Remember when you met the woman you we’re going to spend the rest of your life with? It was awesome, wasn’t it?! You loved her. You loved spending time with her. You loved talking, walking, sharing life . . . sharing everything! And what you did, especially well back then – you made her feel like a woman.
And there’s something that wise husband’s never forget but many others never learn.
She’s a hard worker. She’s faithful. She’s loyal. She’ll meet life’s challenges and demands but, she doesn’t want to be merely a worker bee – cleaning lady – manager – housekeeper – businesswoman – mother – wife . . . She’ll be all those things but, that’s not all she wants to be to you.
Regardless of how busy life became, regardless of how many children you’ve had together, regardless of how tired the demands of everyday work make her, regardless of continuing financial pressures and the stress of the moment,
There’s something she deeply desires above all this. She still wants to feel like a woman. She has never stopped desiring to be desired. And, though most husbands let the tyranny of the urgent in life dictate the quality and quantity of their attention to their wives, ensuring that your wife continues to feel like a woman – the object of your desire is not that difficult and . . . it’s your responsibility.
Question: When was the last time you took your wife out on a date? No agenda? No series of errands ending with a quick bite.? When was the last time you took her out for her . . . just for her . . . because you wanted to be with her and you wanted her to know, down in her soul, you love her and value her company?
When was the last time you handled all the details of an evening and made your wife feel like a woman?
