beware of strange women....yup, still praying

He who walks with wise men will be wise,
But the companion of fools will be destroyed.
 A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children,
But the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.
Proverbs 13:20, 22

Three weeks tomorrow of sacrificial praying for my husband.  Today’s charge--that my beloved be kept safe from “strange women and evil men.” We’ve been laughing about THAT one ALL day. 

My husband keeps wise counsel.  It’s who he is.  He is the one to whom friends go for sober, thoughtful guidance, and he gets as good as he gives.  His children have inherited from him; even as young people, they are the sober balanced voices among their peer groups-it is a weighty mantle to be worn by those so young, but it is their inheritance.  It’s a legacy inherited on both sides….we are the advice people, more so because we listen more than we talk…there is also wisdom in silence….the ministry of listening.

Lord, I thank You for the company of wise counsel with which You’ve covered my husband (and us all) throughout our lives…diverse communities of faith that enriched and enfolded us; delivering us daily from evil.  Keep him (and us) forever in Your Path, we pray.

And by the way, I am certainly the strangest woman my husband knows…and we both like it like that.
