Caring for Him

03 September 2013

In August I shared my marriage goals with you all. This month I have one goal, I told Amberly last month that I was tempted to set easy goals but I knew that wound be cheating. Since I plan to continue to work on last months goals I just wanted to add to those. My marriage goal for the month of September is to care more for my husband to serve him in every way possible. I know that sounds pretty vague and probably really easy but I already know it's not going to be.

My husband is very selfless and spends so much of his time caring for my needs and I really want to return that kindness and love to him. Some times I can be pretty selfish and it's completely unintentional, but like I stated in this post I get so wound up in my own issues that I am pretty blind to whatever he is experiencing. I had a conversation with Kalyn about wanting to be a woman who is intentional about all that I do, so here is where I want to start. This month I would like to speak to my husband's heart by showing him that I care about his needs, his hopes, his desires - I just want him to know that I care deeply for him.

I do not have a strategy just yet on how I will accomplish this but I plan to take it one day at a time. I look forward to serving him in love and not getting so wrapped up in my own needs that his fall to the wayside.

Do you have any goals for your marriage or courtship? I would love to hear about them in the comments below.

  1. I want to remember that Rob is going through this infertility stuff too. Often times I focus on my struggle with it all, but I need to remember that he is struggling too. I have to remember to check on him too. He is battling this as well.

  2. I think this is great! And I don't think it's too vague at all. You realize that your husband does a lot for you and you want to do the same for him! I can't wait to see how this goes for you! Thanks for linking up again!

  3. Beautiful :) I sometimes find it hard to focus on my husbands needs too...I'm more likely to make my needs known than he is. Good for you for working towards this goal, and for the reminder to the rest of us that it's important!

  4. Good for you, dear! Being intentional is so key in a relationship! I love reading about the goals you have.

  5. Thank you so much! I needed to read this so I can remember that there is the man I love involved in this journey too. It also reminded me that I can give more that I am doing right now.

  6. Great idea! Lately, I've been trying to keep the mindset to do things with my husband as if we were still dating. We've been together for 11 years and married for 7. So that means even if I'm home all day on a Saturday, choosing not to just sit around in stretchy pants, throwing on something cute, and planning something for us so he doesn't have to think about it or make decisions...he makes too many all week long. Even if we are just going to the movies and lunch, it's good to think of it as if we were dating 11 years ago....definitely adds some motivation to keep things fresh and fun for him and I both!

  7. YES! This is a fabulous post! I really am always so inspired by your goals! I wish you the best this month and know that I am always here for you, friend! Thanks for linking up with us!
