Tip: Family First, Flowers for your Bride.
Ministry takes time. A lot of time. Sometimes in the midst of our ministry we forget about our first ministry, our families. If you are married, your first ministry is to your family.
Our tip for today is the first in a short series that will help to remind us to put our family first. YWTD #62 is, Bring your wife flowers. (Or, bring your husband his favorite snack.)
My wife often reminds of the days when I would bring home a bouquet of cut flowers and how much she loved it. It's a simple gesture of love and "I'm thinking of you."
It was often on payday. I would cash my little check, swing by the local grocery store, grab a bouquet of $5 flowers, and rush home to my beautiful wife. I don't know exactly what it is about flowers that makes women smile. What I do know is, women like to know that they are loved.
So surprise your wife with a simple bouquet of flowers, and let her know that she is loved.
Of course, if you are the wife, and you need to bring something home for your hubby, I suggest picking up his favorite snack. I love when my wife surprises me with crackers, cheese, and pepperoni. Or a box of Little Debbie Swish Rolls. Or a package of Swedish Fish. When I see those items, I know she was thinking of me that day.
Husband or wife...LOVE YOUR SPOUSE.
