Me? A refuge?

My sister, Rachel Anne at Home Sanctuary, has been on the subject of making husbands a priority - starting with this post, What All Guys Want, and continuing to this one and this one, where she talks about being a refuge for our husbands.

Here's a sample:

Forgiveness, acceptance and appreciation are three small things that go so, SO far, and how often I overlook the simplest forms of true love:

A "thank you."

A kind word.

A soft answer.

A gentle touch.


Me too.

Hmmmm that's interesting...after reading your post from yesterday,I decided to post on our marriage relationship,too. I have been convicted in the area of my speech towards my husband,so I posted about Martha Peace's book*The Excellent Wife*. Her book is so good! Your sister's blog is really good!

I so agree with your post. My hubby appreciates the kinds words and things that I do for him. It's amazing how much it means to him. As Dr. Laura says "Is your husband the type of guy who would swim across shark infessed waters for a cold lemonade for you?" My response is "Oh yes!"

Happy Magazine Day! What are your favorite magazines to read?

Inspired! Now more than ever we must remember to do those small things for one another.
