Generous wife tip - A peaceful homecoming

Excellent tip from Lori today. No one wants to be close to someone who always brings bad news.

Sometimes when I listen to the news I am discouraged by all the bad news.  I wonder, however, if I am not guilty of being a "bad news bearer" when my husband walks in the door.  Do I barrage him with all the bad news of my day or do I make his homecoming a welcoming, peaceful experience?
     So as a tip for today, when your husband arrives home, listen to yourself and begin to replace bad news with pleasant words and good news.  Unless it is an absolute emergency, wait for a good time to address any challenging issues.

     Anxiety in the heart of a man weighs it down, but a good word makes it glad. Proverbs 12:25  NAS

Think generous!  Lori <><

  1. Hee Hee... I try to wait, but my husband sees it on my face and barrages me with questions so that I have to tell him, even though he doesn't want to hear it until later! I guess I need to work on a game face.

    Thanks for your blog! Amy Ellen

  2. That's a mark of a good connection in marriage when your spouse can see something is amiss. But keep on trying, as you rightly said maybe working on a game face might help.

    You're very welcome! So glad you enjoy it.
