Appreciate Your Godly Husband

My Vice Principal and 10th grade teacher, Mrs. Jordan, made me fall in love with the arts. I am blessed that my husband, a rugged man who works hard at his job and on our farm, does not mind going to staged performances, orchestras, art museums and galleries, wine tastings, and other cultured events. However, many husbands will not participate in those activities. Never mind, dear ladies, about what you think is their unrefined state. If their heart is for the Lord and they are serving Him through a quiet, obedient life, they are much better off than those who pridefully profess to be cultured. Be humbled and thankful for that, and kiss him hard tonight for being that kind of man!
A man who is eating or lying with his wife or preparing to go to sleep in humility, thankfulness and temperance, is, by Christian standards, in an infinitely higher state than one who is listening to Bach or reading Plato in a state of pride. C. S. Lewis
