Home Making

Anna reblogged this on A Bright Light Blog and commented:

Maybe the best thing we can give our husbands this Valentine's Holiday is a smile from the seat next to his? Let's pray for one another this Valentines. Pray for our marriages and our growth as wives. Lord, help us fix our eyes on You. We trust Your design for marriage and desire to be helpmeets according to Your will. We trust You to meet our need moment by moment, and in marriage, we have great big needs. Above all, help us to love our husbands deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sin. Teach us to offer hospitality to our men without grumbling and to use whatever gifts we have received from You to serve them, faithfully administering Your grace in all its various forms. Keep leading us Home. Hope you enjoy a repost from about this time last year. One of my favorites on marriage.
