A Kinder Do Over

July 10, 2013

in the generous life

The other day I realized I was being a bit short with my husband.

He wasn’t being rude or mean or anything, he was just being … inconvenient.

I had to check myself. My behavior isn’t heavily about what others do. It’s about me and who I choose to be, how I choose to act and speak.

So, deep breath, little prayer, and a do over with a kinder voice.

Kind words leave nice echoes.   Author Unknown

Nice post! Be kind and the world will be kind to you! Change your attitude and be optimistic about life! :) What is important is obeying God and He commands for me to love, serve, and please my husband without any conditions. Don’t risk tearing apart your family. Set your eyes on the Lord and receive everything He has already given you. Then rejoice and be glad for this is the day that the Lord hath made!

Visiting you from the Happy Wives Club Link Up.

Thanks for linking up with BHE Marriage Moments Mondays! You are absolutely right. Yesterday my husband was “getting on my nerves” so to speak. I said something not so kind, but shortly after I felt guilty. I immediately apologized, smiled, and gave him a big kiss. Then I proceeded to linger in his arms. Later on that day, he said something again that annoyed me. But this time I remembered – I choose to be annoyed or not annoyed. So I took a deep breath, and gave him some kisses again, and told him kindly how I’d appreciate it if he would stop x, y, and z. Kind words have a much more pleasant effect than negative or mean words.
