I am a "Courted" Woman
He courts me when he and I are in bed, each reading our own books and he stops to read me a passage that has made him laugh, touched him or caused him to really think hard and he wants me to share in this discovery of his. He courts me every time he cups one of our children's faces in his hands to tell them he loves them. He courts me every time he comes home from a LONG day at work and finds me washing dishes with my cracked and bleeding hands and moves me aside to finish the job for me. He courts me every time he comes home and cheerfully asks what can he do for me. He courts me when he listens to me tell a story...for the second time or third time. He courts me every time he puts up with my nervous and annoying habits and does so with love and gentleness. He courts me every time he COMES home! There is much in this world to entice a man away from his wife but my husband has committed himself before God to remain true and faithful to the wife of his youth. All this and more make me want to marry him all over again...everyday. If that isn't courting then I don't know what is.
