I have come to a realization lately about something that comes full circle….
Blessing someone brings blessings back to you
Recently, I have had a break through of sorts. We go through our ups and downs…. I am not always the same as I was in my CN days in my attitude and in bed with my DH. I know he misses it. But I have made a discovery, that I am hopeful that I can continue. I want to try to bless my husband in some way each and every day…. I started trying to do this on April 11.
Sometimes it is just a small thing…. like filing up his gas tank when I know he has a long travel in his car the next day. Sometimes it is making his favorite dinner and telling him that I am making a surprise for him for dinner. Sometimes it is oral sex before intercourse. I am going to try to find one way to bless him every day. And I soon begin to notice that blessing him makes him feel loved and needed. It is my hope that through what I am going to try to do for him, that it will change his life for the better, and maybe, just maybe I (or others) will reap the rewards and be blessed in return.
Am I expecting him to do it back. No, no, no. I don’t want to see selfishness on either of our part expecting it in return. It’s just a nice little social experiment to see what happens. Maybe our whole marriage will be blessed. I guess we shall see!
What experience do you have with blessing your husbands?
It is a blessing and a joy to serve my husband. I love being able to take care of him and our home. And you’re right – blessing returns upon blessing. The more I’m focused on loving and serving my husband, the more he loves and serves me also. This morning my husband brought home a beautiful purple iris bouquet as a thank you for what I do for him. It was a wonderful surprise to open my eyes this morning and to see my favorite flowers and his handsome face! God has blessed me with such a wonderful, spontaneously romantic and thoughtful man.
