Razzleberry Bookmark.....

Good evening everyone...

The day got away from me but I wanted to post something anyway! The idea for these corner bookmarks has been around for a long, long time but this is the first time I've made one. I really liked it and think that if my club girls are interested, I may hold a class for them to make one as well.

Have a good evening!

Completing Him Challenge....Assess Your Marriage!

Our summer Completing Him Challenge from Women Living Well is drawing to a close today and I for one am so glad I participated! The truth is that we can get so caught up in our daily lives that we forget to acknowledge the many blessings we are surrounded with every day. If you weren't able to join us, I would highly recommend going through your own 8 Week Challenge and really take the time to make your relationship a priority! Here's a recap of all the challenges:

1. Remember your dating days and what made you fall in love in the first place.

2. Remember your sacred vows.

3. Remember to ask your husband how you can pray for him daily.

4. Remember to tell your husband how you admire him.

5. Remember to keep your priorities in line.

6. Remember to follow your husband's lead and vision for your family.

7. Remember to respect your husband.

8. Remember to kiss him like you mean it!

As for how our marriage went this summer, I'm happy to report that it is strong. The summer challenge came just as we were entering our "God Watch" season with a job loss. God was faithful and provided well for us for the the 7 weeks we were without work and Chris got a new job last Monday! While finances can be a sticky spot for some couples, we have worked really hard to stay on the same page with similar goals and expectations and constantly communicate our needs and desires in this area.

Thank you Courtney for challenging me this way and I look forward to future challenges!

Completing Him Challenge....Kiss Him Like You Mean It!

It's hard to believe that this is the final challenge of the, where did time go?

Today's challenge is to kiss your man like you mean it! And while I will not disclose many details of our physical lives, I will say that we both make it a priority to at least kiss each other in the morning and the evening. We also tell the other one that we love them daily.

I think it's important to remember that each man and woman is different in this area. While some couples are extremely physical and touch each other constantly, some may be a little more reserved and that's okay! I would highly recommend talking to your spouse about his desires and to even share your thoughts on the subject. There is no other person in your life that you share this kind of intimacy with....let go and enjoy it!

"My beloved is mine, and I am his."
Song of Songs 2:16 KJV

Have a fantastic week!

Last night was Stamp Club night and in the spirit of it being a hot August night, we made these "cool" cards. While the idea has been around for some time, it was a big hit here and one I think my ladies really enjoyed.

Completing Him Challenge.....Respect Your Husband!

It's week number 8 already in our summer challenge! This week is a good one and because Courtney said it so well, I'm going to use her words instead of mine.

Ephesians 5:33 says "Each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself and the wife must respect her husband."

God's command to wives is to respect our husband's.....unconditionally. Here are a few universal ways a wife can disrespect her husband...

1. The wife rolling her eyes at him.

2. The wife criticizing him.

3. The wife complaining to her mother or girlfriends about his flaws.

4. The wife not respecting his knowledge, opinions or decisions.

5. The wife nagging him or assuming the worst in his actions.

6. The wife using sarcasm to communicate bitterness.

7. The wife disrespecting his work, protection, provision or leadership.

8. The wife disrespecting his need for physical intimacy.

This week take some time to assess your husband's respect-o-meter. Ask him what makes him feel respected and disrespected. And then weed out those disrespectful thoughts and attitudes and exchange them for respectful ones.

And respect your husband for who God is and His commands. You respect your husband because of who you are and your character. You respect your husband because you have been given grace and you freely give it. You respect your husband because of your vows at the marriage alter. And your respect your husband because because you indeed love him and desire to please him.

I couldn't have said it better myself Courtney!

Have a good week!
