"Ruby in the Rough"
It all started with the verse in Proverbs, describing the Virtuous Wife....
"A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies." (vs. 10)
i have shared before the longing and desire to be a wife and mom. To work along side my husband in a way to further giving glory to God.
Over the years, my mom has worked with me, training me to become the kind of wife not only he will one day need, but one the Bible says i should be.
The second half of Proverbs 31 describes the traits of this kind of helpmeet, and it has for several years been my goal to learn different attributes listed.
Because it talks about the WIFE of excellence, i am not there yet, im still in training so to speak. Like a diamond that has yet been chiseled and refined, it is called "in the rough" So i put the two together-
i will someday be a wife, hopefully one of excellence and worth more than rubies, but while im waiting, i am in the rough. . .
so i am a Ruby in the Rough. . .
