Yet again.

Just like we need to constantly communicate our love to our wives, so we need to consistently pray with them.  This is one of my weaknesses as the leader of my home, but it is such a vital part of a strong relationship.  There is no other activity that can take the cares of your life and the conflicts with your wife and put them to rest like prayer.  It is not a magic spell you cast, but it is taking your wife to the throne of the God of the universe.  There you can bare you souls, confess your sins, bury your burdens and rejoice in the greatest love known to man.  What else on earth can offer you and your lover that experience?  So do it.  Pray with your wife every day this week.

Watch your words

Jesus said, “I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak . . .”

We live in a day where we often weigh our words and actions by the letter of the law.  We speak critically, but carefullyso as not to be condemned if brought into a court of law.  This is not the spirit a Christian husband ought to have.

Read through James 3, spend some time in prayer and study over it and then confess to your wife where you have offended her.  For I don’t think it is a matter of ‘if’ we have offended, but when did we offend.

Love Notes

Whether it is by text, e-mail, snail-mail or sticky note, let your wife know how much you love her with a ‘love note’ at least 5 times this week.  What more needs to be said, right?  🙂

Beat Her Up

Maybe this will not be applicable for you, but more often than not my wife is the first one out of bed.  So pick a day this week to put a little plan into action.  Get up before your wife does and take care of some of her ‘responsibilities’ for her.  By starting breakfast, getting the kids going or just getting the water hot in the shower for her you will be starting her day off with a big ‘I love you’.
