The Challenge

Ok, so I will admit I read about this challenge a few days ago. I decided it wasn't for me. Then today I visited 2 more blogs where this was present. Ok, I get the point, take the challenge.
So, I have never done a link before, so we will see if this works: Go check it out (if you can). http://fruitinseason.blogspot.com/

She is hosting a challenge on honoring your husband. Being that Major Hunk is halfway around the world right now, I thought I could skim by this one. But, my God knows what I need and I feel convicted to begin honoring him now in ways that will help prepare us for the difficult transition when he returns from a very long 2 year deployment. The challenge is to set some realistic goals and check in each week on how we are doing. My goals will be different right now due to our circumstances, but I pray that this will keep honoring him at the forefront of my mind when we are together again.

#1. Continue to teach our daughter about the man her daddy is. Tell her how she is like him, about the Godly man he strives to be.

#2. Honor him in our home. Right now, my housekeeping is a little lax to say the least. I know if he were here, he would freak out. I will begin to weed through the clutter and get back to a home that I know he will be able to relax in.

Lord, thank you for my husband. Thank you that he loves you, that he loves me and the way he provides for our family. Thank you for the daddy's heart you are creating in him even 8000 miles away. Remind me to honor him in all things, my words and my deeds. In Jesus name, Amen.

What a wonderful way to honor him, even far away. Thanks for joining the challenge! I hope this blessed you both.

Avoiding the challenge at all costs. ALL COSTS! Not really...it's actually slowly creeping into my conviction zone. Which is good, because right about now, I need more "in the zone." That's when so much personal growth occurs.
