Read this wife's description of her beloved in Song of Solomon 5:10-16

Criticism leaves scar; encouragement can bring healing. Almost nothing is as devastating to a man as the belief that his wife finds him repulsive. Sadly, many women unwisely criticize their husbands' bodies.

Have you ever considered how wonderfully God designed men and women? No matter how a man looks by the standards of the world, a loving God designed them all, and they are all "beautiful" in His sight. Encourage your husband today by praising his uniqueness.

As you look over your husband's body, from the tip of his toes to his bald or bushy head, thank God that your husband is "wonderfully made," then admire your husband verbally.

(Strong arms? Hairy chest? Firm hands? Big feet? Rugged chin? Wide shoulders? Compassionate eyes? Broad smile?)

Song of Solomon 5:10-16 (The Message)

My dear lover glows with health—red-blooded, radiant!

He's one in a million.

There's no one quite like him!

My golden one, pure and untarnished, with raven black curls tumbling across his shoulders.

His eyes are like doves, soft and bright, but deep-set, brimming with meaning, like wells of water.

His face is rugged, his beard smells like sage,

His voice, his words, warm and reassuring.

Fine muscles ripple beneath his skin, quiet and beautiful.

His torso is the work of a sculptor, hard and smooth as ivory.

He stands tall, like a cedar, strong and deep-rooted,

A rugged mountain of a man, aromatic with wood and stone.

His words are kisses, his kisses words.

Everything about him delights me, thrills me through and through!

That's my lover, that's my man,

dear Jerusalem sisters.
