I just found a fabulous encouragement for Mondays: At the Well - In Pursuit of Titus 2. Come join me At the Well as we pursue our calling as Titus 2 women.
Today the discussion is:
Welcome Home Daddy!
How can we lay a welcome mat of love for our husbands after a long day of hard work? How can we make our homes inviting places where Daddy longs to be at the end of a long day? How can we involve our children in this process and teach them to show reverence to their Daddy?
In our home, my husband has a very stressful job. Each morning I cover him with prayer for his upcoming day. But, by afternoon, I am tired from working and usually beginning supper preparations, the kids are underfoot and many times it is not a welcoming time for Daddy. Reading others posts have inspired me to make this time of day more pleasant. Some things I plan to pay more attention to are:
A happy greeting - smile, hug and kiss!
A tidy house - each of our "daddy's" have a certain way they like things. It is funny that through this post topic it has been mentioned that most men have a need for honor, love, respect, quiet atmosphere and FOOD! This seems to go well with our daddy also!
A listening ear,
Some resemblance of peace and order in the home!
Focused attention - not on the phone or computer!
Dinner either being prepared or planned for.
I don't have a lot to offer for suggestions, but appreciate the encouragement of At the Well to make this time of day more special.
