Marriage Monday: 30-Day Honor Your Husband Challenge

So it has been a while since I have participated in Marriage Monday, though I promise I still love my husband. *giggle* I sort of went no-meme for a while as I dealt with some things both physically and mentally and didn't feel like posting much. But I hopped over to Fruit in Season over the weekend and saw that Christine is hosting this new challenge that starts this week and as I heard an angelic choir from the heavens singing the Hallelujah Chorus, I thought to myself, "Self? Do It." (Yes, I talk to myself. No, I don't hear angelic choirs... but it would be cool, no?!)

Christine has said that we should give ourselves a list of goals each week to accomplish. Now, I'm *not* a goal-oriented person, so this might be hard... but I will try! Here are my goals for this upcoming week:

* Find and pull out my copy of The Power of a Praying Wife and start reading it again and praying for my husband daily again. I pray for him almost daily, but mostly prayers of protection. He needs more. I need more. This is a good goal. (Feel free to pray that I meet it! Do they have a Power of a Praying Bloggy Friend?)

* Have the house decent looking when he comes home from his very long business trip this week.

* Work hard on myself. This might seem like a selfish goal, but it's not. I already take really good care of him, but not so much myself. He really appreciates it when I try my best to make sure I eat enough daily and take care of me.

So those are my goals. They won't be all that easy for me, but hopefully I'll be able to accomplish them.

Do you want to join the 30-Day Honor Your Husband Challenge? If so, pop on over to Fruit in Season and say hi to Christine. If you haven't yet "met" her, just tell yourself, "Self? Do it." (And make sure to listen for that Hallelujah Chorus...)

My hubby likes when I take care of myself too. That should be on my list for next week! Thanks for joining the challenge, Crystal! I hope you and your hubby are blessed!

Those are wonderful goals you have set for yourself! Good luck with them! I'm trying to do more to take care of myself as well. It's easy to put everyone else first and get lost somewhere along the way! I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
