Husbands, Love, and Football

1 Peter 3:1-6 ESV

Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, when they see your respectful and pure conduct. Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious.

I saw a little girl shopping with her dad at Target this week.  I wondered if she had dressed herself because she was wearing sparkly purple slip on shoes, a lime green tutu, and over that a Seattle Seahawks football jersey.  We girls do like to dress for the men in our lives!    Right now my husband is watching his college team play football.  He could probably tell me exactly what colors each team is wearing and describe their jerseys, helmets, pants, and footwear.   He may even recognize the players by their numbers.  I  doubt he even knows what I'm wearing.   Wait...I just tested him...he doesn't.  Sigh.   I probably should be wearing his college colors, then slip on a tutu and sparkly shoes for myself.  

Then again, maybe I should be paying more attention to his football game.
