Queen of the Castle: Week 24

For those of you playing along...(if you've just joined us you can get caught up a bit here) we are on week 24 of the book Queen of the Castle: 52 weeks of encouragement for the uninspired, domestically challenged or just plain tired homemaker.

Chapter 24 is titled "Father's Day". Lynne, the author, gives some great tips for wives to help promote a great bond between father and children. "First we need to spend lots of time together as a family, including some of it without mom there. Second, we wives need to honor our husbands at the head of the home (see Eph. 5:22-24 and 5:33). When the kids see us respect our husbands and look to them as leaders, they'll do the same." Very good advice! There is nothing better than a daddy's love and respect from his children. Let's remember this coming day to honor our husbands and teach our children to do the same!

The author gives a few tips for making your husband feel special: *Unroll the toilet paper a ways and write a message (encouraging, romantic, etc.), then roll it back up and wait for the discovery. Be careful to use a nonsmear pen (suggests her son!). *Pray for him, especially if he has a rough day ahead. *Run him a warm bath. Have the kiddos add bubbles and bring him a cold drink, a snack, a favorite book or magazine. (After 15 minutes, put a towel in the dryer so he can fluff in luxury.)

"Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips, nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children." Titus 2:3-5
