Day Nineteen:30 day husband/partner encouragement challenge

Filed under: 30 day husband/partner encouragement challenge — by my3boysandi @ 7:46 am

Read this description of a wife’s description of her beloved – Song of Solomon 5:10-16

Criticism leaves scars; but encouragement can bring healing. Remember that today as

you focus on your “30-Day Encouragement Challenge.”

Almost nothing is as devastating to a man as the belief that his wife finds him repulsive.

Sadly, many women unwisely criticize their husbands’ bodies.

Have you ever considered how wonderfully God designed men and women? No matter

how a man looks – by the standards of the world – a loving God designed them all, and

they are all “beautiful” in His sight. Encourage your husband today by praising his

uniqueness.

As you look over your husband’s body, from the tip of his toes to his bald or bushy head,

thank God that your husband is “wonderfully made,” then admire your husband verbally.

(Strong arms? Hairy chest? Firm hands? Big feet? Rugged chin? Wide shoulders?

Compassionate eyes? Broad smile?)

With Mr Wonderful being diabetic and a celiac people including one of his sisters picks on him as he is underweight. We hate this. Its not like he doesnt eat, he does but his body doesnt allow him to put on weight. I have often told him its ones character that makes a person special not what they look like on the outside. Mr Wonderful is handsome to me because he has a loving loyal heart. If I am to look at only the surface level for a minute however I have told him that I think he reminds me of John Denver when he wears his glasses. He thinks thats weird but I have always thought that John Denver as nice looking and a country boy at heart. Mr Wonderful was brought up on a farm for most of his younger life and he is kinda of a country boy – kind loyal and caring. He is cuddly too. I love being held by him. I look forward each morning to our morning hug. Its warm and I feel safe and secure being held by him. I love it when he smiles. They say beauty is within the eye of the beholder and I think Mr Wonderful is wonderful 🙂
