Happy Birthday Mom Ljung From The Pilgrim Pals

Proverbs 31

10Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

11The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

12She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

13She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

14She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

15She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

16She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

17She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

18She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

19She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

20She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

21She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

22She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

23Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

24She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

25Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

26She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

27She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

28Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

29Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

30Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

31Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Dearest Terry,
You never knew that my Dad used to read out loud these words from Proverbs 31 and tell that's how he felt about my mother.?

Oh, God does lead you to wonderful waters!

We all feel deeply grateful to you.
We celebrated my mother's day up in the mountains, where my Granddad built a shackle for my grandmother to rest in summers.
My parents went for their honeymoon there. So did my uncle Leif and my aunt Gerd in 1946.

So much love, joy, prayers and history are attached to that place.
Now the Pilgrims also have tied bonds to our dearest meeting place this side of heaven.

(We have this hut-book we use to write in every time we visit.
My dear cousin Bjorn had been there this winter and wrote about his grandparents and his father now joined in heaven.
That was so strong, 'cause my cousin usually says..he is not sure about these things.
Now he has written for the whole family to see what his hopes are.
Doesn't that call for a hallelujah?)

My wrist is slowly getting better.
I thank for all your prayers.
Will try to post some over the week-end.
God bless you each and every one even more than He has blessed me.
Then we'll all have the est of days on earth.
Yours Felisol
