the other woman

This is scary. It's something us ladies do not want to talk about. The rug gets plenty of dust from this subject as we keep sweeping under and under.....

But it's real gals. It stares our husbands, and yes us, in the face every day. They are out there. The innocent ones and the not so much ones.

You know who they are. You have seen them, and might have even dealt with them. A wink, a smile, maybe even directly in front of you as they zoom in on your man. Forget the ring. Forget the kids. All they see is HIM.

You might even know some by name. This might be hitting to close to home. Like "smashing in the windows of your heart" home.

I'm not saying that you will be able to stop it from happening. Life unfortunately has a way of doing it's own thing. So do the people that live on this earth. But at least we can fight this fight the best we can and hopefully keep our man on the right side of the canyon- with us....

*DON'T NAG! Plain and simple, men hate it and hate what it turns us wives into!
*DON'T have a bud. Male best friends. I'm not being old fashioned here, just honest. If you share your feelings and thoughts with that co-worker, church member, dude at the checkout might find yourself bonding to the wrong fellow, and that just opens the door for your man to do the same with her...

*DO PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!! Our men need it every day, throughout the day! Pray for their eyes and their minds, and that the Lord would keep those women away!
*DO show respect. You can't expect to tear away at your man's character and expect him to want to stick around. If you have a bone to pick with him, go about it the right way.
*DO flirt. Attack him in the kitchen. Leave love notes in his lunch. Call or text with sexy suggestions. Keep his pilot light lit. The more you keep him satisfied with the flesh, the less likely that flesh will radar in on someone else....and against you.

  1. Love this post. Sorry I havne't been on for a while. I totally agree. I wanted to add that even a wonderful wife can find herself with an adulterous spouse and that doesn't belittle who she is. Everyone is capable of committing any sin, even the most wonderful of husbands. But it is important to never drop our guard as satan is waiting to destroy our families and men are very sexual creatures. And sometimes we think we women aren't to be, however we see differently in Song of Songs. :) Pursue your husbands desires, otherwise there is almost certainly someone else out there who will.
