A Virtuous Woman - Proverbs 31:18
Proverbs 31:18 - She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
The woman in this passage ensures that her dealings are well handled, even if it means staying up late. She works hard and long hours for the good of her family.
Because of the invention of the light bulb we might forget that her candle would have begun when the sun set and she would not rest till the dishes were done, laundry was put away, stories were read, and possibly cleaning if she was away during the day - her candle simply had to burn to get it all done.
A virtuous woman establishes priorities through good time management skills. The more you plan, the better you manage your time and the more you achieve. Use a planner and write everything down in it - writing things down relieves the stress of trying to remember everything. Unless you plan, you cannot manage your time. Resolve to be a virtuous woman.
