project 31

When I decided that I wanted to start a blog, I knew it was because there are so many things going on in my life right now. I figured this could be my outlet, my safe haven, my trash talking, my dreams, my weaknesses, my goals, . . .
Not that this wont be just that, but I feel with only 9 posts so far, that now I dont even know what to talk about. So Ive been browsing through some very inspiring blogs. (A few of which you can find here, but not limited to just these) After some thought, Ive decided that I am going to take on the challenge like some of my fellow bloggers.

project 31

What is "Project 31"?  It is a collection of thoughts, ideas, and women who potray beauty in a inspired way.  "Project 31" is you celebrating your God given beauty, and celebrating the beautiful women around you. The meaning behind the project is taken from this:


Proverbs 31

10 Who can find a virtuous wife? 
   
For her worth is far above rubies. 
11 The heart of her husband safely trusts her; 
    So he will have no lack of gain. 
12 She does him good and not evil 
   All the days of her life. 
13 She seeks wool and flax, 
   And willingly works with her hands. 
14 She is like the merchant ships, 
   She brings her food from afar. 
15 She also rises while it is yet night, 
   And provides food for her household, 
   And a portion for her maidservants. 
16 She considers a field and buys it; 
   From her profits she plants a vineyard. 
17 She girds herself with strength, 
   And strengthens her arms. 
18 She perceives that her merchandise is good, 
    And her lamp does not go out by night. 
19 She stretches out her hands to the distaff, 
   And her hand holds the spindle. 
20 She extends her hand to the poor, 
   Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy. 
21 She is not afraid of snow for her household, 
      For all her household is clothed with scarlet. 
22 She makes tapestry for herself; 
      Her clothing is fine linen and purple. 
23 Her husband is known in the gates, 
      When he sits among the elders of the land. 
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
      And supplies sashes for the merchants. 
25 Strength and honor are her clothing; 
      She shall rejoice in time to come. 
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom, 
      And on her tongue is the law of kindness. 
27 She watches over the ways of her household, 
      And does not eat the bread of idleness. 
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed; 
      Her husband also, and he praises her: 
29 “ Many daughters have done well, 
      But you excel them all.” 
30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, 
      But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised. 
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands, 
      And let her own works praise her in the gates.
