Day Nineteen. Wonderfully made.

30-Day Husband Encouragement Challenge for Wives

Song of Solomon 5:10-16

It is painful to hear a husband or wife criticize a spouse.  Especially if they are criticizing their appearance.  To me, that's just low.  Lame.  Childish even.

I think sometimes, sometimes, some men actually care about how they look -- and what the women in their lives think of how they look.

I like what she says here... 
Have you ever considered how wonderfully God designed men and women? No matter how a man looks - by the standards of the world - a loving God designed them all, and they are all "beautiful" in His sight.
I know looks aren't everything, but I'm not going to lie... I have no complaints when it comes to The Husband's appearance.  

Readers and friends, she tells me to admire him verbally, and since I'm sending this to him, I'm going to do it in writing (as well as try to get this all out in person later).  You have been warned.

Husband.  You are truly wonderfully made.  I can't get enough of your eyes, or your smile.  It's like everything about you was designed just for me.  When I hug you I just want to stay there, resting my head in that space between your shoulder and your neck.  I love your arms, especially when they're around me.  I wouldn't change a thing about you, and anything that has changed has only made you more attractive to me.

I know this challenge is not easy, but you are doing a beautiful job with it. Your expressions are warm and heart-felt. I hope he is enjoying this extra attention.

My favorite line..."When I hug you I just want to stay there, resting my head in that space between your shoulder and your neck."

I know EXACTLY what you are talking about. It is a safe place full of peace and protection. It really is amazing how God is in theh details.

You are doing so great with this challenge. I think your hubs should print these off into a little book and then he should read it all the time. :)
