Home, Heart and Openness of Hand

“The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.  She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.”  Proverbs 31:11,12

“It is in her own home—that this warmth of heart and this openness of hand are first to be shown. It is as wife and mother—that her gentleness performs its most sacred ministry. Her hand wipes away the teardrops when there is sorrow. In sickness she is the tender nurse. She bears upon her own heart every burden that weighs upon her husband. No matter how the world goes with him during the day—when he enters his own door he meets the fragrant atmosphere of love. Other friends may forsake him—but she clings to him with unalterable fidelity. When gloom comes down and adversity falls upon him—her faithful eyes look ever into his like two stars of hope shining in the darkness. When his heart is crushed, beneath her smile it gathers itself again into strength, “like a wind-torn flower in the sunshine.” “You cannot imagine,” wrote De Tocqueville of his wife, “what she is in great trials. Usually so gentle, she then becomes strong and energetic. She watches me without my knowing it; she softens, calms and strengthens me in difficulties which distract me—but leave her serene.” An eloquent tribute—but one which thousands of husbands might give. ” _The Christian Wife, J.R. Miller

    Hi. I’m trying to deal with a plagiarist who steals content from women’s blogs and uses them to promote adult only materials. He’s done it to me, and I found one of your posts here – http://thewomanmag.info/womanflor/2008/08/23/home-heart-and-openness-of-hand/ He’s stolen my content as well.
