H is for Helpmate.......

In Genesis God said that Adam(man) should have a helpmate(Eve).  I take the responsibility of being my husbands helpmate very seriously.  I believe that it is the job of every wife to encourage, uplift and support her husband.  Ladies, we can do this in various ways.  First and foremost is to take care of his physical needs.  What I mean by this is that we should do what we can to make sure our man is feed, rested and stress free. It can be as simple as making sure that there is a loaf of bread in the event he wants to make a sandwich.  Secondly, we need to encourage him to be the man that God has created him to be.  We need to praise him not only in private but in public as well.  I get so frustrated when I hear wives speak ill of there husbands.  It matters not whether is "true" or not.  We as wives should make people think our husbands are the greatest.  If our husbands think we belittle them in public, our "private" words will have no effect on their attitude.  I love my husband and I want to do anything and everything to encourage and uplift him.  NO, he is not perfect but he IS perfect for me. 

What do you do to be the helpmate to your husbands???
