"Wife Wednesday"

Cup of Hearts

I think I will throw a new twist into Wednesdays around here!! 

I follow a wonderful page on Facebook named

Each week I am finding myself drawn to their posts and faced with that little nagging feeling that yes, they are speaking to me, I have become just a little bit lazy towards my husband and I can do better and I should do better!!  :)

As a wonderful preacher that I once knew said, if it's something you are being convicted about, then it's something you need to change. 

Monday's question was : " How do you treat your husbands when they walk through the door?  I want you to stop and think for a moment. Think about last week, Monday all the way through Friday. Each day when your husband walked through that front door, what did you do? Did you meet him there at the door with a warm greeting letting him know you are happy he is home? Did you shout a hello from the other room? Did you say, "come get this kid from me now!"? Or did you ignore him? What did you do?"

I will be the first to admit that I don't always run to the door and hug and kiss him.  Sometimes I am waving to him from the computer, or have the grandkids running circles around me as I am running back out the door to yet another place to go for the day!!  He never seems to mind, but truly, who wouldn't want to be greeted like you were the most special person on the planet and the center of someones world? It's also a really easy trap to fall into the whole " well he doesn't do that for me" thing.  You just can't do that.  I have found over the years that it what you do will eventually be reflected back to you.   I have been married now for 26 years.  My husband and I have reached that "comfy" place in our relationship where we "know" that we love each other, but even now it is just as necessary to invest in our relationship and still be willing to take those extra steps to affirm our love and adoration to each other. 

Today's question was "When was the last date you had with your spouse"? 
 I have no idea.  It's been a few months now. (Of course if you read through some of my other blogs you will completely understand the delay...but even with all of the tragedy we still need to find time for just the two of us)  Godspeed Little Man ~ The Story of our Grandson Jacob  I posted a blog not too long ago about making a "date night box" with strips of paper in them containing the names of neat things to do for a date night, favorite restaurants, new restaurants, new activities, movies, ice cream. pizza night at home etc.....Ladies we need to invest in our spouses and our time together.  It' s so easy to let family time take over and all of our other obligations fill all of our hours until you leave no time for the most important person in your life, your SPOUSE!!

So let's all pinky promise to start doing better for our spouses....
