25 ways to communicate respect to your husband

25 ways to communicate respect to your Husband What does respectful living look like? Here are 25 ways you can communicate respect to your spouse without uttering a word. If you’ll make it your habit to do these things, the next time you tell your husband how much you respect him, he won’t have to wonder if you really mean it. Choose Joy It’s true: A happy wife makes a happy life. Please don’t use moodiness as an attempt to manipulate your man, but in all things rejoice, because that’s the right thing to do. (1 Thessaonians 5:16; Philippians 4:4) Honor His Wishes Give weight to what your husband thinks is important. Make those things a priority that matter most to him, whether it’s having dinner ready when he gets home from work or keeping the house tidy or limiting computer time. Don’t make him ask twice. (Philippians 2:4) Give Him Your Undivided Attention Yes, I know that women are masters of multi-tasking, but when your husband is speaking to you, make a point to lay other tasks aside, look into his eyes, and listen to what he is saying with the goal of understanding and remembering his words. Don’t Interrupt Have you ever been around a person who won’t let you finish a sentence? That gets old fast. Even if you think you already know what your husband is going to say, allowing him to say it without cutting him off mid-sentence shows both respect and common courtesy. Emphasize His Good Points Sure, he has his faults (as do you), but dwelling on them will only make you (both) miserable. Choose instead to focus on those qualities in your husband that you most admire. (Philippians 4:8) Pray for Him Ruth Graham advises wives to “tell your mate the positive, and tell God the negative.” Take your concerns to God. Faithfully lift up your husband in prayer every day, and you will likely notice a transformation not only in him, but in yourself, as well. (Philipians 4:6-7; 1 Thessalonians 5:17) Don’t Nag Your husband is a grown man, so don’t treat him like a two-year-old. Leave room for God to work. You are not the Holy Spirit, so do not try to do His job. Be Thankful Cultivate an attitude of gratitude. Don’t take your husband for granted. Be appreciative for everything he does for you, whether big or small. Always say thank you. (1 Thessalonians 5:18; Ephesians 5:20) Smile at Him Smiles spread happiness. Smiles have even been shown to create happiness. Smiles are contagious. And a smile makes any woman more beautiful. Respond Physically Did you know that the way you respond (or don’t respond) to your husband’s romantic overtures has a profound effect on his self-confidence? Don’t slap him away when he tries to hug you or make excuses when he’s in the mood. Your enthusiastic cooperation and reciprocation will not only assure him of your love, but will make him feel well-respected, too. (1 Corinthians 7:3-5) Eyes Only for Him Don’t compare your husband unfavorably to other men, real or imaginary. It is neither fair nor respectful and will only breed trouble and discontent. Avoid watching movies or reading books that might cause you to stumble in this area, as well. (Psalm 19:14; Proverbs 4:23) Kiss Him Goodbye I once read about a study done in Germany which found that men whose wives kissed them goodbye every morning were more successful than those who weren’t kissed. Success and respect often go hand-in-hand, so be sure to send him off right, and don’t forget to greet him with a kiss when he returns home, for good measure. (2 Corinthians 13:12) Prepare His Favorite Foods Although the rest of the family is not overly-fond of spaghetti, my husband loves it, so I try to make it at least two or three times a month as a way to honor him. Next time you’re planning meals, give special consideration to your husband’s preferences. (Proverbs 31:14-15) Cherish Togetherness I love to sit near my husband, whether at home or away. Our church shares potluck dinners every Sunday afternoon, and although the men and women normally sit separately to visit, I like to position myself close enough to my husband that I can listen to the conversation, as I think everything he says is so interesting. At home, I’ll take my book or handwork to whatever room in the house he’s working in, just to be close to him, because I enjoy his company, even when neither of us is talking. Don’t Complain Nobody wants to be around a whiner or complainer. It is grating on the nerves. Remember the serenity prayer: accept the things you can’t change, courageously change the things you can, seek wisdom to know the difference. (Philippians 2:14) Resist the Urge to Correct I know one wife whose spouse can’t tell a story without her stopping him fifteen times to correct inconsequential details: “It wasn’t Monday evening, it was Monday afternoon…. It wasn’t blue, it was turquoise…. He didn’t ride the bus, he took a shuttle.” Please. Please. Please. Don’t ever do that to your husband — or to anyone else, for that matter! (Proverbs 17:28) Dress to Please Him Take care of your appearance. Choose clothes your husband