    Happy Mothers Day to all mothers of the world.

    How many mothers and wives actually live up to Solomons words of wisdom... Or is it too difficult for modern women:

    Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
    The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
    She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
    She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
    She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
    She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
    She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
    She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
    She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
    She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
    She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
    She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
    She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
    She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
    Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
    She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
    She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
    Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
    Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
    Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. (Proverbs 31:10-30 KJV)

    Maybe the sons and husbands should just simply accept their mothers and wives for what they are; for their virtues as well as their faults. 😕

    Then perhaps we should take a break from the bashing of 'modern women' - at least on this particular day.

    Not seeing laws only a description of what the Bible refer to as a virtuous woman. Maybe its a cultural thing but Im thankful to God that I still live in a backward environment in which we can still tell the sexes apart .. its useful sometimes 🙂

    She will do him good ...[text shortened]... s vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. (Proverbs 31:10-30 KJV)
    Here's the Contemporary Man's translation of this passage.
    Who can find a good woman? For her price is far better than a 56" LED-backlit Flat-Panel HDTV with Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound.

    You can trust her not to cheat on you, so that you do not have to retaliate by banging the little redhead that works down at the gas station.
    She will always be cool and never harsh your mellow.
    She organizes the coat closet, and seeks dirty clothes and throws them in the hamper.
    She is like a fleet of UPS trucks; she is willing to drive hundreds of miles to purchase just the right items.
    She gets up while everyone else is sleeping, and cooks for everyone, so that breakfast is on the table by the time they wake up. She makes sure it's still warm even if they wake up a bit later than she thought they would.
    She considers the Beer isle at the supermarket, and buys only the best brews, and keeps them always in the coldest part of the refrigerator, with chilled mugs awaiting the next pour. Her supply does not run out, for she goes back to the store if there is even the slightest sign that it might, and does so in time for the new beer to reach sufficient coolness.
    She works out, because her husband doesn't want a woman with flabby arms.
    She works on her side-business all night to bring in extra income for her family.
    She lays her hands on the credit card and purchases clothes for her family (she would gladly make the clothes herself, but we have poor Chinese kids to do that).
    She gives money to the pan-handlers at every red light.
    She is not afraid of cold weather, for she has turned on the pilot light for the heater, and purchased thick jackets and blankets for her family. If the heater needs repair, she has discretely summoned a repair man such that her husband is not shamed by his inability to fix it himself.
    She buys clothes that make her look good, but on sale, so that she is a suitable trophy wife for her husband, and makes him look like a better man than he is. She compensates for his lack of career prowess by talking him up at social gatherings and charming his employers.
    She sells Avon and Tupperware products, and earns her commission.
    Her body is pretty toned, and she always looks happy. Because, a sad woman roaming the house is a real downer.
    She keeps her mouth shut during the football game, unless she needs to know what snack to bring next.
    She keeps her kids in line, and never sits around doing nothing.
    Her children tell her how lucky she is to have them, as does her husband.
    You're the most awesome chick on the planet.
    I hate 'fake' chicks, or chicks that are too in to themselves. But a woman that takes care of me, that's cool.

    If you being sarcistic its not working.

    That is a rather good modern version and nothing is wrong with it.
