9 How is your beloved better than others,
most beautiful of women?
How is your beloved better than others,
that you so charge us?
Do your brag about your husband? Do you brag when he helps a friend move, when you wish he had stayed home with you? Do you brag when he takes you out on a date, even though it might not have been exactly what you had in mind? Do you brag about how he plays with the kids even when the toys may not get cleaned up afterward? We need to catch what our husbands do right. What they haven’t quite mastered does not negate all that they do right. They are a work in process just like we are. If a wife were to ask me how to influence her husband to grow, I would say there is no better way than to Encourage, Encourage, Encourage. Brag on your husband!!!
This Week –
- Catch your husband in what he does right and affirm he in that without mentioning in the slightest bit what else you would like.
- Brag on your husband to someone else in front of him.
- Write your husband a note telling him at least 10 things that he does that makes you feel loved.
