Be His Girlfriend!

Someone I know very well {protecting her privacy} told me about a Bible Study she is attending.  I asked her how it was going.  She loves the women and the study, but for a whole hour she has to listen to these women complaining about their husbands...I use to do that before I knew better...

She is much younger than these women and doesn't feel like she can teach them about loving their husbands and what that looks like.  She should because she is a pro at it!  Her husband adores her and she adores him.  She respects him and he knows it.

My sister wrote a blog post to a young woman {the one in the picture above} who is getting married this weekend.  She mentored her and her fiance.  They are a precious couple.  Here is the advice my sister gave her ~

My prayer for you is that after you become Mrs. A, you will daily remember that you are his friend. But more importantly, you are and always will be his girlfriend! I pray that you will act like his girlfriend! Brag to your friends about him, flirt with him, smile around him, joke with him, hold his hand, stop what you are doing when he walks through the door, or when you walk through the door, (or just any old time) wrap your arms around him, and give him a kiss! {And, enjoy those added benefits of being his wife!} Leave the changing in his life to the Holy Spirit. That's not your responsibility. Yay! You get to be his wife, his friend, his biggest supporter... his girlfriend!

My sister and her husband act like girlfriend and boyfriend.  They have been married a long time.  They embarrass their children, but their children love it! 

Start marriage out right.  Do it God's way.  Take it from an old married lady and her sister...NEVER stop being his girlfriend!

These older women must train the younger women to love their husbands and their children
