Today is Day Thirty-one of “The Respect Dare” and we are going to talk about enjoying just hanging out with our men.
“Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.” ~ Proverbs 21:9 NIV
I used to be very quarrelsome. I always had to have the last word and prove that my way was the right way. It is what I saw growing up and just thought to be normal. I realized a while ago how damaging that was and I just don’t want to be that woman.
But knowing that and changing it are two different stories. I’m still fully a work-in-progress.
Yes, I am a highly focused woman who enjoys working hard and achieving results. My husband likes achieving results at a slower pace and often enjoying the journey and detours as something strikes his fancy.
His three favorite activities to do with me are … sex, worship ministry, marriage ministry.
We actually spend the majority of time together when he isn’t working. He regularly seeks my input on worship and marriage ministry topics or tasks. I enjoy spending time with him and look forward to spending many more years together, should the Lord not return soon.
Do something this week to show that you enjoy spending time with him. Just enjoy being together.
On that note, I’m off to spend some time with my hubby while he is home and there aren’t any major interruptions.
Lord, I pray that You would give us hearts that desire to just enjoy time spent doing things our husbands enjoy with us. Let us learn to enjoy just spending time in their presence like we do with You.
Please continue to open our eyes and hearts to areas that we can be more fully transparent and open with our husbands. Let us bless them with all of ourselves.
In Jesus’ Name… Amen!
