Scripture Reading: Proverbs 31:10-31
 
“Let her works praise her.”
“Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the
Lord,  she shall be praised.” (Proverbs 31:30)
 
There is a call of God on the women to step forth and gird themselves with the strength of God.  Wisdom, wealth and mighty power of God is being poured out on women all over the world, to those who will seek God and serve Him.
 
The Word of God promises that a woman who is willing to use her hands and abilities to earn money for God and her household, she will be blessed and have abundance.   Our women`s ministry “Women of Creativity” teaches us to use our hands creatively for God and His use.  In return for our servanthood to God, He promises to bless us and our families.

Materials:
2 paint colors of
  latex paint
paint roller
paint tray &
  liners
thin latex
  gloves
cheesecloth or
  lint free rags
bucket for water
drop cloth to  
 cover floor
 
Painting Tips:
 
Use a water-based interior paint for easy cleanup
 
In figuring the amount of paint, remember ragging calls for half as much the base coat.
 
The base coat should be lighter.  If choosing the same color line, the second color should be about two shades darker on the color chart.
 
If you use a third color, it should be two shades darker than the second color or use a complementary color instead.
 
The final look is determined by the selection of the second and third colors chosen.
 
A lighter color than the base will create a frosty effect and make the room look larger and brighter.
 
A darker color than the base will intensify the base color and give it more drama.
 
The third color increase the options of your decorating.
 
Options:
Light base with one or two darker shades.
 
Dark base with one or two lighter shades.
 
Whatever you do, have fun and  God will bless your hands!
Rag-dabbing is an easy painting technique that anyone can do to make your walls look textured or stucco.  It is done with the use of rags and the flat on your hand and two colors of paint.

Instant sunshine on any day!
Step 2
 
Lightly dip scrunched-up cheesecloth in a second paint color, but do not saturate cloth.  Dab out any excess paint over tray.
Step 1
 
Wearing thin latex gloves to protect hands, paint walls with a base color using a paint roller.  Apply paint with an irregular "N" stroke to avoid streaks.  Allow paint to dry.
 
Cut off 2' section of cheesecloth; dip it in clear water to saturate and wring out completely.  Scrunch the cheesecloth into a compact ball-like shape to fit into the palm of your hand.
Step 3
 
Position cloth against palm of hand and, keeping your hand flat, press paint onto wall.  Continue dabbing and reshape rag periodically, adding more paint as needed.
 
Keep refreshing the rag to maintain the creases that form the pattern.
 
"Who can find a virtuous wife
(women of valor and excellence)?  
For her worth is far above rubies.
