Marriage Monday - Turn Your Thoughts To Him 2
Last week we talked about turning our thoughts toward our husband. Did you purposely think of your guy throughout the week? Did you pray for him and then let him know? Today we are going to talk about other ways to turn your thoughts toward your husband.
I hate fish. It is gross and it stinks. I have tried to eat it over and over, but honestly it gags me every time. According to my mother, I loved fish as a kid, but I surely don't remember it! It is not just fish, I hate all seafood. I also hate barbecue. People think I am crazy because I live in a popular barbecue state yet I hate it! And honestly, I could list several other things. I am a very picky eater.
Because I hate seafood and barbecue, I don't cook it. Ever. But my husband loves it so I am being very unfair to him.
When we have our thoughts turned to our husband, we take what he likes into consideration.
If he likes a certain food, cook it for him occasionally. Another food I just will not eat is pork (I am gagging now!). Jeremy likes pork chops, my sons do as well. So a year or so ago, I started cooking a dinner of pork chops for the guys and chicken for the girls.
Turning our thoughts to our husband by thinking about what matters to them is a great way to show them that they matter to us. Today, think of something your husband really likes that you have ignored in the past. Make plans for whatever that may be this week. He will know you have been thinking of him!
