She's Tired. The dishes aren't going to clean themselves. Soccer practice isn't going to conveniently drive itself to your backyard. Grades aren't going to improve all by themselves. There's so much routine. There's so much repetitive effort. Don't get me wrong, she loves to show love by doing these incredibly loving things, but she's tired. Simply tired.
So, husband, notice her. Notice the routine. Thank her. Let her know that the household runs so much smoother because of the great care she takes to make sure things happen. So much happens because of her. So, help her. Do something you don't normally do. She needs a break. Even one little change in your routine will make a big difference in her routine.
She's Dreamy. It's not that there's fifty dreams in her heart that need to come true. Seriously, there's not. She's not that needy. However, there are a few really important ones. It's different for every wife; somewhat different. She might have dreams of financial stability. Perhaps she dreams dreams of memorable, annual family vacations. You know, the whole family's together and memories are made by each scoop of ice cream consumed at the town parlor. Maybe her dream is for clarity for the future. She wants to know the plan. What's the plan?
Husband, she wants you to dream with her. Actually, she'd love for you to help lead the way. She wants to know you think about your family often. She wants to know that you have a vision for what your family can be. Pray with her. Ask the Lord to direct your steps. Dream. Let her know you can see the whole family going on a mission's trip every other year or vacationing at your favorite spot in California every year. Use your imagination. She'll smile. No, she'll laugh with joy.
She's Special. There's no one on earth quite like her. She's different. She's unique. No one smiles like her or laughs like her. There's no woman on earth that thinks exactly how she thinks. She's special. And you know what, her physical appearance is special, too. She's unique and she's incredibly beautiful. She's your standard of beauty.
So, you know what, appreciate her. Tell her. Look her in the eyes and behold her beauty. Cherish her. You don't need to fantasize about anyone else or set your eyes on images that aren't her. Keep your marriage bed pure. She's all you need. Water where you're planted. As you do, your passion for one another will grow wildly satisfying.
Men, you have a woman, an amazing wife, to live alongside. Make every moment count.
You Are Loved!
