Monday Matrimony

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you and the love(s) of your life have a wonderful day. And now for your weekly bit of [unsolicited] advice...

The staff girls at South Bay have been reading a book together called, "The Excellent Wife" by Martha Peace. I got this list from her book. I thought you might enjoy trying out a few of these on the week where we celebrate love!

Ways to Bless My Husband
  • Pray for him daily.
  • Speak words of kindness, softly and gently to him. 
  • Surprise him with a sweet note or card in his lunch.
  • Serve a special meal to him- his favorite food.
  • Give him an unexpected gift.
  • Fill up his car with gas.
  • Thank him for something good he has done.
  • Praise him for one of his good character qualities.
  • Be humble enough to confess your own failures to him.
  • Reaffirm your commitment to him.
  • Initiate a special time of love-making with him.
  • Spend time with him doing something he likes to do.
  • Ask him to take a walk (with you, of course).
  • Obey God and let your husband see Christ in you.
