Shall we do a challenge?

Ever since the 14 Day Love and Respect Challenge ended, I've kind of missed having a little "task" to do each day for the hubby. So, I found a 30-Day Husband Encouragement Challenge at Revive Our Hearts. I'm going to give it a go! Are you in?

Here is the challenge for the next 30 days -

You can't say anything negative about your your husband, or to anyone else.
I know it sounds terrible, but this is going to be hard! Sometimes it's nice to vent about those little things that just drive you crazy...but...I'm going to try really, really hard : )

Say something that you admire or appreciate about your your husband...and to someone else.
Easy. I admire his loyalty to his friends, family and God. I appreciate that he always looks out for our best interest and always tries to do the right thing. He's a great man.

To help you get started, have you ever thanked your husband for "choosing you" above all other women? He found you attractive as a person, and appreciated you. Though many circumstances in your marriage may have changed, let your husband know that you are glad God led you together, and that you want to be a blessing to him for the rest of your marriage.
I can't wait to tell him this tonight. It's so true, and so sweet. Sometimes I take it for granted that he knows all this stuff, and I forget to say things like this on a regular basis.

One of the best opportunities to express your gratitude is first thing in the morning. How do you greet your husband each morning? Is he confident in your love? Give him a wake up call that he'll never forget - a big "I love you" and an "I'm so glad I'm your wife!"
Hubby is usually sleeping when I leave each morning, but I always give him a little kiss on the cheek and tell him I love him and that I hope he has a wonderful morning. I tell him that I am so happy that I married him quite a bit...I don't think the morning would be the best time for his however, it might wake him up too much : )

"The heart of her husband safely trusts her; so he will have no lack of grain. She does him good and not evil all the days of her life." Proverbs 31:11-12
