HOWDY! “She Walks in Beauty”

“Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”       (Proverbs 31:30)

I know a few of these precious creatures, do you?  If you have found one who would put up with you, Praise God!  Why is it that our eyes seek both charm and beauty everywhere?  As I have aged, I realize them to be fleeting, even after the diabolical ‘face lifts’.  I look at myself and see nothing but sag, wrinkle, blotch, dry skin and flab.  If I was ever an appealing man, it has long disappeared.  I don’t like how I look anymore.  But, back to my original premise.  I never asked the women (2)  with whom I shared years, “Do you fear the Lord?”  I just assumed that to be the case, I guess.  They had charm and beauty for sure and the other, well I just took for granted.  Neither of those plans worked out. After the smoke clears, after the ‘breakup’, I’ve come to realize that divorce is simply “Family Fracture”.  It doesn’t matter that the woman lives for Jesus, there must be the same heart in the man.  Spiritual Maturity comes after hard knocks, but a successful marriage requires Unity in Jesus. Period. Marriage that lasts makes God Smile. Those of you who have persevered  understand that Truth. Praise God for those who have kept ‘keeping on’, for you are the strength and power that has kept God’s Final Judgement at bay. The perfection of years of loving is simply Union of Hearts in Jesus.  Perhaps it is time for another “Family Hug”.  The internet does provide a blessing after all.  And, that’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates.    AMEN
