a wise woman

She is gentle and quiet in spirit. She fears the Lord and takes responsibility for her behavior, accepts wisdom, not easily flattered and not self-centered. She is sensible and teachable. She cares more about what God thinks of her more than men's opinions. She can see the difference between a wise man and a foolish one, she is not a market for a fool. She dresses to be attractive and not seductive.

She knows how to guard and keep her heart when a nice guy comes who knows how to play cards. She is not impressed with tiny little things, she knows very well what a godly man is— someone who fears the Lord and walks what he preaches. She knows that if she pursues God with wisdom, He will bring a wise man at the right time.

She has a deferring beauty not a grasping one. She listens to godly counsel and accepts rebuke from other people. She is diligent and passionate toward her goals in life. She doesn't blame anyone instead she prays for them. She forgives and doesn't keep records of wrongs.

She is joyful in her current season, not easily pressured by the people around her because she knows her purpose— to love the LORD in all the days of her life, and to love others just like Christ love her.

Intimacy is emotionally invasive; it requires knowing and being known. But the vulnerability and the self-denial that intimacy necessitates can often feel too costly. So we substitute doing for knowing and giving for being known. We show our love in other ways, we reason. But intimacy has no other way. Without time, without attention, without listening, without touch, we can call it what we like, but it is not intimacy. Alicia Britt Chole
