Day 19: Peaceful Diligence, Proverbs 31:19

“She stretches out her hand to the distaff, and her hand holds the spindle.” –verse 19

The image of a spindle, the creaking of the wheel twisting wool into thread.  A woman,gently focused on the work before her. No hesitation, no hurry.  Diligent work, relaxed demeanor.  She may be praying, planning dinner, or enjoying the pace and sound of the spindle doing it’s thing.  A little stretch, a little directing of the material, and a roll of thread at the end of the day.

An image of how we should approach the work before us.  Calm, gentle, purposed, relaxed…
