Welcome to Freebie Friday at The Littlest Way! This may not be an every Friday occurrence, but hopefully a regular one. Today, a Sirach 1 printable, computer wallpaper and phone wallpaper in anticipation of our soon to be released Sirach Bible Study and Journal.
It’s important to pay attention to what we say to others, but it’s equally important to pay attention to what we say to ourselves, lest we give others a reason to call us a hypocrite.
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.
Welcome to the final stretch of my 31 Days Writing Challenge. Today is Day 28 and we’re considering a good wife as we read through the book of Sirach. We talked about an intelligent wife and a modest wife; today let’s consider a good wife in her well ordered home.
So a good wife can be defined by how well her home is ordered? Uh-Oh. I could go through some legitimate excuses like a two month long illness, nine of us, traveling, hunting, nine of us…but they would just be excuses. A well ordered home just makes life easier don’t you think? It’s a constant struggle of mine to move and breathe in a well ordered home while granting grace to the nine of us so I’m not constantly walking around saying “Do this…Do that…Why did you not do that or this?” Although I’m pretty sire my children would tell you I say that way too much already and anyway.
