Excerpt from "The Power of a Woman" by Barbara Rainey You have the power to protect your husband from temptation by making sure his sexual needs are met by you and you alone. I have a good friend who said it this way: "If you don't want to do his laundry, your husband can take his clothes to the cleaners. If you decide you don't want to cook anymore for him, he can go out to any number of great restaurants to eat. But if your husband isn't getting his sexual needs met at home with you, and he goes somewhere else, God calls that a sin." Don't misunderstand what I'm saying. If your husband sins in this way, he's responsible before God. But at the same time, understand that you play a powerful role in helping him not yield to temptation. God created us as men and women with profoundly inherent differences. If you love him, you'll want to protect him from the limitless temptations that the enemy of his soul floats by him day after day. You are most powerful as a wife when you become a student of what your husband likes and then use that knowledge and your feminine skill to protect him from temptation and sin. Keep Him for Life When we stated our vows at the wedding altar, most of us repeated the words "to have and to hold" and "till death do us part." We signed up for life. But have you ever thought about what it means to "have" and "hold" your husband? To have implies a possession. It means he belongs to you and no one else. He is your responsibility, and you are his. Are you fulfilling your sexual responsibility? For frequency? Creativity? Have you turned him down more often than you have invited his love? Do you put his needs before or after those of your children or your work? To hold means to keep or bond, much like a magnet. A magnet has the power within to pull another polar opposite to itself. My husband and I are virtual opposites in nearly every way. It's what attracted us to each other in the first place. But I must continue to be a magnet in his life if I am to keep him. Too many women would love to have him if I let him leave home for work or travel constantly in a state of sexual deprivation. First Corinthians 7:5 (NKJV) tells us, "Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to . . . prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control." This may come as no surprise to you, but most men want—really want—their wives to passionately desire them. And when you express sexual longing for him—whether verbally or non-verbally—your husband is unlikely to refuse your magnetic power.

Do you need a second amazing outfit to rock on your wedding day? Or that perfect dress that will make you stand out for your 30th, 40th or 50th birthday? Or you just want to step-out in style just because?! Come meet
Some women spend a lot of time and energy in the name of looking cute, NAKED and sexy- low-cut tops to show off their cleavage, short dresses and skirts to show off their legs- are quite common. And that is the problem, it is QUITE COMMON. It is seen so much, that one blends into another. There is always another sexy, cute girl around the corner. You see, sexy and cute appeals to the eye, it never gets past the eyes of most men. And the eyes have no memory because the eyes focus on what’s in front of them at the moment- out of sight is out of mind! That is the essence of cute and sexy. Sexy will always get attention, but it almost never holds interest. And you don’t hear grown men referring to a woman that he is interested in as being “cute.” Cute is for boys, not men. Men use words like attractive, beautiful, sensual and many other ways to describe a woman of interest. But, not cute. Cute is reserved for boys and girls.

My life has indeed been a living testimony! Your Grace, Mercy, Favour and Love has seen me through all these years! I live LORD to serve you! My life is ALL about You! LESS OF ME LORD BUT ALL OF YOU MY FATHER! You saved me, delivered me, defended me, exempted me, lifted me and then beautified me! You put a smile on my face constantly and gave me the best gifts of life for FREE! You my LORD and my ALL IN ALL! I bow before Your throne in awe and adoration, lifting my hands to declare: IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU! I AM ALL ABOUT YOU! I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL! I am a living proof that indeed you can never serve God in honesty and in truth and remain a nobody! NHN Couture is total proof that You-Are-Indeed-A-LIVING GOD! A year plus and we have proved to the world that success in business can be achievable when you do it God's way! We've broken all of Harvard Business School and Lagos Business School rules for a successful business! We at NHN Couture have proved that: 1. It's not about the LOCATION! NHN Couture is situated at my backyard not in a mall, not at the front of major business district, not by a major road side, no sign post, nothing to give you an insight that a business is in there. You can keep passing my street and never have an inkling that a booming business is right somewhere around. Even my neighbors have no idea! It's a miracle and I am grateful to God!
Comparing yourself to others is futile because everyone you see on the street has one battle, weakness, mistake or the other! Nobody is better than you and none of us on this side of God's creation is perfect. Many people are busy over lots of issues.Tough times, do not last but tough people do! When the world says "Give up", Hope whispers "Try it one more time".The road to success dotted with many tempting parking places. Don't be discouraged. It's often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock. There are obstacles in your life that will only be removed by faith. And you don't need a truck load of it, just a mustard seed. Worry quietly eats away at your spiritual health opening up for bitterness comes in. So refuse to bow to tough times because they will come and go. Laugh away and know that your best days are always ahead! Let your daily mantra be; "THIS TOO SHALL PASS". Yes! No battle is forever! Hold your head high and sing along the streets because you will sing your song and dance your dance at last in Jesus Name. ODM. Blue is often used to describe a melancholy, sad, or depressed state or feeling. But it doesn't have to! Today it symbolizes hope- "a feeling of expectation and desire for a particular thing to happen.".
Have a blessed day my friends!
When the world says, “Give up,” Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.”
