verses 16-18: “She considers a field and buys it; From her earnings she plants a vineyard. She girds herself with strength, And makes her arms strong. She senses that her gain is good; Her lamp does not go out at night.”

The one franchise that is open 24/7, always oncall….is mother. What mother hasn’t heard, at sometime in her children’s lives, in the middle of the night….”Ma-maaaaaa, I don’t feel good.” or “Ma-maaaaa! Something scared me!” Mama is always oncall, mama is always there.

Something to think about!
