God has appointed men in our lives, in the role of the husband for a reason. They are there as our protectors, our lovers, our providers, our best friends, and so much more. They have such a heavy burden on their shoulders on a daily basis, and that makes it so much more important for us to celebrate them on an everyday basis. To be true to him through your actions, and showing him that he is second only to God in your life.
Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, when they see your respectful and pure conduct. -1 Peter 3:1
To be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. -Titus 2:5
If you are someone who wants to celebrate your husband, here are a few ways to do so now.
1 | Remind him of your love in little ways
Leaving notes, baking his favorite goodies. Little things that you can do that remind him you love him are some of the best gifts you can give him. My husband and I write each other notes on napkins and stick them in each others lunches. Or leave sticky notes around the house. Either way, it brings a smile to our face.
2 | Talk about him
Tell your friends and family just how great he is. I cannot count the number of times I’ve heard wives talk about their husbands negatively (and I’ll admit, I’ve done it too) but I realized just how damaging that is to our relationship, and since our marriage I’ve attempted to speak nothing but positively about my husband. Remember that hearsay spreads quickly, so if you say something negatively about your husband realize that it will get back to him sooner than later. That goes for positive words as well. Which words would you want to know that your husband is saying about you?
3 | Praise him
Tell him to his face how proud you are of him. Being straight forward and direct is always a great way of letting your husband know how you feel. Say it with a smile on your face, and a hug for him. Let him know what character qualities (and physical qualities) that you love about him. Keep a running list on your bathroom mirror with a whiteboard marker. Let him know that he is still the man you fell in love with, and he will always be.
4 | Help him
Help him with chores, or do some of his chores while he works. Giving him time to relax when he comes home (and better yet, relax with you) is a great way to remind your husband that you cherish him.
5 | Surprise him
Surprising him in little ways or in big ways are always fun. We saved up last year and I surprised him with a vacation for his birthday. This year, we’re just going down to his parents, but getting to give him presents that he wouldn’t expect is fun too. Keeping him on his toes is always a good thing.
