Prompt/Theme for Friday, January 23, 2009

Tell us about a time that your spouse went out of his way to serve you, and love you sacrificially.

I’m also going to include a challenge this week. I don’t know that I’m going to do it every week, and you do not have to participate, but this one is really more to keep me accountable.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, has two parts. First, look for ways that you can serve your husband. These can be big or small, sometimes the things that seem so insignificant to us can make a big difference in making our husbands feel loved and respected. And second, if your husband asks you to do something for him, even if it seems silly, or like he could easily do it for himself, do it cheerfully and without an attitude of annoyance.

We have been doing the Fireproof Bible Study. It is a six week study. The first week it takes you through the differences of  Ephesians 5:33  (However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband).  I really had no clue about how I had disrespected my husband. I had not meant to disrespected him but I did in my ways of treating him. This opened up a great dialogue between the two of us. We were each able to really open up to one another. We were talking about the way a man is supposed to be the head of the marriage. He really stepped up after this conversation and our prayer time together. He has really lovingly served me this way. He has taken over handling the bills, he lets me know much I can spend at the grocery store, and many other things that I do not have to handle anymore.


We talk a lot on the phone at night. It helps keep him awake and we miss each other. Last night he told me how proud of me he was. That really touched my heart to know that he saw that I really I am trying to be better.

A couple of weeks ago we had a little bit of extra money. He know how I was wanting a new mp3 player. Mine old one died before Christmas.  I love wearing it around the house as I clean since I am never really by myself to blast music. He and I went to Wally World first and they really did not have any that I liked so we went to Best B. I was so excited to get a new mp3 player. I tried to get him to get something, but he told me my smile was all he needed. My husband really does rock!!!

Prompt/Theme for Friday, January 16, 2009

This week’s prompt has two parts:

First, list at least one thing your husband did or said in the past week that reminded you why you love him. Everyone has to have at least one – even on a “bad week” – it doesn’t matter how big or how small! Nothing that touched your heart is insignificant!

And second, share a “Generous Wife Tip” – it can be on any subject – anything that you do or would like to do more often to make your husband feel loved and respected!


My hubby’s faith has made me smile this week. It seems like a small thing, but the strength of his faith makes mine stronger when I need it the most. His birthday was on Friday and I got made him a “love jar.” It is filled with strips of paper telling him why I love him, or why I respect him, some are just silly sayings, others are coupons on fake rose petals for foot rubs or other things, and others are just a  short little love notes. His reaction to the jar surprised me a lot. He loves it. He can not wait to make his daily pick out of the jar. He has already told me that he will be making me one. It really touched my heart the way he was so excited about a simple homemade gift.


My Tip is tell your hubby every day not only that you love him, but you respect him and that you appreciate what he does for your family. He will appreciate this more than you know. You will be building up his spirit, his self esteem, and he will never have to question if you notice the hard work he does.

Prompt/Theme for Friday, January 2, 2009

What are some practical thinks that you plan to do in the coming year to show your love and respect for your spouse? What are some habits/behaviors that you would like to foster in your life to improve your marriage?

I will make sure he has sweet tea. He drinks a whole lot of tea.

I am improving on my domestic responsibilities, they do not come naturally to me at all.

I am going to be more  supportive to his ideas.

I will ask him what are the three things you would like to have done every day without fail and I will do them.

My husband in the last 24 hours has truly amazed me twice. God blessed me so much when He brought Steve into my life. My sister and I are not getting along so much right now, and it made Christmas a little awkward. When Steve said grace he stood up for me in a very positive and polite manner. I love having such a great man who is so supportive.

I have mentioned before our tradition of the teddy bears. Well I did not get one this year. Our money situation is tight and we just had more need of other things. I will admit I was disappointed those bears make me smile and bring me such joy as I bring them out year after year. Steve got a $30 dollar gift card from work and this morning he woke me up by stuffing a bear into my arms. He had stopped on his way home from work stood in line for Wally World to open and bought me the last bear with 2008 on its foot. He brought tears to my eyes. He is so thoughtful and loving. I am so grateful to GodChristmas Bear 08 for bringing Steve into my life.
