Wives, there is nothing better that we can do for our children then LOVE God and their Daddy with all of our hearts! If at all possible make times to be with your husband as often as you can. If you cannot go out for a little date, then at least plan some time chatting together on the couch just the two of you! If you can go out, dress up for your DATE, get something cheap (an ice cream cone to share if need be) but HAVE SOME time to chat, share your heart, discuss the kids, the future, etc. These times are so helpful to continue building your relationship as husband and wife.
~ Phillip took me to a fun little homey restaurant that we found here. It sort of reminds us of a Cracker Barrel's atmosphere. (There's even a little country type store in the back too. =)

Due to having a WONDERFUL Moma who loves being a homemaker and has many talents in that line... I L.O.V.E. decorating our home for each new season and cooking and baking. Ladies, our meals don't have to be a 7 course meal, and you don't have to be kin to "Martha Stewart"...but the PRESENTATION of our meals makes a lot of difference!
Now there are times that I put the pans on the table (SHHHHHHHHH!!! Please DO NOT tell my Moma! ;-) but when I have a little extra time, I like to put the chips or rolls in a paper-lined basket, take the jelly out of the jars and put them in little bowls, take an extra minute to arrange the fruit or cookies on a plate, etc. This cheers up not just my heart...but my sweetheart and children take note too and love it!
We are making memories!
Children are imitators...So that means as Daddy and Mommy we need to make sure their "heros" are ones we/God wants them to imitate!! Whose blogs/FB pages are they surfing? Who are their close friends? My children are only allowed to go to certain blogs...for I've seen so many things on even "Holiness people's blogs" that I don't want our children to imitate!
May God help us as we LIVE THE JESUS LIFE, STICK TO THE BIBLE, and form their lives for HIM.
So....wives and Mommies...let's hold our heads up...For ours is a HIGH QUALITY JOB!
The pay is "out of this world!" =)
