O.K ladies I have a challenge for you! I posted this on Facebook also but I want to make it a little more extensive and also challenge my blog readers too!
The original post said this. "CHALLENGE LADIES: Ask your husband if there is one thing he would love to do but maybe thinks you would not do it or have told him you would not do it JUST WITH YOU (not a family thing), what would it be....and then do it with sheer joy! See what happens...and I challenge you to post it here. I will be doing the same :)"
So the updated challenge would be to do this daily. To make it a little easier you can phrase the question to be something like this "What is one thing you would like ME to do WITH or FOR YOU...just the two of us today." You just want to make it clear that YOU are doing something that he desires FOR or WITH him. Ask him in the morning before he heads off to work so you have the day to prepare. If he wants to go to a ball game with you, save your pennies, get a sitter (if you are local call us :) and tell him the date you are going. If he wants a good back rub ask him if he wants candles, music, scented oil...I know us women like that stuff but do they? If he wants to just spend time dreaming about the future with you, wear your kiddos out during the day and then put them to bed early so you can devote your time to HIM ALONE. But whatever it is he desires, give it your all, your BEST, your utmost joy! See what happens. I dare you!
The results of a wife's servants heart is amazing, marriages flourish, women learn things they never knew about their men...it just makes marriage fuller somehow to serve. It is part of Gods masterful plan. I love doing things for my man, that he enjoys...and I end up enjoying myself so much too! ♥ PLEASE do this challenge for at least a week. Let me know what happens, do you notice anything? How did he respond? Was it easy or hard? I am doing this too ladies! We are in this together. Post a comment here letting me know you plan on doing this, and I will be praying for you...pray for me too. Lets have some FUN delighting in serving our men in the way they desire! And you might just find that you added a new bit spice to your life.
Also I encourage you to take a look at the following 29 day challenge from To Love, Honor and Vacuum and do it WITH YOUR HUSBAND (Wade and I are half way through). I have been reading Every Woman's Marriage this is a wonderfully challenging book, it has really been a blessing and encouragement and also CONVICTING to me in my marriage. It is only $6.40 on Amazon.com - a book worth reading and having in your library. Also while I am on the reading recommendation thing the book Sheet Music is really good too. Blessings!
PS. Please feel free to share this however you like (link up in your blog, post on FB, twitter, pintrest), the more ladies we can challenge the better. The inspiration for this challenge comes from my Mom, who has been challenging the ladies in our church in a similar way. :)
