Here is Courtney's challenge this week. To read more head over to her blog Women Living Well.
Week #5 Challenge: Make a list of 5 things you currently do and ask your husband to prioritize them for you of what is important to him. For example - a clean home, home cooked dinner, coupon clipping, service at church, having friends over for dinner, watching/doing sports with him, etc.
Okay, this should be a fun one. My husband is very laid back and never complains about any of the things I do regularly like cook, take care of the house or teach the kids. I will ask him about this later and will be surprised at what he says.
This is what I think:
1. Quiet time for myself; reading, praying, blogging
2. Taking care of the kids
3. Encouraging others
4. Cooking nutritious meals and being a good shopper
5. Cleaning the house (really he never,ever has had to ask me to do this) LOL
I will post later to see what he thinks. Hey you never know maybe he will add something to the list that I have never thought of!
Okay I asked him and he said "umm". After looking it over for a few minutes in deep thought this is what he said:
1. Quiet time for me
2. Just being there (no talking), quiet embraces
3. Keeping the family schedule, including reminding him
4. Good shopping plans
5. Taking care of kids (including nutritious meals)
#2 is a new one added to my list. My husband likes to just be with me without talking. I, on the other hand, am a yapper. It is difficult for me to not talk when we are finally alone. I will have to work on this one. The other ones are fairly easy ones because I enjoy doing them. It reminds me of how we are to love our enemies. It is easy to love those who are loveable but we are commanded to love even our enemies (Matthew 5:43)
