Here we are, day two of our challenge.
If you're just now joining in, be sure to read yesterday's post and first day task. I'm not exactly sure how many of you are joining in, but for those that left their names on the linky list, thank you, I appreciate it :)
So onto today's task.
" . . . through love serve one another." Gal. 5:13b
How did you do yesterday with your first day of blessing and encouraging your husband? Was it easy? Was it hard to hold your tongue when you wanted to say something negative? We hope you're off to a good start. (If you blew it, don't give up start again today!) There are so many practical things you can praise, if you look for them.
Today, find some way that your husband is serving you or your family. Does he help around the house? Take care of the car? Fix things that are broken? If your budget allows, give him a new, small tool with a big bow attached. But make sure he doesn't think it's part of a "Honey Do" list!
Maybe your husband's not a handyman, but does he run errands for you? Let you go first? Take care of you when you are sick? Help you make decisions? Praise him for his willingness to serve others. Let him know that you see his unique service as a great strength.
Yesterday was wonderful, even though we had already talked about the joy of being in each other's lives, I once again thanked him for choosing me and for continuing to love me through all these years.
I did almost get a little irritated with him, it was something to do with the kids where I felt he was being unfair and my first instinct was to lash out, but I bit my tongue and calmly talked to him out of their earshot and it was resolved right away :)
I know it's easy to get caught up in things and react, but we have to really learn to control ourselves and not act on impulse but rather calmly and composed.
Let's see how today goes :)
How was it for you?
