Life has gotten really busy. There are moments when I have to remind myself if I am coming or going. Anyone else like this? Every time I think that things are going to slow down about 10 more things seem to pop up. I know you moms know what I am talking about. Busying busy because we are caring for our family or spreading God’s word is a good thing. However we need to make sure that we are making time for our husbands as well.
It is so easy to get wrapped up in the day to day operations. Add in ministries and other out of home ministries then you are talking stretching yourself thin.Now one of the biggest mistakes we can make is to assume that our husbands are going to be able to handle the fact that we just no time for them. In fact if you are to that point now I strongly encourage you to rethink some priorities. You see God may give us ministries and He asks us to reach out to others but He does not condone us neglecting our responsibilities to our husbands. They need our attention just as much as everything else does. It is very important to remember that if we intend to grow strong healthy marriages.
Things We Can Do Even When We Are Busy:
- Little notes: Notes to your man can be powerful. Now these shouldn’t be your typical I need milk and egg notes. Instead make sure these notes say how much you appreciate him, how much you love him or anything of that nature. Just don’t include a to do list in that little note.
- Whip up his favorite treat: When is the last time you made your husband’s favorite meal or dessert? I am a firm believer that the way to a man’s heart is through his tummy. Make him his favorite meal and I bet that will remind him that he is king of the castle.
- Schedule a date night: Now for us we can’t always go out. Actually we rarely go out. However, we have learned to adapt. We get the kids in bed, turn off the phone ringer, shut off the computer and focus on each other. There are a number of things you can do. You can watch movies, listen to music, have a picnic in doors, look at the stars from your porch, eat dinner together or hey play board games. Then main thing is make time for just the two of you. Long after the kids are gone you will still be married to your man. So it would be a great idea to stay connected. What ever it is make sure you are making time for your husband with no distractions.
- Send him a message: I spend a lot of time checking my emails, on FB and well just about all social media platforms. That is the joys of promoting an online ministry and not paying for a virtual assistant to do your work for you. So why not use these things for your marriage as well. Send your husband a little message online just to let him know you are thinking about him. If you do text messaging send him a message that way at some point during the day.
One thing to remember is that in all our efforts around our homes and with other people is that our husband’s deserve to be top priority. Keep the fire burning in your marriage and never forget to date your man. Remind him that even though you maybe the mother of his children you are still his wife. How can you make time for your husband today?
