The Way He Looks at Me | The Struggle was Real

There is nothing like having someone say I could tell she was your honey by the way you looked at her all night”!

………………………….

That’s what someone said to my hubby this past weekend, while at a wedding celebration. It was like music to my ears! I felt so warm and yummy inside… but can you believe I didn’t always like/appreciate the way he looked at me? Crazy, right? I know, but it’s oh so true! 

A short while ago, whenever I’d catch my hubby looking at me, I’d often respond by asking “what’s wrong? Is it my hair/makeup? What are you looking at?” This list goes on and on, with all the negative things I’d come up with. To my surprise… my hubby wouldn’t take the bait. He’d look at me and say, “I like what I see.

You see, when you struggle with self-esteem,  you often take another’s gaze as an implication of imperfection, rather than admiration.   For me, I kept thinking “can someone really just ‘like’ what they see when they look at me”? The struggle was too real

But there’s this thing called LOVE! And when you begin to discover how to truly love yourself,  you don’t mind when others join in on the celebration! #it’saword

It’s been a long journey to get to this place (so many stories), but I am so thankful to be here. I love the woman I am becoming… and… I, too, like what I see when I look at me! I love myself, and I know just how wonderfully The Master made me! I am beautifully snatched for His glory! ( #snatchedforHisglory … Just wait on it!)

So now, when my hubby looks at me, I can appreciate every moment of his admiration and affection! No negative thoughts; although, he will let me know if I have chip crumbs on my chin! I can now appreciate his gaze, and smile in return! My hubby loves me, and to know that he only has eyes for me is beyond wonderful.

Yes, I’m flawed. But more importantly,

I’m loved and I am his honey ❤

………………………………………………………………………………

 How many years have you been married, and what has being married taught you?

November will be 31 years.  That marriage is a job you never get time off, sick leave or a vacation.   Enjoy the wedding day because every day after that is work.  What you put in your marriage is what you will get out of it.  Love covers a multitude of sin! After 10yrs of me committing adultery and this man still loves me as Christ love the church… I drop the mic😙

What are 3 key ingredients that have helped you build a healthy marriage?

Love, respect and just being who God created me to be.  Never lose yourself for a man.  Be honest don’t lie to yourself or that man everything you do in the dark comes to the light remember that.  Make sure you’re IN love with him and you don’t just love him like you love your family and best friend.  When you’re IN love you can survive any storm.

What word of advice/wisdom do you have for the young wife?

Have lots of sex. This releases stress, unless your husband is crazy.   Stop trying to live as if you’re still single, hanging out ALL the time with your old single friends.  If you don’t have  kids make sure your husband is uno #1. He should not have to be jealous for your time.  You’re on the phone all day but can’t have a decent conversation other than “how was your day”… (Red flag). Your husband pays more attention than you think.

What about the singles? What word of advice can you share to help the single women, who desires to be married?

Like and love who you are first you can’t give away what you don’t have.  Know “why” you want to be married because with God age ain’t nothing but a number.  Let him find you PLEASE!!!  Learn to be okay if God says marriage is not for you.

Anything else/advice/wisdom you feel led to share?

All the originals are taken, don’t be a copy cat.  Stop looking at the grass on the other side, it needs to be worked on too.  Seek God in all you do, don’t let Him be your last resource.  When HE speaks, listen. I drop the mic😙
