Day 506 ~ Right Place, at the Right Time (XIX)

10  "My beloved us radiant and ruddy, outstanding among ten thousand.  11His head is purest gold;  his hair is wavy and black as raven. 12His eyes are like doves by the water streams, washed in milk, mounted like jewels. 
13His cheeks are like beds of spice y
ielding perfume.  
His lips are like lilies 
dripping with myrrh. 
14His arms are rods of gold 
 set with topaz. 
His body is like polished ivory 
 decorated with lapis lazuli. 
15His legs are pillars of marble s
et on bases of pure gold. 
His appearance is like Lebanon,
 choice as its cedars. 

  1. 16His mouth is sweetness itself; 
 he is altogether lovely. 
This is my beloved, this is my friend, 
 daughters of Jerusalem.
" (Song of Solomon 5:10-16) 
  • You can't say anything negative about your husband . . . to your husband . . . or to anyone else, about your husband.
  • Say something that you admire or appreciate about your husband . . . to your husband . . . and to someone else, about your husband!
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?)
Day 19 ! . . .    
I'm going to keep this simple and not let it get too wordy.  

All that and then some!  That's for sure. 

Funny... have you ever wondered what it would have been like if you would have met your loved one years before you did?

Honestly... if my husband and I would have met in high school I really don't think we would have made a connection.  Or would have we?

My husband back in the day was in a band and very much a rocker.  Don't get me wrong... he wasn't a crazy rocker or anything... he just loved playing music.

And I at the time was very much into Prince, Madonna and anything else that you could dance too... including the "Madonna-look-a-like" wardrobe!  Yes!  The big hair, shoulder pads or lack there of, plenty of bracelets and let us not forget all the neon back in the 80s!!

I think we met when we were suppose to meet... wink, wink.  Any other time would have been less than perfect.

[here's to you finding your... ]


I am second..
... for a, l & c.  You are my sunshine(s).
