A capable, intelligent, and virtuous woman — who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels, and her value is far above rubies or pearls. Prov 31:10 Beautiful gems are not born from luxury, they’re not fashioned by perfection, or wrought by grace. They are birthed in pain, tension and challenge. Buried deep in the earth, covered with dirt and grime, someone has to search hard to find them.
