Today I'd like to direct your attention to an article written by a fellow writer friend of mine from Home Educating Family Magazine, Shari Popejoy. "What I Find Most Attractive about Your Husband" Originally published January 2013 by Today's Christian Woman Marriage Partnership,was one of those articles that I think is worth a look for today's married couple.
"That ring means he has a wife who honors and respects him, makes good on her promises to him, and makes sure he never regrets that vow he made. It means you'll put the kids to bed early tonight or give up some time with the girls so you can spend some extra moments with him. It means that even if you come home to a messy house, or kids in meltdown, or enough household chores to equal a second job, you'll take a moment to take his hand."
I'm encouraging husbands and wives to give it a few moments of your time. While this isn't something we normally discuss here at VI, marriage is an important topic and one I'm passionate about. Marriage is hard work, not something to be taken lightly. When we love one another with such passion and grace thinking about each other instead of ourselves, marriage can truly last a lifetime.
I know to some Valentine's Day is a cliche, a Hallmark Holiday if you will, but around here it's a friendly reminder of the day my husband proposed to me. It is a reminder of how I want the next 10, even 20 years of our marriage to go. It is a reminder that I want to last forever and for that to happen it will take time, dedication, and commitment on so many levels from both of us.
Thanks for taking the time to give this article some thought and I wish you and your loved one a very happy marriage full of love, grace for one another and passion to last a lifetime. xoxo Gabreial
