30 Day Husband Encouragement: Day 2

Day Two:

“…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.

    Well, I meant to post and link to my own blog yesterday and never got around to it. Which probably in all actuality ended up being a good thing cause I actually blew the first day of the challenge anyway. (no excuses or anything….just being honest) So that being said I am going to try again today and will hopefully not only accomplish being more encouraging but also blogging about it!
    And although I’ll put this in my post let me go ahead and say that my husband did run some errands yesterday as well as put some chairs together (that’s been needed doing for awhile) last night so I’m very thankful for both of those things!
    Hope you have a great day and thanks for encouraging us wives to live up to the challenge. 🙂
