Good News

in the generous life

Sometimes when I listen to the news I am discouraged by all the bad news. I wonder, however, if I am not guilty of being a “bad news bearer” when my husband walks in the door. Do I barrage him with all the bad news of my day or do I make his homecoming a welcoming, peaceful experience?

So as a tip for today, when your husband arrives home, listen to yourself and begin to replace bad news with pleasant words and good news. Unless it is an absolute emergency, wait for a good time to address any challenging issues.

Anxiety in the heart of a man weighs it down, but a good word makes it glad. Proverbs 12:25 NAS

Be generous! Lori <><

One thing I like to do, especially if it has been a rough week (or month), is to write down in a journal the good things that happened that day, or the cute things the children said. So that when my husband gets home I can show him how our day was good. I find that when I look for the positive in the day it is so much easier to forget the bad stuff and everyone is much happier.
