So I thought that this would be a good time to talk about how walking on this path to being more organized can help your love life.
I know you are probably thinking, “How could being organized help my love life?!” Well, let me give you some examples. When you and I are more organized:
1. We are less stressful. We have more time to be patient and kind to those in our life.
2. We are more positive in our day to day chores because we are setting priorities, setting up chore lists and getting things done.
3. We have more time to take care of ourselves, restoring each part of our body, soul and spirit which then spills off to our loved ones.
4. We are able to spend time with the Lord which gives us a spirit full of His Spirit which fills us with His Love!
You might also have the time this month to think of the traits in your spouse (or significant loved one) that you admire – and then share how you love this about them! Here are some hints to help you:
Do you respect him; are you thankful for him so you show gratitude to him; do you appreciate how much he helps you; their positive outlook; their kindness; how they put the family first; how they care for the children; how they serve you and others; their loyalty to you; how hard they work for the family; that he listens to you and communicates with you; how his love for His Lord is reflected in everything he does and is such a wonderful example for your children.
Manna from Heaven
“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you.” Ephesians 5: 1-2
Food is not love! Find better ways to say “I love you”. When foods are used to reward kids and show affection, they may start using food to cope with stress or other emotions. Offer hugs, praise, and attention instead of food treats. Better yet, a family hug!
