A few weeks ago I did a post called Words He Needs to Hear
, about showing our husband our respect through our words of affirmation. Since then I've been thinking how important it is for us, as wives to hear those same words of affirmation from our husbands. While normally my blog posts are directed towards wives, today this is for husbands. So wives, call your husband in the room and let him have a little look at
If I asked for a show of hands of “How many of the wives have had too much affirmation over the past month?” what would I see? Would nearly every wife raise her hand? Would your wife raise her hand? Or would laughter break out across the room.
As women, we often have the feeling that life is ridiculously fast. We have to wear a million different hats as life comes at us with the speed of a thousand gazelles and the chaos of a concert at the state fair. Add to this the voices everywhere around us saying we aren't enough. We get wrapped up in the lies the world loves to throw at us. They love to target women. Wives often go through their day to day life having a feeling that they just don’t measure up.
How can you help? I have a sneaking suspicion that your words of affirmation...words of beauty, truth and love...could help drown out those voices. Every wife wants to hear those words but more importantly, they
need to hear them.
Each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
Help her defeat the lies of the world today guys...
