Marriage Challenge week #5- Priorities

     This week's challenge is to ask our hubby about the top 5 priorities that he feels is most important. First of all if you are wondering where this marriage challenge came from here is the website. http://www.womenlivingwell.org/ . Feel free to jump in and start anytime. It will be such a blessing to you as well as to your marriage. I know I have been discovering how much our marriage means to us and to God.
        So you may be wondering why we need to ask him about what are his priorities and what is most important to him. Such as...a clean house, clean laundry, making his lunch for work, taking care of the finances or sex. My husband once told one of his friends, "If my wife ain't happy...nobody is".. I had to laugh and though that can be true at times. I think "If the husband ain't happy...neither will the wife or kids". You may be wondering why I would say that. Well it says in God's word, that the husband should be head of the house. Did you ever work for a boss who was horrible and never happy?  I have and it leaves the employees drained and with no motivation. Well the boss is head of  the company..just has a husband is head of the house. So our goals should be to make our husbands happy so that the house runs smoothly (most of the time LOL) and in turn our house will be pleasant to live in and for others to visit. I know one of the things my husband loves is when I pack his lunch for work. He tells me that he loves what I give him and the ideas I come up with ,when he does it himself it's just not the same. So ask your hubby what top 5 things make him happy that you do and do them JOYFULLY!! You'll be glad you did.

  2. I'm doing this challenge as well! I love that you added that we should do these things joyfully! It sucks when people 'cave' and just do things half-heartily.
