Ladies, have I mentioned before how we set the mood in our homes? But what about in our marriages? Do we set the mood here as well? Why of course we do!!! Let’s talk ab bit about how we can set the mood.
We hold a lot of cards in our marriage. How we come across to our husbands often times will effect how they will react to us. If we react to them harshly then surprise they are going to approach us defensively. If we approach them lovingly then they are more than likely going to come to us in the same manner. Our men are called to lead our homes but they pick up a lot of cues from us.
In Everyday Life:
Here is something I have noticed. If I greet my husband with a pleasant attitude when he gets home, most of the time he will also respond back in the same manner. If I greet him with a long list of complains then there is an instant bad mood. Now there are some days that this logic doesn’t work. But in these cases if things in the home are running smooth his mood will soon change.
Flirts A Bit:
Want your man t show you a bit of attention and interest? Then don’t be afraid to carry yourself the way you want to be treated. Remember how before you got married you would flirt? Just because you are married doesn’t mean this should stop. In fact you need to continue to make that flirting magic happen. Wear something cute…..Bat your eyes…..Brush his skin as you walk by him… Smile at him…. Look deep into his eyes…. Give him a kiss that last longer than and 8 yr old peck. When you do these things you remind him that you are still very much so attracted to him and that he is the center of your desire. This also sends him an open invitation to do these things back to you!
In A Disagreement:
If we ourselves go into a disagreement with claws out then our men are going to do the same. Instead approach the situation with a calm nature. Practice the listening techniques I discussed earlier this month at Marriage, Motherhood and Missions. We can defuse a situation by the way we approach it ourselves.
The fact of the matter is that we set the moods in our homes. Surprisingly with our children and our husbands. So instead of complaining about his attitude check to see how yours is.
