I am reflecting on the past today. There are many stunning examples of virtuous women in the history of the United States of America. Yesterday, many paid tribute to men and women of valor who have fought for our countries freedom. I am thrilled that so many take time out to consider the fight and cost that it has, and continues to, require to allow us to live in a free country. More specifically, in a country where we are able to worship God openly - may none of us take that for granted and all who believe actively exercise this right and freedom...
Today, my mind and heart are drawn to those women who supported their men. Who planted victory gardens, wrote (actual) letters faithfully, and intentionally encouraged their spouses to press on; all the while taking care of matters at home and providing for their children. So many of us could stand to pause here for a moment and consider the amount of time and energy that these women poured into making sure their husbands knew that they were supported, loved, prayed for and making an eternal difference in the world. I am, in no way, saying that they were all perfect or never failed to do so; just that the efforts of their day were noteworthy.
Does my own husband know? Have I gone out of my way to show him that he is supported, loved, prayed for and making an eternal difference in the world?
Because he is.
Today I am just feeling a bit convicted that I need to place a little more energy into conveying those things to him in ways that he can receive and understand. The stunning reflections of those who have gone before me are impressed upon my mind.
I guess maybe this has turned into a bit of a "Marital Moment" as well as a "Titus 2." It's just what God is impressing upon my heart today. What has He brought to mind to you today?
