It’s been an interesting week for me.
I realized if I was going to be intentional about encouraging and uplifting words, I needed to look for and speak about the good in my husband.
It’s so easy to get cranky over how my husband does the dishes (different, not wrong). Instead, I need to see that he’s being thoughtful and actually doing the dishes (when it’s usually a part of my household chores)!
Encouraging words come from a gracious heart and mind.
The habit of speaking encouraging words is established with choice and ongoing effort.
