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

Irresistible

Admiration shone from her eyes

ย blinding him to his own imperfections

so that he was empowered to climb

the mountain of their love

and shout from the summit

ย 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.
