How I Love My Husband

On a scale from 1 to 10, how perfect do you think your husband is?

Mine?  I can't rate my husband on a scale because he's more than perfect.  

How is he more than perfect?  

Well, what qualities in a man do you think it would take to make the perfect man?

I can list several, but God has a better and more complete list than I do and God has given my husband to me, therefore, he is more perfect than I can humanly conceive.  

One of the greatest things that makes him SO perfect for me is that he isn't perfect, which goes hand in hand with the fact that I am FAR from perfect, so..... that makes him perfect for me!

Yes, he has humanly faults, BUT, I can name my faults in a greater number than I can his.  Does that keep me from getting frustrated at times?  Sadly, no.  Should I complain about my husband's faults?



No matter what you hear from other women about their husbands ....

To speak bad about your husband to anyone, ever, is to tear down your own home.  Not to mention the scripture that speaks of whoever cast the first stone....  I have no room whatsoever to even be frustrated with my husband.  

He loves me with his whole heart and I never believed that to be humanly possible.

Me, with all my faults.  

Does he point them out to me?



He loves me, encourages me, listens to me, prays for me and that makes him perfect.


I strive every day to remember this verse and to be this woman:

One thing that took me years to understand and truly grasp in our temporary society is this:

My marriage is THE MOST important thing to me in my life.

And here are a few of the ways I treasure it:

And never forget ...

Do you want your daughter/s to be a good wife?  I do.  

Do you want your son/s to know what a good wife looks like so that they can find one?  I do.

So what do I have to do? 

Be one.


By God's grace and lots of prayer.

This is the one detail that has gotten me to where I am today and why I will be even better tomorrow...
