At The Well Mondays-Welcoming Home Husband


How can we lay a welcome mat of love for our husbands after a long day of hard work?
How can we make our homes inviting places where our husband longs to be at the end of a long day?: Awesome topic, and questions this week. I changed mine a little bit, since we do not have children. When my husband comes home, I want him to know he is loved. He works very hard all day in a hot factory pouring scolding hot iron, and various other jobs. He does this for us, to provide our needs. I appreciate him so very much, and I always want him to know that. I always greet him at the door with huge hugs, kisses, and smiles. I have him a cold sprite with plenty of ice ready, he tends to get so dehydrated at work. I have his clean clothes laid out, and everything ready for him to take a shower. When he gets out of the shower, I have him a snack ready. I ask him how his day was, and listen to his every word. I make sure that he knows I missed him very much, and that I care about how his day was. I do not spend time on the phone, computer, or other things. He gets my full attention. This is his castle, he is the king of my heart. This queen will always lovingly welcome her king home with open arms.

Seriously, very good point, Denise. Our hubbies should be welcomed home with open arms. Thanks for the reminder.

I probably shouldn't let hubby see this either. :)
Some day I'm great at putting him first and serving him, others - all I want to do is talk about my day.

I always meet Honey Bear at the door with a smile, hug and kiss. He says it means so much to him. Such a little thing to do to show the head of the home that he is appreciated. Blessings,
Mama Bear

Hey, when I move back to Huntsville, I'll only be 2 1/2 hours from you. Maybe we could meet somewhere for lunch.
Love Ya!

Hi. I love this!!! And thanks for stopping by on Thankful Thursday...sorry I didn't get back to you. Just getting used to Wordpress and I thought the comments would be automatically posted and/or emailed to me...wrong! Gotta change the settings etc. Anyway, thanks, and this post of yours is great...underscores my long held belief in how the husband/wife relationship is meant by God to be!

Denise-This is so beautiful. What a wonderful home you must have to come home to. I feel the same way about my husband. I know some would call me crazy, but some nights when he works late (like the last 2 nights-til 3:oo A.M.,) I stay up late just to see hime when he comes home, because I love him so much, and I've missed him, and I want to know all about the exciting things he saw or got to work on that day. I still feel the same way I did when we were courting. You know that flutter of anticipation of just seeing him. I hope I always have that in my heart for him. I think we keep our love alive because we do make the effort. It keeps you tender towards one another. Hope you're having a wonderful day, and thank you for your encouragment with my testimony. ~Blessings!
