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 <><
