Cooking up some love (Completing him Challenge)


Cooking Up Some Love In the Kitchen!

We are to week #6 of the "Completing Him" Marriage Challenge and this week's challenge is: Make your husband a priority. Ask him what his favorite dinner, dessert and drink are. Be sure to serve him all three one night this week. Bonus: cook his favorite dishes all week long!

Why would I make such a challenge and how is it significant? Here's a couple reasons:

1. Often times, meal plans can end up catering to what the children like. This is one time that we are going to take our husband's preferences above everyone else's preferences - including our own!

2. On special occasions like Father's Day and our husband's birthday, our husband becomes the center of attention. This is our chance to make him a priority for no reason other than we love him. Wouldn't we appreciate it if they did this for us? Let's go first, and make a special day just for our husband's. Get into it - maybe make it a surprise and get the children involved. Take just one evening and shower him with kisses, hugs, and all his favorites. It's not good to spoil your children - but it's okay to spoil (and I do mean bless!) your husband!

3. Take this opportunity to display our love. Titus 2:3-4 says the older women are to teach the younger women to "love their husbands". Selfishness hinders love. Take the time to give thoughtful care to how you can exhibit love to your husband.

I am reminded of the 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman. In his book, the premise is that we all experience love differently. Some need words of affirmation, others need quality time, gifts, acts of service or physical touch.
As we go through these challenges, we will hit on each one of these love languages. There are some husbands who this challenge is going to speak volumes of love to. So let's get busy in the kitchen ladies.

Marriage Mondays
I remember the scene as if it were yesterday. My boyfriend, down on one knee, asking the life-changing question, "Will you marry me?" I didn't hesitate to give him my response, "Yes!" In the space of just a few moments, my status changed. I was transformed from a young lady who was single, to one pledged to marry the man of her dreams. Not something I took lightly.

Sparkling in the sunlight, my beautiful engagement ring indicated that I was spoken for and would soon share my life with the one who had placed it on my finger. How romantic! But along with the romance came the reality. Life is difficult. A successful marriage would require hard work.
Marriage. Instituted by God Himself. A husband and wife working together as a team, to bring more honor and glory to God than they could as individuals. Look to the Bible and allow God to make your marriage a success!

Isn't it interesting how you don't think it's possible to love him any more than you do on your special day and then you find out you're completely wrong?! It's good to be wrong sometimes isn't it?

Enjoy the challenge!

Many Blessings,
M.
