Charm can fool
Beauty can trick your heart
Well you’ve got beauty and charm to spare
So I’ve had my eye on you from the start

I know you’re better
You’re better than every woman I know in the world, you are
You are finer than everyone
Everyone gather ’round, for the love I’ve found

This song was written for Carol Gulrud on her 76th birthday, celebrated on July 15, 2011, with her family from all over the country: three daughters, nine granddaughters, and five (almost seven!) great-grandchildren. The song is a gift from her daughters, Cheryl Kaneshiro, Norma-Jean Griffin, and Laurie Kenke.

Psalm 118:24
This is the day the Lord that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Proverbs 31:28-31

Her children speak well of her. Her husband also praises her, saying, “There are many fine women, but you are better than all of them.”
Charm can fool you, and beauty can trick you, but a woman who respects the Lord should be praised.
Give her the reward she has earned; she should be praised in public for what she has done.
