31 Days of Femininity: A true wife is...



A true wife makes a man's life nobler, stronger, grander, by the omnipotence of her love "turning all the forces of manhood upward and heavenward."

While she clings to him in holy confidence and loving dependence she brings out in him whatever is noblest and richest in his being.

She inspires him with courage and earnestness.

She beautifies his life.

She softens whatever is rude and harsh in his habits or his spirit.

She clothes him with the gentler graces of refined and cultured manhood.

While she yields to him and never disregards his lightest wish, she is really his queen, ruling his whole life and leading him onward and upward in every proper path.

Taken from the book The Family, by J.R.Miller

Lisa,

I'm so glad you like it! I have been challenged in areas to work on myself as I write these posts, so it has been good for me to do this!
