Rubies of Thought

A Sunflower just starting to wake up. Ash took this a couple weeks ago while we worked in the garden.
I decided to start a blog on our gardening efforts. I am terrible at keeping up with my garden diary so I thought I would try blogging about it to keep myself updated on its progress etc. If you would like to see a glimpse of it and my notes on what has worked etc then click on over. All garden stuff will be on there.

Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come Proverbs 31:25

Cross referenced with
Psalms 104:1
Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, thou are clothed with honor and majesty

D&C 88:125
And above all things, clothe yourselves with the bond of charity as with a mantle, which is the bond of perfectness and peace

The more and more I read about this women I am in awe of her, to have half of her traits would be such a boon for us. But also I see that there is a repeating theme, like the verses are reminding us of these desirable qualities and ones to hone and sharpen in our own identities.

She is honorable, can be trusted in all things, doesn't dawdle in gossip backbiting or sinful things. She clothes herself in upstanding righteous things, and knows she will be judged accordingly. She knows how and what she does righteously and unrighteosly and strives for righteousness.

She doesn't look for the bad or evil in the world or in an individual she see the positive and good in even the most lowest of society. She sees what needs to be seen in a persons character not what the world has made of this person.

This is a gift that I would love to cultivate to see what Heavenly Father sees in everyone. I know we are all just lost and it seems society gets more and more lost as life supposedly gets easier and easier. And we are all just human with very human qualites not the perfection Christ was and is.

Have a Blessed Day



  1. Dear Erika,

    How wonderful to have a garden to blog about! I wonder if anyone would want to hear about my quack grass garden? :)

    I agree that the Proverbs 31 woman is someone that we could spend a lifetime pondering; there is so much to her.

    May you have a wonderful day,



  2. Dear Erika,

    There is nothing more glorious to me that watching a plant grow from a tiny seed. Every time we begin our garden, I marvel at the miracle that Our Lord has provided!

    I too agree with Marqueta, this woman is such an amazing example. But it is true, to look at others with the Love of God in us. This is something to strive for.

    Blessings dear friend,
