Today I washed my husband’s feet, not just washed, but a full on pedicure; the absolute works of foot care and love.
Today was a humbling experience for me to do something so special for my husband who doesn’t ask or require much. Not only washing his feet showed love, service and humbleness; it also showed that I’m not above him. I am also his equal partner.
What made me decide to wash my husband feet? In the Bible it speaks about how people in the old days washed others feet as a sign of love, service and humility.
Jesus washed the feet of his disciples as a sign of humility.
Even the woman who had nothing and washed Jesus feet with her hair and tears. The lord was so blessed that she did this.
My husband is a very special man, he is the head of our home and does many things to provide us an exceptional life. A life that I’m truly grateful and blessed to have. My husband never complains about providing for us. I’m not sure of his daily struggles as a man however, I respect the things he faces and still remains the best husband and father. Each day he gets up super early in the mornings, put those hard steel combat boots on and goes to work. Not just any job but as United States Sailor.
I never realized all the stress my husband endures until I looked at his feet. His feet tell a story. A story that doesn’t get heard often. A story of a hard working man who does what he needs to do to provide for his family.
Honestly, I don’t like feet, never in a million years would I have thought of giving my husband a pedicure but it all changed.
It dawned on me that my husband always makes sure that my feet are well kept. My sweetie makes sure that my feet never have to endure what his feet have to encounter daily.
I could cry writing this post because I’m truly blessed at the hard working husband I have. A man who loves God and his family so much.
If you are a spouse, I challenge you to wash the feet of the one you love.
