Love Note Challenge!!!

How many of you remember when you got love notes while you were in school? Did you get them or did you give them or both??? It probably said something like this?  Do you like me?  Circle one….yes or no! Will you go out with me? Circle one….yes or no! Can I be your boyfriend? Circle one….yes or no! Thinking back over this is kind of funny but cute at the same time.  Well think about the time when you dating your spouse before getting married?  Did you ever give him any love notes?  Did you give him any Hallmark cards just because? Well, let’s start that back ladies!!  One thing I have learned in the daily walk of being a wife is that the men want to be loved as well as appreciated.  Sometimes we can be so selfish and not focus on them.  It’s ok to tell your husband in front of others that you appreciate him and that he is the bomb.com but do you also let him know in private. Telling him and showing him is two different things that can be combined as one with a MAJOR affect to it.

Let’s start a Love Note Challenge! This challenge is for ten (10) days.  If you desire to keep it going, by all means DO!!! You don’t have to stop after the 10 days. I just gave it an amount of days to kick it off. Pull out the sticky notes and get to writing those “love notes”! Put little messages on a sticky note to let him know that you do care and you do love him.  If you want to get creative with it, do it in a scavenger hunt!  Leave notes in certain places with clues that will blow his mind and make the prize a BIG ONE!!! You will be amazed at what the love notes will do to your marriage.  It will bring the cuteness back.  It will bring the romance back.  It will bring your crush back.  It will put a smile on both of your faces.  It will make the daily walk of being married to your PRINCE a great one!   

You could maybe start off by saying “I love you and have a great day at work”. Then maybe later in the day, you can send him a text (and yes a text message can be a love note as well…depends on what you put in the messageJ) telling him that you can’t wait to see him when you get home.  Give him something worth looking forward to. Remind him of why he chose you to be his life partner.  Kick it up a notch.  Heck, if you even want to do “Sex Coupons”…do it!!!!  Put some Hershey Kisses in a sandwich bag and put a little note with it to make him think about your luscious lips!  

One thing I have learned about being married in God’s eyesight is that sex is not a bad thing in marriage.  Sex should only take place while you’re married but a lot of us missed the concept of that memo before getting married…like me.  Hey, yes I am guilty of it and I’m not shame to tell the world. But as I got closer and closer to God and asked for His forgiveness, that’s when he started preparing me for marriage.  You will catch that last sentence later. Make your marriage what you want it to be and how you want it to be.  



A marriage built by Christ, STANDS STRONG! 


Enjoy ladies!!






Enjoy the coupons!!!

Praying for your husband!!

Do you pray for your family? Do you pray for your husband?  Do you pray to be a better wife? We as women can be sooooo, what's that word, STUBBORN!!!! Yes, even I am calling myself stubborn because we can be at times.  We get so caught on things and just hate to tell our husbands that their right.  They may not be right ALL the time, but there are some times when they are right and we just hate to admit it.  

But on another tip on prayer...don't be so quick to pray for your husband to change.  Why would you want him the way you want him?  You didn't create him and it was a purpose the two of you got married.  You and him makes a whole.  Meaning he is his way and you are you're way.  You're not the same.  Praying for someone else to change may not be the right thing to do because they may not be the ones changing.  It might just be you!! Instead of praying for him to change, pray that he because closer to God.  Pray that God will protect him throughout the day when you are apart from each other.  Pray that  God will bring the two of you closer and closer. Pray that you all will be the light to other marriages and that God shines through it. 

We may not know it, but our husbands need prayer and encouragement every second of the day.  Now ladies admit it, we can be difficult to please, talk to, and hand. So, since the man in the HEAD of the HOUSEHOLD, he has a lot of pressure on him.  Taking care of his house.  Taking care of his wife.  Taking care of the kids.  Fixing the broken things in the house.  Keeping the maintenance up on the car.  Being the ear to hear you complain about your bad day at work.  The shoulder you can cry on when there is no one else. The list goes on and on.  He has so much responsibility we don't even see it.  Well some of us see it but we don't want to recognize it.  Oh and let's not forget that his is a great dad!!! How he takes time out with the kid(s).  How he helps with the homework and dinner when you have to stay late for work or stop by the church.  Really, he is your backbone.  

Just make sure that you show him that you appreciate him.  Always tell him thank you. Tell God thank you for your husband as well because many others are not as fortunate as you are.

The Season of Thanksgiving!


Every day should be a day of thanksgiving but I think we put a little extra effort into it around this time of the year.  Thanksgiving is on Thursday, November 28 this year and time is fastly approaching. What are you thankful for?  Health? Peace? Joy? Your family? The list can go on and on.  I am thankful for everything.  God did not have to let me see this far and the things I have seen and experience along the way but I am glad that He did.




                              
We can sometimes take the small things for granted.  When I experience my hospital visits, it makes me think.  I then start to talk to God and tell Him that I am sorry for taking this for granted because if it is taken away from me, I would not know how to handle it.  Life can be simple if you allow it to.  There will be things along the way that can throw us off track but it’s up to you to get back on.  We wrestle against so much in our daily lives we loose focus.  But God shows a small sign to remind you hey I’m here to take care of you…just trust Him!!



As we prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday, take a minute and sit down and make a list of what you are thankful for. You can even go as far as putting the good and bad on the list.  I thank God for the bad things because it allows me to learn from it and keep going.  Look around you and realize how blessed you are.  We sometimes get so caught up in material things, that we overlook the natural things.  I will post my list later.  Be blessed and be thankful!!!

Countdown to the tree! Christmas that is!!!!!

So I decided last year I was going to retire my purple and silver decoration for my Christmas tree. This year I have decided to do.....drum roll please....gold and bronze. I think I am also going to incorporate some pine cones, greenery (but not to much because the tree is green.....ha ha), and even some outdoor decor. My husband is a hunter. So I'm thinking that if I incorporate something he loves, besides me, he will be more into the holiday season. He is not the "holiday" person because he thinks people go overboard. The true reason for the holiday season is to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. I'm not taking that away but I do want to do a little decoration. I would also like to do something outside. Not a lot, just something to jazz up the decor on the inside.

Now the coutdown has officially started!!! Woooohooooo. :-) 8 weeks till Christmas; 4 weeks till I put the tree up.

When I was little, we always put the tree up immediately after thanksgiving. The tradition is thanksgiving service on thanksgiving, dinner with family, black Friday shopping, come home and hide the gifts bought, and put the tree up. I really want to stick to that. Well, I'm off to do hang out with the young man of the house and also check out some of the Christmas decorations. I love days like this.

Grabbing my cup of coffee and we are out door!!! Talk to you soon -:)

P.s. this is my tree from last year along with my handsome son.
