10 Day Challenge – Day 7
Kate says . . .
Buy her something! Yup, just for no reason. You know what your wife likes. Does she love getting flowers, candy, a new piece of clothing or a book? Perhaps it is a new CD or DVD? What does your wife love that she just won’t get for herself? What does she enjoy doing with her few minutes of free time?
I’m Thinking Of You
Take an opportunity today to give her a gift and to treat her a bit. This does not have to be an expensive purchase by any means. A gift is something that says, “I’m thinking about you”, and “I know what you enjoy”. While it is not practical to do these kinds of things on a regular basis, it is a good thing to do here and there. Every wife likes a gift that says you were thinking of her when you weren’t together!
We know that you might feel obligated to give your wife a gift later this week on Valentines day! That’s great, but a wow surprise gift now and then is another great way to say I love you! If you already planned a big gift for Thursday, think about how to give her a free gift or inexpensive one as an extra surprise!
Skip the Lingerie
If a new piece of lingerie is the first thing that came to your mind, I am not surprised 😉 I would say, go for it . . . but let’s be honest guys, lingerie is NOT really a gift for her, is it? So if you decide to purchase something that will look incredibly sexy on your wife, I would encourage you to also find something that is just for her.
Washing in the Word:
To give you the opportunity to grow in all areas of intimacy during the 10 Day Challenge, take time to read these “Washing in the Word” moments together.
Proverbs 31: 10-31
Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies.
Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life.
She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.
She finds wool and flax and busily spins it.
She is like a merchant’s ship, bringing her food from afar.
She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household and plan the day’s work for her servant girls.
She goes to inspect a field and buys it; with her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She is energetic and strong, a hard worker.
She makes sure her dealings are profitable; her lamp burns late into the night.
Her hands are busy spinning thread, her fingers twisting fiber.
She extends a helping hand to the poor and opens her arms to the needy.
She has no fear of winter for her household, for everyone has warm clothes.
She makes her own bedspreads. She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns.
Her husband is well known at the city gates, where he sits with the other civic leaders.
She makes belted linen garments and sashes to sell to the merchants.
She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.
When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness.
She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness.
Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her:
“There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!”
Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.
Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise. (NLT)
