Vera Mae Hansen
Town of Wawayanda, New York
From Proverbs 31
It is hard to find a good wife,
because she is worth more than rubies.
Her husband trusts her completely.
With her, he has everything he needs.
She does him good and not harm
for as long as she lives.
She looks for wool and flax
and likes to work with her hands.
She is like a trader's ship,
bringing food from far away.
She gets up while it is still dark
and prepares food for her family

Her husband also praises her,
saying, "There are many fine women,
but you are better than all of them."
Charm can fool you, and beauty can trick you,
but a woman who respects the LORD should be praised.
Give her the reward she has earned;
she should be praised in public for what she has done.
