Years ago I instituted an unusual, outside holy hour for myself. Due to finances, personality, and parenting style, I got creative for my restorative practice. The benefits weren’t for me alone! Because of my holy hour, my husband grew to be a more confident dad. Oh, you’ll love the prayer I composed!
Women, living in the state of grace, are a powerful, intuitive force able to raise saints for the glory of God. Do not let anyone steal your mothering grace–it’s yours and yours alone!
A meditation from the Daily Advent Devotional for Women–Day 22…When we crawl in bed at night, what’s the mathematical equation to find the area between us and our husband? Him hanging off the right side plus us hanging off the left equals a span of separation not only physical, but emotional, and spiritual as well. What would happen if we just reached out yonder, across crumpled sheets and through flannel pajamas and touched his arm as we fell asleep? Would that be the first step to help fill that void?
I did it, I wrote consistently 30 of 31 Days. I enjoyed reading and reflecting on the book of Sirach this month, but I think some of my favorite posts from the month have been the last couple where I considered a good wife. One of my purposes in writing is to encourage women to take every thought captive to Christ and stop being a slave to negative thoughts. Daily affirmations can play a huge part in overcoming negative thinking. So let’s pull together some daily affirmations for wives.
Remember, these affirmations are not to change our husband. He will most likely be the same guy in one week as today. These daily affirmations are to change us. They are to change our heart, our thoughts and our words about our husband. We are fighting fire with fire here. If we have been negative or sloppy in our thoughts and words about our husband, the purpose of saying these affirmations are to make us positive and intentional in our thoughts and words
A good wife makes her husband happy. She allows him to be at peace. There is nothing more appealing than someone who is at peace.
Hi there and welcome to Day 29 of My 31 Days Writing Challenge. I have really enjoyed writing on a particular topic or theme for the month. It has definitely kept my writing more focused and consistent. To close out the 31 Days, I’m considering a good wife and today let’s talk about a good wife honors her husband. If you’ve been reading here, you know I enjoy looking words up in the Thesaurus. I use a Thesaurus like most people use a dictionary. So I looked up the word, Honor: appreciate, compliment, keep. Of course there were more words, the ones you would expect, admire, celebrate, praise…But I want to consider the lesser known ones I picked out from the list.
