Psalm 45:10-11, 13-15

Listen to me, O royal daughter; take heart to what I say. Forget your people and your homeland far away. For your royal husband delights in your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord. [...] The bride, a princess, waits within her chambers, dressed in a gown woven with gold. In her beautiful robes, she is led to the king, accompanied by her bridesmaids. What a joyful, enthusiastic procession as they enter the king's palace!

Proverbs 31:10
Who can find a virtuous and capable wife?
She is worth more than precious rubies

I was reading Proverbs 31 on the virtuous woman this morning and before I even finished verse 10 this thought struck me: There are men out there looking for a woman who is virtuous and capable to be his wife.
I know this sounds quite simplistic, but how special it feels to realize when a man has found you--either married you, is pursuing you, or has stated his intentions--he finds you to be a virtuous and capable woman to be his wife.
It's then that the latter part of the verse makes sense, "She is more precious than rubies." How special that woman feels to know she is cherished so.
