Proverbs 31:30

Atmosphere is Essential

My mother, Ruth Graham, once took a poll. She asked several of her young bachelor friends which they would prefer to have in a wife; scenery or atmosphere. Without exception, they all replied, “Scenery.” She then polled her married male friends, asking the same question. Without exception, they all replied, “Scenery would be nice, but atmosphere is essential.” “A woman who feareth (has reverential trust in) the Lord shall be praised.” (Proverbs 31:30). Fear of and total trust in the Lord is the first step toward obtaining inner beauty.
