I have decided to revive a series which I had begun a long time ago on another of my blogs entitled Seeking Virtue. I quit the series when I took a brief hiatus from blogging to have my firstborn son and simply never started it back up. I decided to kick it back into action because it not only shares what I have found to be valuable content to my readers, but it also helps me, too (and I hope it helps others as well).
What is Virtue
Before I restart this series, let me begin by defining virtue. Most people think that it is all about being just like the Virtuous Woman of Proverbs 31. Which it is…and then some.
Virtue means strong character. Being a woman with strong character is very important to me. It means that I am intentionally choosing to be valuable. Note that word choosing. Character is a choice. It’s not a talent that some people happen to have while others simply don’t. It’s something that I have to purposefully decide to have. And, in order for it to be strengthened, it must be exercised. To exercise it, I need to decide every single day to do it. Be it love my husband, do the housework, or be patient with my kids, I must constantly challenge myself to do things which are full of character. Because they are good. And they are right. Because I’ll be happier if I am full of character. And those around me will be happier, too.
The Seeking Virtue series (which I will be posting when I have time, I’m not going to stress myself out about getting it out at specific times because I want it to remain something I enjoy) will cover the verses of Proverbs 31 and beyond. I will share what I have learned or what I am learning with you along this journey down the straight and narrow. So keep an eye out. I hope to have the next post up within the next couple of weeks.
