My Husband Rocks

My Husband Rocks this week like every other. Like I mentioned before, I just finished reading the book Captivating, AMAZING book! Very eye opening, helpful, encouraging, healing...I really could go on. At the same time, my husband was reading Wild at Heart which is written by the same guy, except Captivating is co-written with his wife. We learned a LOT. I don't think very many people could have sat down and chatted with us in the last month without this book coming up! We were changed!

Last night I was having an emotional night, like so many of my nights have been lately unfortunately. My husband used his strength to comfort me, holding me close as I cried. Praying over that I would find a purpose for the day, coming against the enemy, and he just spoke life into my weary soul.

He never ceases to amaze me, he is constantly growing and becoming that man of God he was made to be. He rocks for putting up with me! =]
I didn't realize this week we are supposed to also add a generous wife tip, "it can be on any subject - anything that you do or would like to do more often to make your husband feel loved and respected!"...I always like to text him poetic things that show my love, or even goofy things, today's was: "I love you more than Cheez Its love cheese...the really BIG ones!" I also like to pick up cards at the store and then randomly leave them places for him, last night I left one in the bathroom for him, thanking him for showing me his strength, which helped me find rest, which allowed my beauty to be seen. He said it meant a lot to him. Encouraging my husband as often as I can is something I find joy in, letting him know I'm thankful for all of his hardwork, I think means more to him then I really will ever understand, but I'm glad I can help! because after all that was what I was made for!

That's one of the "issues" my hubby and I deal with....comforting me when I'm crying.......you are so lucky to have an amazing guy that will just hold you when you need to be held.
