A Word to Wives

Oh how wonderful Marriage can be. Oh how crazy marriage can be when you add kids, responsibility, and the demands of this life. Oh, how important it is to take the time to stop and invest in, love on, and care for our marriages! I was reminded of this the other day.
I wanted to share this great reminder about loving our husbands I came across on my friend, Jewels' blog. What a great reminder. Hope you are challenged and inspired!
"Are you in love with your husband? Not, Do you love him? I know you do. He has been around a long time, and you’re used to him. He is the father of your children.

But are you in love with him?

How long has it been since your heart really squeezed when you looked at him?

 ... Why is it you have forgotten the things that attracted you to him at rst?
... By the grace of God, I want you to start changing your thought pattern.

Tomorrow morning, get your eyes off the toaster or the baby bottles long enough to LOOK at him. Don’t you see the way his coat ts his shoulders? Look at his hands. Do you remember when just to look at his strong hands made your heart lift? Well LOOK at him and remember.

Then loose your tongue and tell him you love him.

Will you ask the Lord to give you a sentimental, romantic, physical, in-love kind of love for your husband? He will do this.

His love in us can change the actual physical quality of our love for our husbands." By Shirley Rice
Take Joy in the Man God has given to you!
