10 Things you will continually hear


... at the Imperfect Wives.

1. Husbands "always" need a safe place to land. We can't stress this enough. Learn to be this place for them. Give them a reason to want to turn around.

2. When you are wrong in the situation alwaysbe quick to admit it and ask for forgiveness.

3. Never underestimate the power you have in your prayers! You have entered a covenant with God in your marriage. He hears your prayers.

4. Someone once said, "Let consequences do their job." Both sides need to learn from mistakes. Though you may want to pull a "Madea" on your husband, let the Holy Spirit hit him on the head. He will always do a much better job chastising him than you will.

5. When in doubt, always turn to the Bible for answers. Our heart here at The Imperfect Wives is to always point you right back to Jesus in every circumstance.

6. DO NOT RUN! Don't run when things get tough. Instead, dig those cute feet of yours in even deeper, not giving satan a chance at your marriage.

7. Always, always, always guard your heart.The enemy is always looking for a weak spot to enter in.

8. Be willing to open your heart to others in the same situation you are in. God wants to use you right where you are and both marriages will be blessed for this.

9. Always keep the lines of communication open between you and husband.

10. Don't Give Up! The Holy Spirit is always at work in your prayers. Though your circumstances may indicate otherwise, you never know when God is about to turn your husband's heart around. Amen!
Doing these 10 things will cultivate the same beauty and fragrance in your marriage the pink roses represent!

We love you guys and are praying for each of your marriages,

Cherie

Lovely thoughts there Cherie from a male point of view. :)
As a husband of 30 years to the same wife I would like to add that one thing that has contributed greatly to your marriage staying strong has been the fact that my wife always respects me - both as a man and as a husband. Her words and attitudes display that respect to me. I'd try and squeeze this in somewhere near the top of your top 10 things to hear.
The respect my wife shows me has the fruit of making it so easy to love her in return. I love her to bits! :)

Inannlife: It's always great to hear from a husbands point of view on the things we share. Your feedback is so needed and appreciated. Respect is one of the things we talk about most at the Imperfect Wives. I should have listed it and not sure why I didn't!! Thanks for the prompting!

Thank you Nicole for sharing our site!! We love you girl!
