Day 5:  Blessing For The Wife 

Welcome back to my 5 Days of Blessings For The Family Series!  Today is Day 5 and it's all about the Wife.  Yes, it's our turn ladies!  We are the one who God entrusts to build our home.  We are building our lovely home upon the rock of Christ.  That includes our marriage.   First, we are a wife to our husband, then a mother to our children.  Sometimes we can get that all out of order.   With so much going on, our conflicting schedules or just kids running around the house . . . you get the picture.

By the way, I found this sweet pic from my favorite musical, "Fiddler on the Roof".  During this scene, the family has just watched their Mother light the candles to usher in the Sabbath or Shabbat.  Soon, the song of the Blessing will be sung by both the wife and husband.  I love how the children look upon their Mother with love, honor and admiration.  They are looking to her for direction, guidance and wisdom.  They are ready to receive their blessing, yet they in turn bless her, their Mom. 

Now, notice how the husband looks upon his wife in this scene.  He stands across from her.  You can see the honor he has for her in his eyes.  Most of all, you can see his love for her.  Clearly, the week has gone by and maybe he hadn't noticed her.  Until this moment, he is reminded of how beautiful she is to him.  He sees her for the lovely wife he has come to deeply love.  Through good times and bad.  God has blessed him with a virtuous wife.  

Isn't it wonderful when our husbands love us deeply?  It may seem that a husband can go through their busy days and weeks only to forget to look deeply into the eyes of their wife.  Marriage is hard work.  It takes sacrifice, perseverance, forgiveness and love.  It is a blessing for the husband to pray and bless his wife. Most importantly it is a gift of love. The Bible is clear: 


Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.  In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.  Ephesians 5:25-28

So today the blessing for the wife is adapted from Proverbs 31:10-31 and also from John D Garrr's book entitled, The Book of Blessings, Ancient Biblical Blessings for Every Occasion.  You can also find these and many other blessings in this book entitled, Bless You by John D. Garr. 
When your husband blesses you with these words, it will affirm his love for you and his love for Jesus.  I definitely feel my husband's love after these beautiful words are affirmed over me.  Be blessed Daughter of the King! 

                                 
                                     

Blessing

What a rare find is a capable wife!  
Your worth is far beyond that of rubies. 
As your husband I can put my confidence in you and I lack no good thing.  
You are good to me, never bad, all the days of your life. . . 
You give generously to the poor; your hands are stretched out to the needy. . . 
As your husband I am prominent in the gates, as I sit among the elders of the land. . .
You look to the future cheerfully.  
Your mouth is full of wisdom, your tongue with kindly teaching.  
You oversee the activities of your household and never eat the bread of idleness.  
Your children declare you happy. 
As your husband I praise you, "Many women have done well, but you surpass them all.
It is for your fear of the Lord that a woman is to be praised.  
I Extol you for the fruit of your hand, and let your works praise you in the gates. 
In finding you, my wife, I have found happiness, and I have won the favor of the Lord.
