Love letters are intended to show Christian men how a God-fearing man’s words can build up his wife and create a strong and loving, Godly marriage.
This letter was written after the wife had their first child and the couple’s marriage was relatively new…
I love you and I have since I first came to know you by your physical beauty and your physical appeal.
I still love the way you look and the senses you stir in me. I was also attracted by your energy and vitality, characteristics that I still love in you.
I was attracted by your artistic creativity something I need in my family to complement me.
I love the things you do and would love for you to do even more.
I love your love for children and the care and concern you have for our son. I knew that from the start and enjoy seeing your love for him manifest each day.
I love your grace, style and flair. You are not ordinary.
I love your spirit, although sometimes rebellious, mostly I see you as being highly spirited and willing to see something through to the end.
I love your concern for other people. I admire the emotions you feel for other people’s pain. That complements me because I am not as empathetic.
I love the ways in which we complement each other. You are style oriented. I am laid back. The result is better for both of us.
I love the love we have together for the Lord.
I love the commitment we have to grow spiritually, emotionally, and in our relationship.
I love our energy and excitement for life.
I love our devotion to kids and family life.
I love our commitment to one another, no matter what happens. I know you will be there by my side.
I love the fact that we share so many goals for our life.
I love the fact that we are both healthy and committed to long term health and a long life together.
I love the fact that we both have leadership qualities that we are willing to share with our friends in the church.
Love your Husband

Yes, a real love letter…
I first noticed you and fell in love with you because of your physical beauty.
I still love the way you look and despite the passing of time find you to be wonderfully beautiful.
I love your intense passion for whatever you do. Enthusiasm (God Within) is one of your real gifts and it keeps life from being boring with you.
I love your compassion. I have always marveled at your ability to love the down-trodden and the unlovable. Few people have as much one-on-one compassion as you.
I love your integrity. While you make mistakes or err as we all do, you are always willing to confront the problem and own up to it.
I love your tenacity. When you get into something you believe in or want to accomplish, nothing gets in your way. You have always hung on until the deed was complete.
I love how you love me. I think early on in our relationship, I expected you would end the relationship. I was surprised you stuck with me. Over the years I have been so glad you loved me through the good times and the bad.
I love your energy. It has always been a key asset of yours, but as my energy has ebbed lately, I have been all the more thankful that you could fill the void.
I love your love for the Lord. I am glad you spend the time you do in prayer and studying the Word. I know you bring down blessings on our family and I know that God will always work through such a willing vessel.
I love you, Wife, and I thank God He put us together and has kept us together. I LOVE YOU.
So, do you Christian husbands want a rich and meaningful relationship with your wife?
If so, after reading Love Letters can you see better how building up your wife can bring more love, more harmony, and more unity?
Also, can you better see that God will bless a man that focuses on whatever is good and lovely in his wife for the edification of the body?
After all you and your wife are “One flesh”.
Philippians 4:8King James Version8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Please note what the definition of edify means: to instruct and improve especially in moral and religious knowledge: (UPLIFT also to ENLIGHTEN, INFORM, BUILD, ESTABLISH)
Try it gentlemen. Build her up. It works…
