What a BLESSING and JOY it is to wish you HAPPY BIRTHDAY today! Where birthdays are normally a time where life is celebrated, today we shout joyful exaltations and REJOICE in your life.
You have truly been salt and light in my life, mom; and for many others as you have blessed all of our lives.
Today I rise and call you, Irene Dias, blessed.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land. 24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
31 Give her the reward she has earned,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
Thank you, Mom, for being a woman of Noble Character, who fears the Lord, and is irresistible to all who greet your smile.
I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!
