Beyond Pearls

Husbands, did you get an elbow in the ribs from your wife during this weekend’s first reading from Proverbs about the “worthy wife”? This beautiful meditation can be applied to both spouses! Think about your spouse’s wonderful qualities in the areas pointed out in the reading:

  • Willingness to share and receive the other’s heart

  • A hard worker

  • Kindness and charity to those inside and outside of the family
  • Goodness that affects the family
  • Faithfulness to God

These (and so many other) qualities make your spouse’s worth “beyond pearls”. Why not take some time today to share that with him or her?!
