the proverbs 31 nurse
by lois sigmon turley, rn
who can find a good natured nurse?
for her price is far above silver and gold.
she seeks medicines and skills,
and works willingly with others.
she gives of herself
and considers her own desires last.
a heartwarming smile is hers,
and is made beautiful in her eyes.
she girds herself with honor
and strengthens her ability with patience.
she perceives that her work is good.
her candle does not go out by night.
she lays her hands upon understanding.
she stretches out her hand to the poor;
yet, she reaches forth hands to the needy.
she is not afraid of sorrow,
for her trust is in god.
pride and humility are her clothing,
and she shall rejoice in time to come.
she opens her mouth with comfort,
and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
her associates rise up and call her blessed;
her patients also praise her kindness.
many daughters have helped others,
but you excel them all.
favor is deceitful,
and beauty is vain.
but a nurse that
fears the lord --
she shall be praised!
