I was struck reading this yesterday...and a little ashamed,too.
Do we wives really understand our beloveds?
I can tend to get so into myself and needs that I forget he even has feelings.
So many times he is so strong that I don't see the need to comfort him.
Yet, when those times of need come, I am and should be his first source of human comfort.
As we have gone this journey of the prodigal, my lover has hurt deep. Really deep.
This takes selflessness to come out of my pain and ask God to help me be his healer.
I am blessed with a man who cherishes and loves me. I am blessed to be his beloved.
Help me, Lord, to love him and hold him close, especially those times he needs physical comfort.
