The Other Proverbs Woman

I assume most are familiar with the Proverbs 31 woman. If not, you can read more about her here.

I want to talk about this one;

The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish tears it down with her own hands. Proverbs 14:1

“but the foolish tears it down with her own hands.”

GUILTY!  Now, I don’t literally tear it down. I leave that to my 3 boys.

There are many ways I can tear down my house. There have been times where I’ve been foolish.  It has been something as small as not wanting to make dinner, or fold and put away another load of laundry, to the extreme of getting in my van, driving far away and never wanting to come back.

And everything in between. My words. My thoughts. My choices.

I’m still growing. Still learning as a wife and mother. There are phases and seasons that I will continue to go through with my spouse and 4 kids. Some good, some bad.

But, I know He is there. And knowing, “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”
