I am joining in another challenge from Courtney, at Women Living Well. This one is "The 25 Day Praise Plan- Marriage Challenge". Want to join me?
The following was taken directly from Courtney's post today:
Week 1 starts TODAY! Look for ways to praise your husband verbally. Praise him in front of the kids, friends, family, co-workers, on facebook, tweet it - get praise out anyway you can! Try to mention something noteworthy he has done - in his role as provider, father, husband, lover, or friend. If the thought of trying to come up with one terrifies you, then pray right now that God will give you new eyes to see your husband as God does. Then open your mouth and say something kind and uplifting to your husband today and tomorrow and the next day until Valentine's Day arrives!(if you want a devotional to go along with this Nancy Leigh Demoss has an amazing Marriage Pdf here)
Sometimes it is easier to talk about how great our husbands are to others rather than to him. It really is important that we don't take our husbands for granted and let them know how great they are. Isn't that what we want them to do for us?
"And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise." Luke 6:31
