Love and prayers for the wife - day 18

A good husband makes sure his wife has transportation facility. For example, when he learns that his wife needs a car to go to work, drop off the kids, do grocery shopping etc., he will get her a vehicle. This vehicle then, sort of becomes her 'second home' where she spends a considerable amount of daily time. An excellent husband will provide a wonderful environment in that second home.

During those daily trips, our bodies and vehicles acquire dirt and sin from the environment.

Hebrews 10:22 let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 

Take her car out for a wash. Vacuum clean the interior, remove those mud and dust, along with any left behind food particles. Finally, make sure it is filled with gas before returning it. If time permits, swing by the local walmart and pick up a car fragrance and place it on the dashboard. Girls love nice smell and they will appreciate the clean and aromatic car scent.

While the fresh car smell keeps her happy, it is the role of the husband to clean his wife's mind with the word of God as well. One who stays connected with God is considered clean.

Ephesians 5:26 so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,

We want our entire family to stay connected with God and always be clean of sinful impurities. The way to stay clean is by reading the word of God everyday, with the entire family.

John 15:3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.

For those who want to go beyond these, a better idea is to check with your wife about which stains in her car bothers her the most. Sometimes it maybe the ones on the rear seat, where kids snack and make a mess. A one time appointment at the Car Spa or cleaning service would keep her mind at peace, and she will drive the car just the way a princess gallops on her pony.

Love Tips:
Your wife feels taken care of, when you take care of her surroundings. Ensuring that she moves around in a reliable and clean car makes he feel secure. Mark your calendar to take her car out for regular maintenance including oil and tire change. When winter approaches, it is a good idea to winterize the car and check batteries. Leave a love note inside the car when returning from a car wash.

God Almighty, I pray that my wife moves around in a safe and reliable vehicle at all times. I understand that it is my responsibility to provide her a safe environment. Please enable me to fulfill that responsibility. I ask you to watch over her while she is away from home. May your team of angels watch over her wherever she goes. I pray for my wife to reach her destinations on time.
