The Excellent Wife

“An excellent wife who can find?  She is far more precious than jewels.  The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.”   Proverbs 31:10-11


   A few months ago our eldest daughter Laura shared this link which I found extremely interesting and enlightening. Scroll down about halfway to the title,Why You Don’t Need Pinterest to be a Proverbs 31 Woman .Take time to read it and we you will have a better understanding of the rest of today’s post.  And why the following words are personal and dedicated to my wife, Connie Rose Collier Pearson.

“An excellent wife who can find?”  I can think of 3 possible answers.

A really lucky dude.

A man who knew exactly what to look for AND could not possibly be wrong.

A man who received her as a gift from God.

Surprise!  Number 3 gets my vote.  Why?

I now know He was at work in her life, making her a godly woman long before we met.

She still allows Him to mold her to this day.

I trust her criticism because I trust her heart.

Together we have “no lack of gain”: many healthy, beautiful and loving grandchildren; a “Sweet Home in Alabama”; scores of friends; meaningful and enriching experiences in locations we could never have imagined when we became one on March 20, 1971;  spiritual growth growing out of a shared understanding of our relationship with Jesus Christ, just to name a few evidences.

Here are some words listed for “precious” in the Thesaurus. I have arranged them into groups (read left to right) of similar adjectives.

Valued           Invaluable

Costly            Expensive

Priceless        Beyond price

Cherished      Treasured            Prized

Favorite         Dear                       Dearest

Beloved          Darling

Adored           Loved                     Special

Just as these verses from Proverbs 31 are only the beginning of how God describes an excellent wife, they only begin to describe who He gave to me when Connie Rose Collier Pearson came into my life.

I Love You, Dear!

Imagine yourself slowly passing a long 18-wheeler on an interstate highway, and you notice it’s an Alias Van Lines truck. Next thing you know, you’re wishing you could see inside and get some clues about the family involved. Where are they from? Where are they headed? Why are they moving? Sure wish I could know their story. Every family has a story, right? Think of as that moving van. The good news is that you are invited to look inside and look around. Open the boxes marked Faith, Family, Finances, Fishing, Furry Friends. There’s even a surprise box marked Random. Inside each box you’ll find a variety of carefully wrapped treasures. Some you will find to be inspirational. Some with a definite educational slant. And yes, often you will unwrap a downright intimate look into one of those passions that have shaped a lifetime. So, come on in and help yourself. The treasures are created for people like you to inspect, handle, and critique. That’s why we’ve made it easy for you to comment. Of course, it’s all free, but if you want to leave a tip, do that by passing along to your friends on your favorite social network. Another place to find me is
