Tea Party: Favors

These bookmarks will be favors at our tea party coming up! One side is a list of practical things to do to encourage and bless your husband and the other side is filled with ideas and Scripture to pray for him.

Ideas to Bless your Husband!
Create a picnic lunch ~ take it to his work and enjoy it with him!
Write a note in his lunch or mail a card to his office.
Choose a Scripture verse that encourages you or reminds you of him and share it with him.
Shower him with affection.
Surprise him with a book or CD he has been wanting – just because you love him!
Make a favorite meal or dessert. Have a cheerful and content attitude. When he leaves for work, call and leave a message on his voice mail to greet him when he arrives.
Find out more about a hobby of his and talk to him about it.
Appreciate and encourage him.

This is such a wonderful idea. To be honest I don't think of and do things to encourage my husband enough.

Blessings
