Often, people will say that a husband should only be respected if he “earns” it. This attitude is precisely the problem. A wife ought to respect her husband because he is her husband, just as he ought to love and honor her because she is his wife. Your husband might “deserve” it when you mock him, berate him, belittle him, and nag him, but you don’t marry someone in order to give them what they deserve. In marriage, you give them what you’ve promised them, even when they aren’t holding up their end of the bargain.
My dear husband,
This woman took the words out of my mouth and the thoughts out of my heart.
"I am bone of your bone,
flesh of your flesh,
Made up of your rib, Adam!
And once we meet,
like electrons I will be bound to your nucleus,
completely indivisible atom.”
We are called to care for the widow and orphan. We are called to be peacemakers. We are called to be reconcilers. We are called to love without condition, without a hint of buts or ifs. We are called to take care of ourselves. We are called to provide for those in need and look after the least of these.Rebekah Richardson
Love has found you. It’s not your actions, good or bad, that He loves, it’s just you. He likes your style, He loves your personality. He adores you, and you are a treasure to him. Pity those poor souls who can’t see the amazing things that God sees in you.Unka Glen (unkaglen.tumblr.com)
