Lovely... lovable

"A wise woman doesn't take anything for granted.  She is thankful to be loved and seeks to make herself more lovely."- Debi Pearl

I have been thinking a lot about this quote lately... it is completely convicting!  For me the word lovely is often attributed to physical appearance.  For my heart I prefer to switch in the word lovable.  Sometimes my heart, attitude and actions are so ugly (opposite of lovely or lovable) yet, I still expect Mr. Steady to lavish love on me despite my selfishness, rudeness and over-arching un-lovable attitude.   My un-loveliness causes him to pull back which causes more ugly attitude on my part... Uggh!  I hate that ridiculous cycle.  

I am so thankful to be loved by my man!  He is incredible!  I desire to demonstrate my thankfulness for Mr. Steady's love, to truly appreciate how blessed I am!  I want to be lovely in my attitude, actions and in my heart!  I pray that you can say the same, that the desire of your heart may be to be more lovely and lovable to/ for your man!
