"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!
Thank you for this honest post. I agree, I struggle with the same thing and you put it so beautifully into words...and therefore make it easier for me to put it into practice! Hal
