Give a Blessing

Right now I am going through The Excellent Wife study and boy, is it good… but tough! One of the things we learned last week is something I really need to work on.  So I am putting this out there for accountability and to maybe help a fellow wife out as well.  ;)

Sometimes our husbands are just grumpy.  I mean they are human after all!  So instead of being grumpy and mean back, we can give them a blessing instead.  Do something nice for our husbands.

I know, I know.  This goes against every single thing our bodies and minds tell us to do.  Why be nice if he is being mean?   Answer me this… when has being mean back ever gotten anything accomplished? Made things worse, right?

Giving our husbands a blessing when they don’t really deserve it is one of the greatest ways we can show them we love them.  And it is very effective in stopping them in their tracks and helping them to reevaluate how they are acting.

So prepare yourselves now for that day when you can reward your husband with a blessing instead of a snappy comeback.  Think of ways you can show you love him now, so later it won’t be so tough.  Like….

  • Cook his favorite meal.
  • Pick up a yummy dessert.
  • Rub his back.
  • Do something he enjoys with him.

Whatever you come up with, make sure to deliver your blessing with love! I mean, we have our crabby days as well.  And we take it out on our husbands more than we should.  Wouldn’t we want him to love us and bless us in those moments rather than get fired up back at us?

Hmmmm…. Something to think about, huh?  I know it sounds really hard.  But usually the best things for us are the hardest to do.  I know… I’m right there with you.  But try it out and let me know how it turns out!

How would you give your husband a blessing?
