Let her own works praise her in the gates....

Last week, my husband had an appointment with a lady at the bank to see about refinancing our house. While filling out paperwork, the lady asked John, "What does your wife do?" He said, "She stays at home with our three children." To which she replied, "So she doesn't do anything?"
John, being a little offended, quickly came to my defense and told her, "My wife is a teacher, a nurse, a financial analyst, a nutritionist, and a chef. She's worth a much higher salary than what you make. Nah...she doesn't do anything."


Proverbs 31:28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

Proverbs 31:31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Having spent several years as a Stay-at-Home Mom and now as a Working Mom I can ASSURE you that what you do is much, much more important, time consuming and fulfilling than ANY job a working mom has to endure.
