It’s that time of year again and with Thanksgiving just around the corner, this is the perfect time to take inventory of our lives and the perfect time to focus on the amazing and life changing effects of thankfulness, appreciation and gratitude.
Did you know that thankfulness has a magnetic quality about it? Think about it. Who would you rather spend an afternoon with…someone who complained about their family and life or someone who expressed thankfulness for the things and people in their lives?
Complaining is the product of unthankfulness.
The word ‘appreciation’ means to be thankful and express admiration. Another definition for it is “to grow or appreciate in value.” As you appreciate life, you become more valuable – both to yourself and others.
Do you want to “appreciate” and increase in value in the eyes of your husband? You can-through thankfulness.
You might try to tell me that you don’t have much to be thankful for with your husband, but I would say- search your heart and ask the Lord to show you all that He’s blessed you with.
So tell him, write him, drop him an email and let him know what you are sincerly thankful for about him. It will do your heart (and his) good.
I’m praying for our marriages.
