Each Monday I post a picture on Instagram with a snapshot of something we do because marriage matters. You can read more about why we do this on my first Marriage Matters post. Having a strong and happy marriage doesn’t just happen – it takes work!
Here’s a recap of my #MondayMarriageMatters posts from September!
Last month I talked about the hashtag #marriageworks and how it brought me hope. One thing we can all probably stand to work on as wives is the way we respond to our husbands (see the insta from 9/20). When he calls to you from another part of the house, how do you respond? Do you even respond? I know sometimes I’m tempted not to answer, just so he has to walk to where I am instead of me going to see what he needs. I mean really – how ugly and selfish is that?
When he calls you on the phone, how do you answer? I always try to make my voice perky so he knows I’m excited to hear from him, but sometimes the call comes at a truly inconvenient time. Answering the phone in an annoyed tone and rushing him through the conversation always leaves me regretful that I didn’t just take a second and appreciate the fact that he chose to communicate with me! I hope you’ll make an effort this week to answer your husband with kindness and love. I’m working on it too!
I hope you’ll join in the #MondayMarriageMatters challenge – of course you don’t have to post it on Instagram unless you choose to do that, but I love seeing what you share! There are over 100 posts under the #MondayMarriageMatters hashtag – head over there for some great marriage encouragement!
Take a moment this week and do something special for your marriage – because it matters!
