40 Day Challenge, Day 4: In Search of Beauty

As always, begin with the Prayer of Abandonment.

Ladies, when was the last time you unleashed your inner diva on your husband, for no reason other than to remind him of the girl he married?

Gentlemen, when was the last time you noticed, really noticed, your wife’s beauty? The sparkle in her eye, the music in her laugh, the many evidences of care and hominess she puts into your home, to make it a place you want to be?

Today’s theme is beauty. It’s one of the transcendent virtues that (along with truth and goodness) have whispered of the very nature of God since the beginning of time . . . and how we, as creatures made in God’s image, reveal a glimpse of God’s original design as well as our eternal destiny.

And so, as you go about your day today, think of how you can offer the gift of beauty, either in the making of it or the joyful acknowledgment of that gift. Pour yourselves a glass of wine, linger over a lovely table, and together, thank God for the beauty of your marriage.
