When you first start dating someone, different things might float your boat or make you tingle (so to speak). You might like the way he looks, because of course we want a fine man! You might like the way he smells or even kissing your neck (or that spot) could send you to the moon. When you are dating, him just walking in the room with his swagger (<– is this still a trendy word?), makes you look into your future and see wedding bells. turn me on
Ooooh how things change after you say, “I do!”
I have been married for 11 years, and with so many ups and downs of marriage, sometimes he can walk into the room and I don’t even notice. And yes, my husband is still very attractive and wears nice cologne, but if we can’t pay a bill, the last thing I am thinking about is his face! Over these 11 years of marriage, 3 kids and growing as woman, certain things about my husband give me the “turn up” feeling inside. What I love is, my husband doesn’t even know, because he doesn’t do these things on purpose. These are qualities that he already has and when he shows me these things, it could be on at any time! Well, not anytime …. we have 3 kids!! Hmph!
I met my husband at church. He worshiped before we were married and that hasn't changed 11 years later. It's nothing for me to look over and see my husband praising God, saying "Thank You Jesus" for the smallest things throughout the day, or just giving God glory with his lifestyle. When I see him praising God, it makes me more grateful for him. A man who loves the Lord and isn't afraid to express that with raised hands, singing, and prayer is worth his weight in Gold.
