You know the expression:
Well, that got me thinking about a way we could uplift our husbands together – praying for them, being thankful for them, and acknowledging the strengths and positive attributes of our husbands.
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
I invite you to join me during the month of November as we find ways to be thankful for and acknowledge true and noble things about our husbands.
I’ll give a topic for the day, and a prayer of thanksgiving. I’ll even try to give a specific about my own husband – not to brag, but to help jog your own thoughts on little or big things to be thankful for.
Then I’ll invite you to share yours in the comments. Or if you’re a blogger, I invite you to join me for the month and put your post into the linky at the bottom of each post. You can even share on social media with the hashtag #thankshubs .
At the end of the month, I’ll show my husband the posts, maybe even print them off for him.
I invite you to think of a fun way to share them with your hubs as well!
So, who’s with me this month to bless and be thankful for our husbands? Leave a comment below if you’re in, even if you don’t think you can join every single day. See you November 1!
Frequently Asked Questions:
Why are we being thankful for our husbands and not for things in general, or for our kids?
Well, that’s a good question. I was thinking how easy or easier it can be to be thankful in general or to be thankful for our kids who are super cute and adorable. But sometimes, being thankful for the man we married, especially thinking of something every day for a month can be a bit of a challenge. Plus, whatever we pay attention to grows, right? So let’s grow our thankfulness for our husbands by working out our thankfulness muscles.
What if the category for the day doesn’t apply to my husband, like I can’t think of anything to be thankful for or he doesn’t do that?
That’s a good question and I definitely was praying about that as I created the list of topics. I have a two-part idea:
One, find something in the subject area or a similar one that you could acknowledge on that day and be thankful for.
Two, pray a prayer of thanksgiving for this anyways. Our Great Big God is outside of time and He has a plan for this. So thank God for what He is doing in your husband in this area.
What are the topics so that I can work ahead or plan ahead if I’m a blogger?
O, another good question. The numbers at the beginning of the list are the date for that topic. And I really chose them in no particular order of importance.
