R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. ~Ephesians 5:33

Titus 2:3-5 is asking this question... What do you do or say that shows your man that he's the thang in your life?
How do you make him feel special, valued, necessary, even heroic?
What mistakes have you made that made your loved one feel crummy, unimportant, and disrespected?



This week I:

Made him breakfast on Saturday morning, biscuits, bacon, scrambled eggs and coffee, delivered it to him in bed, along with the morning paper.

Did not pester him while he was sitting in front of the TV watching the College Baseball playoff games each night for the last week.

Walked the dog so he did not have to move from his spot in front of the College Baseball Playoff games.

Visit others who are sharing their practical tips here and share some of yours too over here at Titus 2:3-5

Thanks for participating!

That breakfast must've made your hubby feel pretty darn special. And I know from experience that it is not easy to leave our men alone when they're absorbed in something on the big black screen... A girlfriend of mine says that to honour our husbands is to 'act in the opposite spirit' during those times when we would rather nag, natter, or complain. Not that you wanted to complain (but I probably would have, lol). :)

I'm going to take that first tip to heart - nothing says 'I love you' like a big manly breakfast!

FYI, your links to me in your post aren't working.

I think "not nagging" is one of the best things we can do. It says, "I respect who you are and HOW you are." GREAT thoughts!

I'll be linking tonight.
