The Good Wife is a popular TV show that my good wife and I got hooked on. Each week white lies, big lies, corruption, infedelities, indescretions, scandals, deceipt and other naughtiness found in politics, marriage, and in the court of law are crammed into one 60 minute Sunday night broadcast.
The Good Wife is just a TV show weaving together much of what is wrong with society for our entertainment value (not to mention they all drink A LOT A LOT) and not a model for a happy society. In contrast my wife is the Truly Good Wife!
A good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than diamonds. Proverbs 31:10
My wife Mary in contrast may be armed with a honey do list and a disapproving glance at my Sunday choice of clothes, but I confess her honey do list prods me from my computer chair and I need her help regarding my wardrobe.
Mary is all about her faith, family and friends with special focus and love reserved for our children, and grandchildren. She also loves and affirms me no matter our circumstance. Her joy and laughter for life is infectious. I am blessed.
I would encourage everyone to read all of Proverbs 31. Your wife may shop at target instead of making her own clothes, and she wears jeans instead of fine linens. Your wife may work outside the home and not just exist as solely as the happy homemaker, but this proverb paints a great picture of A Good Wife. And it goes without saying was NOT a scripture passage referenced in creating a TV show called The Good Wife.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised. 31 Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise. Proverbs 31:30-31
Ha!.. Tell that to Julianna Margulies!
May God bless all of you good wives out there. I would add a blessing for you guys but.. let's explain again.. your wives are your blessing.

Some say television is just wasting time and turns our brains to mush, but look at what I have learned. :)
