I have no interest in being a traditional woman, but I do have all interest in being a Godly woman. I believe there is a difference.

I think Proverbs 31 lays it out for us women the best, and I strive to be a "Proverbs 31 woman". God bless.

10 Who can find a virtuous wife?
        For her worth is far above rubies.
        11The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
        So he will have no lack of gain.
        12She does him good and not evil
        All the days of her life.
        13She seeks wool and flax,
        And willingly works with her hands.
        14She is like the merchant ships,
        She brings her food from afar.
        15She also rises while it is yet night,
        And provides food for her household,
        And a portion for her maidservants.
        16She considers a field and buys it;
        From her profits she plants a vineyard.
        17She girds herself with strength,
        And strengthens her arms.
        18She perceives that her merchandise is good,
        And her lamp does not go out by night.
        19She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
        And her hand holds the spindle.
        20She extends her hand to the poor,
        Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.
        21She is not afraid of snow for her household,
        For all her household is clothed with scarlet.
        22She makes tapestry for herself;
        Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
        23Her husband is known in the gates,
        When he sits among the elders of the land.
        24She makes linen garments and sells them,
        And supplies sashes for the merchants.
        25Strength and honor are her clothing;
        She shall rejoice in time to come.
        26She opens her mouth with wisdom,
        And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
        27She watches over the ways of her household,
        And does not eat the bread of idleness.
        28Her children rise up and call her blessed;
        Her husband also, and he praises her:
        29"Many daughters have done well,
        But you excel them all."
        30Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
        But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
        31Give her of the fruit of her hands,
        And let her own works praise her in the gates.

"To believe that the God of heaven and earth calls me beautiful, well, I think I could rest in that. If I truly knew that He was smitten with me...The desperate search would be over. I would be noticed. Desired. Known."~~Angela Thomas
