Spousal Compliment

An excellent wife is the crown of her husband,

but she who brings shame is like rottenness in his bones.  

Proverbs 12:4

I thought that we could use something humorous this week.  I don’t know about you, but I’m just plain tired!  So, I wanted to do a blogpost that shared a message in a way that makes you smile, without having to think too hard.


Men Are Just Happier People –

What do you expect from such simple creatures?

Your last name stays put.

The garage is all yours.

Wedding plans take care of themselves.

Chocolate is just another snack.

You can be President.

You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park.

You can wear NO shirt to a water park.

Car mechanics tell you the truth.

The world is your urinal.

You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky.

You don’t have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt.

Same work, more pay.

Wrinkles add character.

Wedding dress $5000. Tux rental-$100.

People never stare at your chest when you’re talking to them.

New shoes don’t cut, blister, or mangle your feet.

One mood all the time.

Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat.

You know stuff about tanks.

A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase.

You can open all your own jars.

You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness.

If someone forgets to invite you,

He or she can still be your friend.

Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack.

Three pairs of shoes are more than enough.

You almost never have strap problems in public.

You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes.

Everything on your face stays its original color.

The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades.

You only have to shave your face and neck.

You can play with toys all your life.

One wallet and one pair of shoes — one color for all seasons.

You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look.

You can ‘do’ your nails with a pocket knife.

You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache.

You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives…

On December 24 in 25 minutes.

No wonder men are happier.

My point is this:  Our husbands are different!  Even in the area of grief and loss. Try to give them a little grace. It can be very difficult, sometimes.  He wants one thing, and you want another,
simply because he cannot manage to see it with the same perspective that you do.  Remember, God created us to complement each other, not duplicate each other.  Don’t pray for God to make him into the husband that you want him to be.  Instead, pray that God will make him into the husband the He wants him to be. (You might change your mind later!)  The only person that you can change is yourself.  Stop praying for a “new spouse.”  Try being a new spouse.  You might be surprised with the results.

However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.  Ephesians 5:33
