Day Two: 30-Day Husband Encouragement Challenge

Day Two:
" . . . through love serve one another." Gal. 5:13b

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.

Keith is the handyman in our house. He can do just about anything he puts his hands to---if he does not know how--he will figure it out. I really do appreciate this about him. My Dad is the same way.

I don't think there are any tools that Keith does not have--so I'll have to open my mouth and praise him today for his strengths.I don't know why it is so hard to open my mouth to praise him. But I really must work on this.

I too fall way short of Praise out loud!! Way short, I think maybe it's because I fell like if I tell him he is great it will go to his head and I will feel less appreciated in some way? Funny ha, and the fact that he does not take compliments well at all.

I love this challenge! I am so far behind in participating in some of the awards and challenges I've already committed myself to, but I love, love, love to read Denise as well. She has such a sweet heart and her devotion to her husband is genuine. I always feel uplifted reading about her prayers and devotion to her husband. Blessings on your day!
