I read this Proverbs 31 paraphrase and enjoyed it so here it is for others to enjoy as well. https://reststopforthesoul.com/2014/09/19/a-modern-day-proverbs-31-woman/Are you familiar with the Proverbs 31 woman in the Bible? You might cringe at the mere thought of her…the one who seems to have it all together with a perfect home and perfect kids. Perhaps this passage seems like a foreign language to us because of the culture during which it was written.  I've taken a stab at this by writing my own 21st century version.And in case you didn't already know, this woman in Proverbs 31 was NOT a real woman! This passage of scripture is a portrayal of virtuous qualities to be found in a godly woman.Feel better now? Enjoy and be encouraged!Proverbs 31:10-31A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.A woman who truly seeks after God is rare in today's world. If she were paid for all she does, her annual salary would average around $150,000. Her husband…

19 years

October 1, 1999 I married the most amazing girl I have ever meet. Outside of my salvation that was and has been the best decision of my life. We have had tough times where money was tight or nonexistent,but they have always been bearable because she was by my side. She is creative and adventurous with a spirit that always strives for organization. She is at home on our homestead in a way that makes me want to never leave her side and makes me want to strive for greatness. Not for greatness as the rest of the masses see greatness, but in the way that makes me want to fulfill my wildest dreams. She is first in my heart, my cheerleader and my best friend, the amazing mother of our 8 children. She is my best thing. I love you Jessica and look forward to the best years ahead.

The Bible perspective of false witnesses.

From Deuteronomy 19:15-20

One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.
If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong; Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before the Lord, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days; And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother; Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you. And those which remain shall hear, and fear, and shall henceforth commit no more any such evil among you.

Not much needs being added to this.
