The Heart of Her Husband: Day 6

heart

“The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her.” Proverbs 31:11

With Valentine’s Day approaching in just a few days… I thought it would be fun to focus on different aspects of the marriage relationship or rather, how you and I can be better wives! Proverbs 31 tells us that the heart of the virtuous woman’s husband could safely trust in her. Does your husband trust you or does his hear lie in fear of what is coming?

Do you go out of your way to be thoughtful to your husband?

Do you  remember those first days, weeks, months after you met your future husband? You probably daydreamed about him and thought up creative ways to show your love for him. After you were married, you  probably continued to go out of your way to nurture your love for him and his love for you. Then came the baby and perhaps another… and another…

Has life gotten in the way of your love? What kinds of things does your husband really appreciate?

  • A cold glass of lemonade when he’s mowing the grass?
  • A hot bath after a long, hard, stressful day at work?
  • His favorite meal… just because?
  • An hour spent detailing his car?
  • A Sunday afternoon watching the game… without you bugging him about it?
  • A hot breakfast in the morning – even if he leaves really early in the morning?
  • A sack lunch filled with homemade goodies?
  • A long kiss when he walks in the door?

What is it your husband really enjoys? What ways can you show him he is the king of his household and that he is adored?

    My husband still gets these thanks be to God, I also want to thank a lot of people for my rekindled marriage.
    It took a miracle to renew us and we have done that every year of our marriage we find a way to renew. Marriage is not easy. It is hard to believe that a stopped up drain and things going wrong in the house can bring you together but it can. So today we have repaired the kitchen pipes, glad it was not on Valentines day. My husband is a historian and he knows that scripture. When we are under attack by the world he is steadfast to pull us together.
    Sometimes it is my turn as well to remind us of certain scriptures that keep us on track. Gods promices remind us of the promices that we have made to each other. Real life is tuff one day of the week we all want to throw the towel in.
    God tells us he loves us and God is Love. We are to love one another.

    I’ve started doing the little things again for my husband and for months he looked for a hidden motive and even now it can “freak him out” (his works) when he thinks I’m being overly nice :)
