The world cannot be lit up unless the towns are lit up. A town cannot be lit up unless the houses are lit up. Houses cannot be lit up unless their lamps are lit up.
Wives-let your light shine before your husband and watch the glory spread.
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:14-16 NIV

“Make a clean break with all cutting, backbiting, profane talk. Be gentle with one another, sensitive. Forgive one another as quickly and thoroughly as God in Christ forgave you.”

Wives often say men never grow up. Our attitude can either encourage that sense of child-like fun or crush and deflate it with shame.
“The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”
Proverbs 12:18 NIV

If you want to marry a man of noble character, focus on being a woman of noble character.
““The LORD bless you, my daughter,” he replied. “This kindness is greater than that which you showed earlier: You have not run after the younger men, whether rich or poor. And now, my daughter, don’t be afraid. I will do for you all you ask. All the people of my town know that you are a woman of noble character.”
Ruth 3:10-11 NIV

Don’t ever stop knocking on heaven’s door and asking for God’s blessing on your marriage.

Love is…patient. One of our earliest fights taught us how to resolve conflict starting with the little things. It’s taken many years, but we’ve applied that lesson over and over again.
P.S. I won! 😉
“Now may the God Who gives the power of patient endurance (steadfastness) and Who supplies encouragement, grant you to live in such mutual harmony and such full sympathy with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus,”
Romans 15:5 AMPC
