How to make a happy husband...

Being a wife just means that you are married, but being a good wife is a large responsibility. There are so many temptations in this world that are screaming at our men every day. What are you doing to make your man excited to come home? Obviously you are there but are you fixed up? Are you presentable? Is your house in order? Are dinner plans made?

It is my desire to make my husband excited to come home. It is not easy, yet I feel accomplished when he comes home and he is happy that dinner is cooking, the house is in order and he can just sit back and relax after a long day. I firmly believe that it is a woman's responsibility to take care of her home. It doesn't matter if you are the primary money maker, it is a woman's responsibility to prepare her home for her husband.

If you read Proverbs 31 you will notice that the woman is always "behind" the man. She is to be the support while he is well known by respectable people. It is our job to be the support, behind the scenes. If a woman cannot handle being behind the scenes then she must allow the Lord to work on her heart. We must be selfless and put our husbands first. If we truly love our husbands, then that shouldn't be a problem. Just as the church is always trying to lift up the name of the Lord so should we be lifting up our husbands.

  1. Your husband told my David about your blog and I wanted to say it looks great. I love this post and you are so right that we are to support our husbands by keeping our household managed and their stomaches feed!
