She's Back!!

It's time to resume our journey to {try} and become like the Proverbs 31 woman.  
We have reached the 15th checkpoint.  We're almost there!  

A Tapestry of Beauty
~Her Handiwork~
"She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple."
Proverbs 31:22

Beauty Check!
Not for ourselves but for our homes!  My biggest desire is to be the best homemaker I can possibly be.  And as a homemaker, my job would be to make sure that my home looks as beautiful as it possibly can.  My home is not just a reflection of my taste and personality.  It's also a reflection on my testimony for God.

Beauty Check #1--Pretend YOU are the visitor.

Walk through the place where you live. What do you see?  What would a guest notice?  What mood does your home invite?    What pleases you about what you see--and what would you like to improve?  Any sore eyes?  Clutter?  As the homemaker, you are in the position to generate powerful impressions and create a welcoming atmosphere and beautiful environment.

Beauty Check #2--Plan Several Home Improvements

God's beautiful woman is certainly a do-it-yourselfer!  Now, I'm not the greatest when it comes to being very crafty...but I'm learning!  Keep this in mind and you take inventory of your home.  What projects are you working on?  Do your cabinets need a fresh coat of stain or polish?  Do your windows need a good cleaning?
Now, before you start thinking like me, and start thinking about all the money it will cost....Not all improvements will cost you!  Sometimes just cleaning up areas with some clutter will make a world of difference!

Beauty Check #3--Pass It By Your Husband

The Proverbs 31 woman certainly has her priorities in order.  The first item on her list is clothing for her family.  After that comes the house.  Be sure--with your husband and your checkbook--that now is the right time to spend money on home decor.  After all, God's beautiful woman knows how to wait! {Proverbs 31:2}

Beauty Check #4--Put In Some Overtime

As a Proverbs 31 woman, sometimes we may have to work long and late.  Set aside a Saturday or a an evening for a home improvement project.

Wherever home is for you, it's an expression of you--your virtues, your abilities, your love.  You may not be able to determine the kind of home you have, but you can determine its beauty. 
You control whether it's clean, organized, and orderly.  You also choose your favorite colors, styles, and moods.

See you soon!
