Last month Ken and I celebrated our 14th year of marriage so we are in our 15th year - so I thought this would be a great year to really focus both in our personal life and on this blog on ways that I can grow in my role as a godly wife and that I would concentrate on working on my marriage. So I have planned to do a weekly series throughout the whole year that will include ways I am challenging myself and you (if you are a wife) to grow in your marriage.
My Challenge for this week -actually for the year!
Make a list of the things about your husband that you are thankful for. Every day add one.
My goal is to add one thing each day for the whole year (365!) I am going to try to make each one different. I think there are probably 365 things about Ken that I can thank God for.
I feel very strongly that focusing on thankfulness (rather than negatives) can really be super helpful in many, many areas and I think it can work wonders in our marriages.
I know there are times when I have had down days and things don't seem to be going very well and I am truly feeling grumpy and then if I start to make a list of things that I am thankful to God for my day and my attitude will often very quickly make a turn-around. Whether you need a big turn-around in your marriage or if you are doing pretty good (but we can always do better, can't we?) I think it will be beneficial to thank God for your husband!
Will you be joining me? I would love to have you....
I am hoping to share some of the other dreams I have for my life and this blog this year soon. I am excited about 2013!
Also if you have an idea for a shorter more concise title for this marriage series I would love to hear it! I have trouble with being too wordy! As far as this series goes I will be posting on it every Wednesday, Lord willing.
