Eshet Chayil - Woman of Valor Framed by Michael Noyes.
Michael, previously a certified master automotive technician, is now a calligrapher, graphic artist and a web designer. He and his wife, Margarita, and their four homeschooled children live in Colonial Heights, VA.
Michael graduated with honors from Columbia Bible College in 1990. He has studied calligraphy under several recognized masters and is a member of the Washington D.C. Calligraphers Guild. His work appears regularly in art shows and conferences around the country.
Michael's art is a meditative experience for him. He is aware of God's love most, with pen and brush in hand, pondering these wondrous texts. His prayer is that you too might, through his art, enjoy a sense of that divine presence and blessing.
Text: A woman of valor, who can find? Her worth is far above jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and nothing shall he lack. She renders him good and not evil all the days of her life. She opens her hand to the needy, and extends her hand to the poor. She is robed in strength and dignity, and cheerfully faces whatever may come. She opens her mouth with wisdom. Her tongue is guided by kindness. She tends to the affairs of her household, and eats not the bread of idleness. Her children come forward and bless her. Her husband too, and he praises her. Many women have done superbly, but you surpass them all. Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a God-fearing woman is much to be praised. Place before her the fruit of her hands. Wherever people gather, her deeds speak her praise. From Proverbs 31
