A Wife of Noble Character?

"Her husband can trust her,
    and she will greatly enrich his life.
She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.

Proverbs 31:11-12

It's July 31st, what a better day than to read and think about Proverbs 31. 

We took long walks at the beach this past weekend. My husband and me.


We walked and talked, prayed and laughed. Watching other families. Taking a peek into their lives.

Wives sitting on the edge of the water, watching over their children playing in the waves.

Dads playing catch with their kids. Laughing. 

A long time ago I prayed to God to help me become a good christian wife to my husband. He has answered my prayer in so many ways - guiding me along the way to becoming my husband's help meet. 

There are days when I fail and days when I succeed.  

I hope to be the wife my husband can trust. I long to be the wife that gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast and take care of the household for my husband. 

I aim for it. Every day. 

It's ok to fail sometimes. God will help us to become our husband's help meet. He knows we are trying and He can see into our hearts.

On days I carry a lot of worry in my heart, I learned to give it all to God. He will take care of all my worries for me. My heart hurts less when I do.

Don't worry about anything, instead pray about everything. I pray that God will continue to guide me to become a good Proverbs 31 wife. 

He has shown me examples on our Beach vacation. I have had the great opportunity to learn from older women and wives that have been married longer than I have. 

God is still showing me. Teaching me. And I pray that my husband will trust me and that I enrich his life as he has enriched mine. 

We serve an amazing God.


Potato Beef Carrot Baby Purree

In typical German fashion, our staple of potatoes is present in this yummy Potato Beef Carrot dish.

Ingredients for 10 servings:

1. God
2. 600g potatoes 
3. 1kg carrots
4. 300g beef
5. 300ml apple juice





Tip: Puree the Meat and Carrots with the apple juice and drippings if you need additional juices. Do not puree the potatoes, but instead mash them. They will change their consistency and become yucky sticky if pureed.

This dish is also very yummy for the ones among us with fully developped teeth - just add a dash of salt and pepper or any other spices you like and you got a meal for the whole family!
