Note to self: As a wife I have the opportunity to create a home that either supports or crushes my husband. I can make our house a haven of rest and peace, or a place of anxiety, struggle, dissension. I can choose to be affirming or critical. I can teach my children to honor and obey their father, or abandon them to their disobedience and suffer. I can be open and willing to meet my husband’s needs, or ignore them and also suffer. I can abolish ugly words in the home or be discouraged by them. I have a choice, but I have to act every day.
I choose my marriage. I choose my husband. Every day.
