A virtuous woman....

Hey dolls,

Just turned 22 a week ago. Been thinking about what direction my life should take and I found this amazing verse from the bible(Am not religious at all trust me!!) But I feel it truly defines what kind of woman I would like to be. So here goes;

The Proverbs 31 Woman :
Her character as a wife
An excellent wife, who can find?For her worth is far above jewels.
(rare, precious).The heart of her husband trusts in her,And he will have no lack of gain.
(trustworthy).She does him good and not evil All the days of her life(kind).

Her Devotion as a homemaker
She looks for wool and flax And works with her hands in delight(works joyfully).
She is like merchant ships; She brings her food from afar(goes extra mile to get choicest goods).
She rises also while it is still night And gives food to her household And portions to her maidens(disciplined).
She considers a field and buys it; From her earnings she plants a vineyard(enterprising, prudent with money).
She girds herself with strength And makes her arms strong (energetic).
She senses that her gain is good;Her lamp does not go out at night(good steward).
She stretches out her hands to the distaff,And her hands grasp the spindle. (diligent)

Her Generosity as a Neighbour
She extends her hand to the poor,And she stretches out her hands to the needy(compassionate, generous)

Her Devotions as a Homemaker
She is not afraid of the snow for her household,For all her household are clothed with scarlet.
She makes coverings for herself; Her clothing is fine linen and purple (elegant)
Her husband is known in the gates,When he sits among the elders of the land(influential)
She makes linen garments and sells them,And supplies belts to the tradesmen(industrious)

Her Influences as a Teacher
Strength and dignity are her clothing,And she smiles at the future(poised)
She opens her mouth in wisdom,And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue(wise)

Her effectiveness as a Mother
She looks well to the ways of her household,And does not eat the bread of idleness(manages her home)
Her children rise up and bless her;Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:(praiseworthy)"Many daughters have done nobly,But you excel them all." (distinguished)

Her excellence as a Person
Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
Give her the product of her hands,And let her works praise her in the gates(honored)
~ Proverbs 31:10-31

And the fat lady sang....

Hey dolls,

It's been awhile since I last blogged and trust me contrary to popular belief it's not about a lack of things to blog about,it's just that too much has been happening and I got caught up in it all. So here are the updates;

Firstly, am still a temp (sucks, right?! I know) but a happy temp nonetheless. Well, there's a lot of bottlenecks to my becoming permanent and it's taking awhile to remove them. Am happy cause all my friends are helplessly pounding the streets of kampala in search for jobs where they'll pay them a fraction of what I earn as a temp!! Forgive me,I have to gloat.

Secondly, I finally got round to actually signing up for linux training. I gave up trying to learn it on my own. I wont lie, it's boring. so now everyday from 6pm to 9pm am in a little class east of this town trying to get my open source on! I fully intend to finish and actually do the LPI exams (God forbid this goes down the ORACLE way, the certification I trained for but didn't actually do the exams for!)

Thirdly, no thirdly..same ol same ol. No wait ..there is a third. I finally got round to actually getting a business partner and we are starting our very own computer company. We want to focus on network solutions but since we're just starting out, we're beginning with servicing contracts. Momma is indeed a hustler!

Oh and lastlty...unfortunately..i grew older..been on this earth for 22 years. Have nothing to show for it though! Oh and I survived the effin blast. Scared about where this country is headed. just have to wait and see. The bit about the fat lady...I've gained an enormous amount of weight..I feel fat!! Not happy about that one. :(
