Wives are a blessing….. if you let them.

Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.        1Peter 3:7

I am writing about marriage during our veterans day celebration because during my military career it was my spouse that truly served our country.  While I was deployed it  was her that stayed and “left the light on” juggling life while sending prayers up for me and my shipmates during my Naval career.   She is a true veteran in my book. Teresa, I truly honor you…….

Wives are a blessing.  They are awesome right?! I mean they married us- so yes , they are awesome. Your spouse can be a blessing no matter how she may annoy you, or drive you up the wall. In fact some are deserving sainthood for putting up with us, lol. In all seriousness, our wives are a blessing.  That is how God had designed them. The master creator looked upon this lump of clay and had in mind that he needed a helper suitable. That is why our wives were created to spend our lives with, share our dreams and passions, and help us build up our children to nurture and prepare them for the world.  They are a blessing, if we allow them to be.

My Wife is very smart. she has a keen sense of direction. I on the other hand, do not. She is very detailed and I try  to be.  She is very good at writing while I could use some help with grammar and punctuation.  Her Child care business is top-notch.  She manages her business and provides the best in early education. it shows in the children she cares for.  I could only dream of her business savvy. It is my understanding that a Power couple  is a couple who compliments each other in a way that produces.  They cover the others weakness and propels the others strengths. they shine brightly together even when the other may not be in the spotlight.  They can challenge each other to greatness or tear each other down by knowing the feelings to trigger. I do not know you or your relationship with your wife.  What I do believe is that your wife can be a blessing to you if you as a man could open up your heart like you did when you were  pursuing her.

I can put more thought into a sermon series, or a songwriting or even work, than I do my spouse.  if you’re like me?  God is letting you know that is not how its supposed to be that’s not how God designed it.  Peter writes some words that he may have lived out.  rediscover your bride all over again. there is some more in the verse above we will just start being grateful not just for them but to them.
