Happy Birthday Wifey

On this day in 197# at St. James Hospital in Chicago Heights my beautiful wife was born. She is my beloved in Christ, best friend, wife and mother of my son. The following is from the Book of Proverbs chapter 31 and is most fitting regarding how I feel about her. Happy Birthday Love.
A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her & lacks nothing of value.
She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life...
She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night...
She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.
When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land...
She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.
Charm is deceptive, & beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Give her the reward she has earned,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
