I’ve said it many times… life gets way too busy! But too busy to kiss our man like we mean it? This should never happen! Kids come along and we have a tendency to push our man aside, for the ‘greater good’ of raising our little babes.
But who came first? This one is obvious… we would never have them, if not for our precious man! We need to show him (and them) that Daddy comes first. This is a priceless gift to them! We are doing them a disservice when we neglect Daddy, to care for them. It is a gift and a brightly shining jewel in our home, to show our children that we CHERISH our Husband. How can we show our children that we CHERISH Daddy?
1) Praise Him Throughout The Day!
While you are at home with your children, speak praises about Daddy! “Isn’t it so wonderful how Daddy works so hard for us? He is such a special Daddy!”
2) Write Thank You Notes
Once a week, sit down with your children and write thank you notes to Daddy!
3) Think Kind Thoughts About Him
Our mind is a battleground! There is so much crud and junk we can let into our minds. When we start thinking negative thoughts about our spouse, it can be a downward spiral! Start by thinking thankful thoughts about your husband throughout the day. Focus your mind and heart on things that are true, lovely, etc (Phil. 4:8-9)
4) Thank Him Yourself!
Our Husbands have a great NEED to be loved and admired. This comes primarily through sex. But it isn’t just about sex! It’s about the way we look at him, the way we admire him, the way we honor him with our words and actions, and the way we KISS HIM!
I’m going to make it a priority this week (and every week) to kiss my man like I mean it! So many times I don’t kiss him like I mean it. I treat it as another item to check off my list. Kiss husband goodbye, check! Kiss husband hello, check!
Check Out This List For Some Great Ideas: 101 Ways To Tell Your Husband I Love You
These were some of my favorites from the list:
LAUGH AT HIS ANTICS Don’t let the little things that your husband does get on your nerves. If you think about it, some of these things may have been what attracted you to him! He just wouldn’t be the same if he didn’t do these things.
CHECK BEFORE THROWING THINGS AWAY If your husband has some things that seem useless to you, don’t trash them until you’ve made sure he doesn’t need them.
TAKE A WALK OR A HIKE TOGETHER Let nature set the mood for romance! Talk, listen, and hold hands.
DON’T EXPECT HIM TO READ YOUR MIND If there is something you want your husband to know about you, tell him. Don’t expect him to just know what you’re thinking or what you need.
PACK HIS FAVORITE TREAT Buy his favorite candy bar or other treat, and pack it in his lunch with a love note.
GIVE HIM A MASSAGE Go buy some sweet smelling oils and turn your bedroom into a spa! Give your husband a full body massage and work out those aching muscles.
BRAG ON HIM IN FRONT OF HIS FRIENDS Men naturally rely on boost in their ego now and then in order to stay confident. Let him hear you tell others about the great things he says and does.
WORSHIP TOGETHER The couple who prays together, stays together. These will be very tender and special moments shared between the two of you, as well as important.
GRAB A KISS WHILE YOU WAIT Kiss your husband while you’re waiting at the stoplight or in the food drive-through. Your wait won’t seem near as long, and you may wish it could last a littler longer!
KEEP YOURSELF ATTRACTIVE It’s easy to fall into a “house wife” mode and just walk around in “cleaning clothes” with your hair twisted into a mess. That’s OK while your actually cleaning, but try to be more presentable by the time your husband sees you. Bathe, put on clean clothes and a dab of perfume, and set your hair nice.
