things i love about my husband {28} growing together

28 days of intentionally honoring my spouse

This past month has been so fun, pulling out little tidbits about my husband– making sure that I tell him, each day, something that I love.

As I prepared for my last post in this series, I thought of half a dozen things I could write. I ended up erasing them all. They were cute, little stories from while we were dating or first married, but they didn’t really portray what I wanted to say. But I think I have it now…

In the movie McLintock! (a hilarious but definitely politically incorrect John Wayne movie) G.W. is explaining to his daughter why he’s not leaving his vast fortune to her but rather, a small homestead. “It’s not much,” he says, “but it’s more than we had, your mother and I.” Then he says the line that I quote so often, “There’s just something that happens between a man and a woman, with all that growing together.”

When I look back over the years we’ve been married, I love that my husband has “grown” with me. We’ve both changed.  I’m not the same that I was then and he is different as well. But we’ve been together through the changes. The good and the bad ones. 

He’s stuck with me and he’s challenged me to stick with him.  And, well, there’s just something that happens between a man and woman with all that growing together. 


The Challenge:

Think about the changes that have taken place since your wedding day. Take a minute to thank your spouse for sticking with you- even when the changes weren’t fun.


p.s. I’m also over at Tyler Braun’s place (author of Why Holiness Matters, of which the Kindle version is totally on sale right now for only $1.99) sharing about finding and being a mentor. It’s a fun story, actually. You should come read it. 🙂  just click here.

  1. I’m sad this is finishing, but I’m glad you’re still blogging!
    PS… McClintock is one of my hubby’s movies. He pulls it out from time to time and watches it. I always laugh at how “politically incorrect” it is, too! 😉


  2. This has been a great series, Natasha. Thank you for sharing your heart and your lives.

    I, too, am so grateful for the changes God has wrought in my husband and I together over these past 12+ years. So thankful He never gives up on us, and that my husband has never given up on me.
