"This woman is not a living in a perfect environmnet where life is a breeze.  She is living in the real world, and she is up to the challenge.  No wonder her husband trusts her.  He feels honored to be her husband.  This woman that God gave him is his greatest earthly treasure.  In fact,  there is only one person this husband trusts more than his wife, and that is Jesus Christ himself.  She has won a deep place in his heart.  She is "an excellent wife," and her husband cherishes her."  ~  Ray Ortlund Jr.
