I've joined a women's study at my church recently, where we are studying our way through the (challenging!) book Created To Be His Help Meet by Debi Pearl. On our first night together, since most of us hadn't gotten the book yet, we studied the woman from Proverbs 31 (Proverbs 31:10-31). This woman is everything I could hope to be and more (but feel like it's such a lofty goal!) She's filled with grace, selflessness, strength, wisdom, and more. And she's a businesswoman, wife, mother, leader (after her husband) and seems to never sleep! It's pretty amazing that God has created us for our husbands, and through Him, we have the ability to be the kind of woman described in this passage.
So after dissecting this passage with some lovely ladies, I got inspired when I got home to create a little gift for each of them. I had been wanting to test out my new Zebra G nib for a while now anyway, so I thought that I'd open up my new pad of Rhodia Paper (oh my gosh, that stuff is so silky smooth!!), crack open my bible, and write out that passage. Holy moly. It's so long when you have to write it all out! But I enjoyed writing it out so much. It allowed me to really absorb some of the lines more than I had while reading it.
I have this verse in calligraphy up for sale in my shop (click the image to go directly there!) I think that it would be the perfect little gift of something special for that special woman in your life.Nikko G nibs in the mail, I studied this little passage from Matthew 22: 36-38. I loved the flourishes that I was able to work with nib, so I thought that I'd make it available in the shop as well as a nice little print.
