I am by no means the expert wife….I have been married a mere nine months…but tonight I came across a post titled “101 Ways to Tell Your Husband I Love You”. I liked some of the ideas that were listed..some very creative and funny..some the obvious thing to do….But as I read, I also came across a few that, I am quite certain, would never be listed on my husband’s ‘I love you list’. In fact, a few of them would say the complete opposite to Caleb.
It made me think over my “Blessing Your Husband Before You’ve Ever Met” list. I still believe that list to contain very good things to put into practice while single, but when you get married, it’s a little different. You have to think of ways to go beyond that. It becomes more intentional.
You see, only I can know what really blesses my husband. I am his wife. I cannot give you a step by step guide on how to bless your husband because it will be different than what blesses mine. My encouragement to wives this week? There is no cookie-cutter way to bless your husband. They are gifts from the Lord and each are different and unique. Figure out what blesses yours. Little things, big things…Take time and ask him…listen and watch for things that bless him. Write them down if you have to so that you don’t forget. Put them into action. Say I love you.

Showing patience when he’s late from work and dinner’s cold. (Again)
Thanks for encouraging me to stop and think about this!
