Ephesians 5:33b: And the wife should respect her husband.
Respect is his primary need, his deepest desire.

Word to the Wives and Welcome Wednesday

Word to the Wives ~ ~ Your husband's ability to put on the full armor of God and to stand, protecting you both, against the assault of the devil is nothing to be taken for granted.  Your gentle word of encouragementwill strengthen his feeble knees. 
Armor card

"Armor" a greeting card from Your Husband's Deepest Desire
(click on the card to read the message inside)

Each card that I offer for sale at Your Husband's Deepest Desire comes with a brief "Word to the Wives" to encourage you, the wife, in your efforts to share messages of respect with your husband.  Today's Word to the Wives and the card were both inspired by the scripture found in Ephesians 6:13.  

It was not until I watched the movie "Fireproof" and saw the suits that firemen wore to face and fight the flames that I began to liken that scripture to my marriage.  If you, like me, have never been able to picture a suit of armor in modern day context or to picture a mortal man prepared "to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one" take a good look at the front of this card.  


Welcome Wednesday ~ ~  I'm also pleased to be taking part, for the 2nd week, in the blog hop sponsored by "Take It From Me".  I comment and follow all participants - even if it takes me a few days.
