The Irresistible Truth of How to Win Your Man (and keep him)

Irresistible

Admiration shone from her eyes

 blinding him to his own imperfections

so that he was empowered to climb

the mountain of their love

and shout from the summit

 his devotion to the one

who believed

in him.

Over the years I’ve listened to a lot of Christian radio broadcasts

about family life and marriage.

When I hear a quote that especially speaks to me,

I like to write it down on a piece of paper and memorize it.

~

One day I wrote down three magic words: admire, appreciate, and accept.

~

I’ve memorized these words.

I needed to.

I wanted to gift these verbs to my husband

through my actions.

Years ago we hit a dry spell in our marriage

while our lives were busy parenting 3 children 5 yrs and under.

Let’s face it–nobody marries someone else unless they see

some reasonable semblance of these three magical words.

acceptance ~ admiration ~ appreciation

And after they’re married these actions are more important than ever

(yes, this applies to both partners).

~

Spouses may stray or be tempted to stray if these are missing at home

(no it’s not a valid excuse for emotional or physical adultery).

~

There’s nothing more irresistible to a man

than a woman who’s in love with him.

It’s my job to love and respect Billy;

it’s God’s job to make him good.

Now it’s your turn to tell me about a great marriage book,

marriage blog or marriage quote.

I love romantic happy endings.

A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown,

but a disgraceful wife is like decay to his bones.

~

Husbands, love your wives

and do not be harsh with them.

Colossians 3:19
