She Delights Him

She brings him good, not harm all the days of her life. Proverbs 31:12

A lovely portrait of a true and noble wife:

"She delights him with her company and conversation,

sustains him with her strength,

stimulates and sharpens him with her wisdom and intelligence,

emboldens him with her praise,

bolsters him with her cheerfulness,

comforts him with her love,

and heartens him with her courage."

-The Botkin Sisters, Biblical Femininity

(The Botkin girls are a wonderful source of encouragement and have written the book So Much More. A sweet reader of mine, Stephanie, is having a giveaway of this wonderful book over at her blog.  Be sure to enter at My Way Home.)

What kind of encouragement would you give to a woman who has done these things for years? One that has lived her whole marriage trying to be what God has called her to be. One that raises and homeschools her kids. One that goes above and beyond what she is called to do and in the end the more she continues to give the more the husband continues to take?
