Following him as he pursues Him

Photo Albums at WiddlyTinks.com


Call me a girl who's living in a fairy tale and I'll tell you that this is reality. Reality is that I have this unquenchable desire for my husband and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I must start off by saying, we are not perfect. Far from it. But there's a love so deep. This love continues to be fueled by the passion we have for God.
 
I know my fore-mothers are disappointed in my choice of living a "subservient" lifestyle, as they call it. I call it freedom. Freedom to walk in my calling and live my life as a fascinating woman. Not only am I a fascinating woman, as my husband calls me, but I'm fascinated. Fascinated by a man who strong enough to be a man. Yet gentle enough to understand me, a woman. A man who's confident enough in who he is as man by encouraging me to be a woman.
 
As a woman, God places such a high value on me. God said it wasn't good for my husband to be alone. He values me, a woman, so much that He created me to be a helpmeet to my husband. Now if being a helper makes a woman subservient in the eyes of some, so be it. Although, I must confess.....I love being a helpmeet to my husband.
I love waking up in the morning thinking of ways I can help my husband's day go better.

Since I'm confessing stuff, I must confess that I pick up my husbands dirty clothes off the floor. I know he's a big boy, but I love to take a whiff of his shirts after a hard days work. He smells so manly.
I must confess that I plan my meals around the foods he likes. There's no better sound in the world to me than my man grunting while eating a delicious meal I've prepared.
I must confess that my body doesn't belong to me and I've freely given it to him. With a smile on my face too. Oh how I love reaping the benefits. Freely give. Freely you shall receive.
 
How my heart aches for women who have good husbands, but chose to believe the lies by our fore-mothers. Our fore-mothers told us to follow no man. There are numerous Godly men who are just waiting for there wives to trust them. I encourage my sisters to follow them as they pursue God.

Dear One,
This post is refreshing for me to read.

So glad I visited with you today and you have shared a beautiful

These very words could have been penned by me!
Every aspect! You know...
I'm not understood from "my side". But you know, I'm pleasing to God in serving my husband.

I like your blog tweak! I had JUST put up a pic of my hubby and I on my blog and wanted to use that same portion of Scripture but it wouldn't fit correctly above the picture.

Press on girl and I'm rejoicing with you in this!

Blessings,
Kela

What you said rebuked me! Do I love my husband? Yes. Do I enjoy serving my husband? Yes. Am I fascinated by and do I enjoy my husband? Uhhh.... Haven't thought about that recently! Today you've encouraged me:
1)to recall the good gift God has given to me in my husband,
2)to communicate to my husband, clearly and frequently, my appreciation for his protection and the many sacrifices he makes for his family AND my enjoyment of his uniqueness, and
3)to thank God for His specific and particular care and wisdom for bringing this man into my life.

Joyfully in Jesus, Mrs. L.
