Growing Gracefully

Let us not take our wives for granted as we grow 'old' in our marriage relationships. Make each day a fresh way in which we relate to our wives in tender love and care. It's not easy so let us ask the Holy Spirit, the Perfect Gentleman, to help us. 

As our wives age into menopause, we have to be more vigilant as hormone levels change and the tendencies for emotional ups and downs are higher. Let us be careful with our words and tone of voice in relating to them.

Pray God's protective covering over them emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually each day.

May the Lord help us to make our marriages strong and a blessing to many even as we grow with grace in our later years.
