Day 10- 30 Day Husband Encouragement Challenge

Behold, you are handsome, my beloved! Yes, pleasant!" (Song of Solomon 1:16a)
We all crave appreciation. We want to know that we are valued and loved. Early love letters probably reflected your admiration of your husband, but if you're not careful, your spouse will forget why you were drawn to him. If you still have any of your old love letters, re-read them for clues to deepen your current level of appreciation for your spouse.
When we spend time criticizing our husbands, we lose time that could be spent admiring them. As you consider various ways to encourage your husband, ask, "How can I admire him?"
Does your husband know that you think he is attractive? What was one of the characteristics in your husband that first drew you to him? Was it a physical characteristic, or something else?
Was it his gentle, compassionate eyes? Kindness or concern for others? An easy-going confidence? A steadiness that comes from trusting in the Lord? Strength of character in a culture that lacks integrity? Do you see at least a glimpse of that characteristic in him today? Whatever it is, tell him!:The characteristics that first attracted me to Eddie were his beautiful smile, and his laugh. Also, his kind and gentle heart. These characteristics have only grown stronger through the years, God blessed me with one of the most compassionate men in the entire world.
