Wonder why they call it a challenge. ;)
With all we have going on in our lives-- I have been really thinking about what is going on in my head and what I am speaking with my body language and mouth.
Body language probably gets me more than my mouth-yes, you know you know what I mean.
A little rolling of the eyes here, furrowed eyebrows and yes, those snorts. Yes, I said snorts.
I know-very lady like. :0
So....... here I am. I probably won't post all thirty days
or I won't have a chance to do any other posts.
Here is the first one. And if you would like to work on this yourself --here is the link to the
Revive Our hearts web page.
"The heart of her husband safely trusts her; so he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and not evil all the days of her life." Prov. 31:11-12
To refresh your memory . . . here's the 30-Day Encouragement Challenge: for the next 30 days:
- You can't say anything negative about your husband . . . to your husband . . . or to anyone else, about your husband.
- Say something that you admire or appreciate about your husband. . . to your husband . . . and to someone else, about your husband!
To help you get started, have you ever thanked your husband for "choosing you" above all other women? He found you attractive as a person, and appreciated you. Though many circumstances in your marriage may have changed, let your husband know that you are glad God led you together, and that you want to be a blessing to him for the rest of your marriage. Let him know that he can trust you to be in his corner.
One of the best opportunities to express your gratitude is first thing in the morning. How do you greet your husband each morning? Is he confident in your love? Give him a "wake up call" that he'll never forget-a big "I love you" and an "I'm so glad I'm your wife!"------------------
I don't know that the first thing in the morning is the best time to thank Keith for choosing me.
I wouldn't want him to have one of those--"What was I thinking" moments when he sees me with my hair flying all over the place.
But, sometime today--- I will thank him for choosing me.
I might even remind him how blessed he is. ;) No, just joking.
And, I will think positive, loving thoughts about him today.
He really is a great guy ya'll. He evens me out in so many ways.
And see--I just spoke something positive about him to someone. :)
So here goes!
You know what they say--Where the mind goes the body follows.
Hmmmm, this might just be a good thing.
