On Sunday mornings I get up, shower, put on my make up and put on my best clothes. After all I want to go to Church looking my best. Monday morning until Saturday nights however I can be found in sweat pants and t-shirts unless I am going off somewhere. And we won’t even talk about my hair that is often times tied in a sloppy bun.
Though there is nothing wrong with us ladies wearing our comfy clothes it does kinda beg to question how our husbands feel about this. I remember when my husband and I were dating I always took careful care to pick out cute outfits, my makeup was done and my hair was fixed. After we got married I was the same way although I would pull out the comfy clothes sometimes. After kids however I started to live in the comfy clothes.
Now my husband is not the type of man to complain about this. In fact he to loves his comfy clothes. Yet I know he likes variety. I know that he finds me attractive no matter what I wear but I also know that he notices if I take time to put a little extra attention in what I am wearing. Which leads to question who am I trying to impress when I dress up more for the outside world then I do for my own husband. After all the only person of this world that I need to be pleasing to is my husband.
The same can hold true with our attitudes. A lot of times I have found that I am nice to people I barely know than to my own husband. Why is that? Should not our husbands get the best of us? Should not I care more about being pleasing to him? Who am I trying to please. It is so easy to forget that our husbands are watching how we are treating others and then comparing it to how we are treating him. Don’t get me wrong I treat my husband well. But I have found that I find it easier to tell him no to simple requests than I do with telling other people no.
I once read that who we are at home is who we really are. If we are treating those in our home harshly then it stands to reason that we are kind of a harsh person. When we fix our selves up and walk out the door what are we trying to prove? That we are well put together women.What about if we focused the same amount of time worrying about what our husbands think about us as we do the rest of the world? I bet we would have a lot of happy marriages.
Ladies we need to be giving our husbands our best. They deserve it. They should be the only one that we feel the need to impress. Today try dolling yourself up for no reason at all. Be a bit nicer and kinder to your husband. Make an effort to let him know that he is the only one you are trying to impress. After all when we make these efforts in our marriage not only is is beneficial to our husbands it is also pleasing to God.
