|Her children arise and call her blessed;|
her husband also, and he praises her:
"Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all."
|Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.|
This verse from the book of wisdom, Proverbs, shares how a blessed wife and mother is to be praised. To begin, her children are grateful for their early training in life and how she's shaped them.
Her husband sets her on a pedestal above all women, saying, "there are many good wives in the world, but you surpass them all."
The praise from her family was special because they were the ones who had watched her in every situation and learned her true character.
Every woman thrives with such encouragement! This is something to think about as you talk to the mothers around you this special weekend. Lift them up, call them blessed.
