A husband of noble character I have found. He is worth far more than diamonds.
I have full confidence in him and lack nothing of value.
He selects wood and paint and works with eager hands.
He is like semi trucks bringing his supplies from afar.
He gets up while it is still dark and makes our morning coffee.
He considers a good buy at the thrift store and by ingenuity improves it.
He aims his study and practice toward results and his lamp doesn't go out early at night
He takes up his tools into his hands and holds the hammer in his grip.
He visits the sick and ministers in practical ways to those in need.
When it snows, he has no fear for his house for he has prepared it for the changing seasons
He pays attention to his appearance and dresses attractively. He speaks well of me and shows his appreciation publicly.
He works with precision on projects such as dollhouses and yard art.
He prepares powerpoints to accompany his sermons.
He is known for strength and dignity and does not fret over the future.
When he speaks, it is with wisdom. Faithful instruction is on his tongue. He watches over the affairs of his household and is not lazy.
His children and grandchildren are proud of him.
And so am I!
I wish him a Happy 60th Birthday and honor him with these words:
"Many men do noble things, but you stand heads above them all"
Charm and sex appeal are overrated and deceptive, but a man who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Give him the honor he deserves and let the results of his work bring him even more recognition.
