At the Well


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.

    It's nice to know I'm not the only one who feels like this. I call it my "rush hour" of the day.

    I'm excited to refocus the little energy I have left on allowing God to show me how to use that chaotic time to still be a blessing to my husband.
