After she took care of her family and the home, she dressed herself in silk and purple. She knew that she was representing her husband and she wanted to represent him well. I know I have said this before, but this is something that I need to work on. Jeans and a t-shirt don't have to be my life! Stink!

I really like the beauty check that Elizabeth has this week

Check #1- Pretend you're a visitor.

Walk into your home like it is the first time that you have been there. What do you notice. What would you change? Such an eye opening experience.

Check #2- Plan several home improvements.

These don't have to be major or cost any money. Scrub stains on your floor. Pick up clutter. Organize a closet. The little things can make a huge difference!

Check #3- Pass it by your husband.

If you want to spend money on the house. Run it by your husband. If he says it needs to wait, patiently wait

Check #4- Put in some overtime.

Be willing to put in some extra work to make your house look great. Nothing good comes from being lazy. This one is something that I need to work on!

  1. Thank you for sharing Elizabeth's home beauty checks. Those are worthwhile thoughts to consider.
    Thank you for sharing at Tell Me a True Story.

    Your captchas are very difficult. This is try #5

    1. I though her beauty checks were good as well.

      Not so sure about those captchas. I don't think that I have a whole lot of say over them...
