been around for a long time, and you're used to him. He is the father of
your chilren. But are you in love with him? How long has it been since your
heart really squeezed when you looked at him?....Why is it you have
forgotten the things that attracted you to him at first?.....Your husband
needs to be told that you love him, that he is attractive to you. By the
grace of God, I want you to start changing your thought pattern. Tomorrow
morning, get your eyes off the toaster or the baby bottles long enough to
LOOK at him. Don't you see the way his coat fits his shoulders? Look at his
hands. Do you remember when just to look at his strong hands made your heart
lift? Well, LOOK at him and remember. Then loose your tongue and tell him
you love him. Will you ask the Lord to give you a sentimental, romantic,
physical, in-love kind of love for your husband? He will do this.

Feminine Appeal has been a good "coffee break" book for me. Just a little bit every afternoon. I also recommend Carolyn's blog, Girl Talk. She team blogs with her daughters and together, they really know how to uplift a girl like me. I know you'll be refreshed too!
"Isn't it telling that our culture requires training and certification for so many vocations of lesser importance but hands us marriage and motherhood without instruction?"
