This post is really for me. It’s a reminder to myself of the importance of my ministry as my husbands wife. If you were looking for deals just scroll down past this post.
For those of you interested in the other parts of being a Proverbs 31 women read on.
When my husband comes home from work there are times when the bed is covered with coupons, my laptop, books and other miscellaneous items that I use to manage this blog. I try to make a habit of winding down blog management once I get his text alerting me that he’s on his way home, but I don’t always use that window of opportunity wisely.
If you find that you are not focusing on receiving your hubby when he arrives home here are some gentle reminders that may help.
When it gets close the his arrival time, begin tidying up his sitting area. My husband is a man of habit. He does the same thing every night when he arrives home. He showers and then sit down on his side of the bed to rest his feet. Sometimes, I don’t realize that my junk is on his side until I am distracted by him pushing my papers to my side of the bed, or asking where he should put my things. As a sign of respect, love and courtesy to him I have been forcing (and I do mean forcing myself) to log off as soon as he texts me that he’s on his way.
Set a time in the evening when you will start preparing to receive your hubby. That time for each of us will be different and will depend on your husbands schedule. I shower and get prettied up. I also begin tidying and prepping his area. I place his slippers beside his bed just to show him how special he is to me. I also make sure that he has a clean towel and face cloth in the bathroom. I turn the temperature up a bit so that the house is extra warm when he comes in out of the cold. These are a few special things I do to make him feel special.
A wise women who mentored me before I got married said, “Whatever you are too good to do for your husband another women is waiting willingly to do it for you.” That statement stuck with me. Although I don’t get it right everyday that statement continues to motivate me to be the best wife I can for my husband. He’s just that special.
I hope these words have inspired you to do the same for your husband.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. Proverbs 31:11-12
