A couple of months ago, I wrote about the next verse in Proverbs 31 and about our husbands being respected. I was struggling to come up with a craft idea for this verse so asked you for some ideas!
Here was the comment that really jumped out at me (from Ami):
I really enjoyed contemplating crafts for this. I'm in such a busy mothering stage (similar to you) that I'm definitely concerned with trying to love my husband and care for him above the kids, and you know that's so hard to do!
This verse really encourages an attitude and I agree it's hard to think of a craft. I think something that reminds me to check my attitude would be more beneficial than something I could make for him. I think a little box that reminds me to respect him and spread that respect around, filled with a stash of notes of compliments, encouragement, prayer, love, and humor all ready to be stuck in his lunch, luggage, computer bag or whatever. If they're ready to go, maybe I would actually leave him notes regularly!
Praying for him encourages respect, too. I printed off a monthly prayer calendar for my husband with correlating Bible verses and I have that hanging in my kitchen cabinet.
One more thing that is fun and would put his co-workers in a good mood would be sending goodies to work with him occasionally. That is if your husband likes that, of course, because not everyone does!

I loved her idea of having little notes ready to go! So, one Saturday morning when I woke up quite early - I asked God to help me create some notes we could share with our husbands! A few blanks are included as well so you can come up with your own. Thanks for sharing your idea, Ami!
Enjoy blessing and respecting your husband!!
