I went to my husbands systematic theology class with him yesterday morning. It was the last class of the term and I've never gone with him to any of his classes before. But, he expressed how much he wanted me to attend one, so I did. I didn't really want to for any reason other than I got to be with him. I was lost the whole time! The professor used huge words and terms that I hadn't the slightest idea about. The classroom was beige with a chalk board on the front wall and NO pictures at all! It was completely un-stimulating. The room was freezing and the chairs were horribly uncomfortable. The class was 3 hours long! I was bored out of my mind, cold, and really tired because we had been up so late the night before. But, I don't regret going. I was glad I went because I know it meant a lot to John. I enjoyed sitting next to him and seeing how he spends his Monday mornings. Showing love requires getting inside our spouses world. That's what I did and even though I was so glad when noon came and class was over, I am really happy I went. Even better, John was thrilled all day that I was there with him.
So an idea formulated. What if we (us married gals ... sorry to exclude all my single friends who are just wonderful too!) gave our 100% in showing love to our husbands? What if we supported, encouraged, and held one another accountable? Even for those of us with fabulous marriages, I bet we'll see it get even better! What if there was a meme for this??? Well, you're in luck because I would love to host a "To Love Their Husbands Tuesdays" I got the phrase from the wonderful roll call of God's expectations of women in Titus 2. His second expectation is that woman are called "to love their husbands..." Titus 2:4
Does this sound like something you would enjoy? Here's the plan - every Tuesday link up here with a post about how you went out of your way to show love to your husband in the past week. We can encourage one another and maybe even give each other some ideas! If you want to join in, or just spread the word - please take this button and post it on your blog - then come back next week to link up!
