Walking Too Fast to Talk - #6869
If you're married or if you're in love, the woman you love needs time to be heard. When a woman isn't heard, she starts to talk louder, and longer, and more often. And she nags because she's not been heard. That time with her needs to be a deliberate choice you make, a sacrificial choice, "I'm all yours, Honey, and I'm yours for a while." That kind of love will create a home that is a caring place, safe place for the man who lives there.

She needs your attention; you promised it to her. You promised she would be first.
What Your Wife Can't Get Enough Of - #6439
We can be delivered from that macho frustration that says, "I've got to meet all my wife's needs" and then run from the ones that we can't meet. Together, often, go to your knees and seek your Father for the things that you need. If you're a husband, let your wife live in the secure knowledge that you speak her name often in the Throne Room of Almighty God. She's hungry for your prayer on her behalf, and she can't get enough of it.
The Rest of The Story - #6432
Think about that person you care about, or that person who's hard to care about. You can focus on what they're putting you through, or what they're going through. And if you'll get the rest of the story, you'll be just like Jesus.
