What a good wife gets you

What a good wife gets you July 8, 2011

A smile when you step through the door

A hug when you head back out

Mercy when you don’t deserve it

An embrace when you really need it

Someone who will pray for you

Someone who will tell you no

A friend to share the better moments

A partner to ride out the lesser ones

Laughter, affection, home

Warmth, surprise, support

Kind words, wise words, funny words

Hard words, soft words, sweet words

Welcome indulgence

Necessary resistance

Encouragement

Astounding intelligence and aptitude

A capacity for the new, the hard, the challenging

Love, joy, peace

    All I could think of was:

    “A noble wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her & lacks nothing of value. She brings him good & not harm, all the days of her life.” Prov. 31:10-12).

    Today I pray that I am doing just that for my husband – bringing him good.

    Thank you for this challenge today 🙂
