It’s true that when we love our husbands, we love them even in the worst times. We don’t always feel like loving them.
It’s also true that as wives we can nurture our feelings of love towards our husbands. We can guard against the “tunnel vision” of serving him and intentionally focus on tying cords of relationship with him, on appreciating him, and on loving him for who he is.
In particular, when we have a loving, godly (though imperfect!) husband, we can tend to take him for granted and allow our service to (and relationship with!) him to become drudgery.
Marcy – the Thankful Homemaker – recently shared some great thoughts on Romancing Our Husbands:
“Are you in love with your husband? Not, Do you love him? I know you do. He has been around a long time, and you’re used to him.
He is the father of your children. But are you in love with him? How long has it been since your heart really squeezed when you looked at him? . . . ”
