Beautiful Work

Let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands…. Psalm 90:17a

Slow to speak….really slow. April 28, 2009

Filed under: Wife-ing — Leah @ 6:00 am

I talk a lot and I like to analyze people and situations..and then I like to “fix” the problems I see.  When these traits are mixed the result can be a icky mess of harsh words directed right at the person I love the most: my husband!  Not good.  Not good at all!

SO, what do I do instead of inadvertently breaking my husband down word by word…I TRY REALLY HARD to shut my mouth.  Each time I choose to listen, rather than speak, I give myself an opportunity to encourage him when I do choose to speak.

By choosing my words more carefully I am making the choice to respect my husband in my speech, thoughts, and actions.

And this is something I KNOW he appreciates.  :-)