finds flattering, both in public and around the house. Keep the House Tidy To the best of your abilities, try to maintain a clean and orderly home. Seek to make it a haven of rest for your entire family. (Proverbs 31:27) Be Content Do not pressure your husband to keep up with the Jonses. Take satisfaction in the lifestyle he is able to provide for you. (1 Timothy 6:6-10; Hebrews 13:5) Take His Advice Do not dismiss his opinions lightly, especially when you’ve asked for his counsel in the first place. Make every effort to follow your husband’s advice. Admire Him Voiced compliments and heartfelt praise are always welcome, but you should also make it your habit to just look at your husband in a respectful, appreciative way. Think kind thoughts toward him. He’ll be able to see the admiration in your eyes. (Luke 6:45) Protect His Name Honor your husband in the way you speak of him to family and friends. Guard his reputation and do not let minor disagreements at home cause you to speak ill of him in public. Live in such a way that it will be obvious to others why your husband married you in the first place. (Proverbs 12:4; 22:1) Forgive His Shortcomings In the words of Ruth Bell Graham, “A happy marriage is the union of two good forgivers.” Please do not hold grudges against your husband. Do not allow a root of bitterness or resentment find a home in your heart. Forgive your husband freely, as Christ has forgiven you. (Mark 11:25; Matthew 18:21-35) Don’t Argue You are not always right, and you do not always have to have the last word. Be the first to say, “I’m sorry.” Be willing to accept the blame. It takes two to argue, so “abandon a quarrel before it breaks out.” (Proverbs 17:14; 21:19; 25:24) Follow His Lead If you want your husband to lead, you must be willing to follow. Neither a body nor a family can function well with two heads. Learn to defer to your husband’s wishes and let final decisions rest with him. (Ephesians 5:22-24) Proverbs 18:22 tells us, “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.” Do these 25 things consistently, and your husband will never have trouble believing that fact. UPDATE: After posting the above suggestions for wives, I received many requests for a similar guide for husbands. You can now find just such a list posted on my husband’s blog: 25 Ways to Show Your Wife You Love Her. Read it and let him know what you think.

how to ice proof your car windows. Expecting frost overnight? Just fill a spray bottle with three parts vinegar to one part water and spray on your car windows at night. In the morning, they should be clear of the icy mess. How does it work? Vinegar contains acetic acid, which raises the melting point of water – preventing water from freezing. What to do if you wake up to an already frozen car? Just spray the mixture on your window and watch it melt. how to prevent your car doors from freezing shut using cooking spray. Spray cooking spray on the rubber seals around car doors and rub it in with a paper towel, “Doors freeze when snow melts into the seals during the day, and then freezes at night,” says Robert Sinclair Jr. of AAA, The oils in the cooking spray prevent water from melting into the rubber in the first place.
A marshmallow keeps brown sugar soft, hot vinegar can revive paintbrushes, and many other household tips.
Hot Vinegar, Brown Sugar, Households Items, Sugar Soft, Ketchup Bottle, Great Tips, Coffee Filters, Pancakes Batter, Households Tips
reduce, reuse and recycle! common household items turned into something useful//coffee filters as polishers, marshmallows to keep brown sugar soft, ketchup bottles as batter dispensers, the list goes on i can't take it!!!!
1.) Use Coffee Filters for More Than Just Coffee. Coffee filters are multi-purpose. Grab them when in need of a substitute for something you don't have. They're great for cleaning glass and computer monitors. Detox your stinky shoes by filling a filter with baking soda, tying off with a rubber band and placing in your sneakers. Or you can even use it as a dryer sheet by placing a few drops of fabric softener on the filter, rubbing together, than folding in half. 2.) Sheet Storage. Store your sheet sets together in a pillow case. Not only does this keep the entire set together, but it makes for neater and more compact storage. 3.) DIY Watering Can. Take an old laundry detergent container and drill holes in the lid for an instant watering can that not only allows you to recycle a disposable container, but is sturdy enough to hold up to continued use. Plus there are no worries about water sloshing out! 4.) Keep Brown Sugar Soft. Use a marshmallow in your brown sugar to keep it soft. 5.) Ketchup Bottle as Pancake Batter Dispenser. Repurpose an empty ketchup bottle into a pancake batter dispenser and pour the right amount every time! It's also less messy and it makes it easier for making smiley face pancakes for the kids! 6.) Organize Upright. Create more room for your flatware by storing it upright rather than laying it down. I am constantly running out of room for my knives, forks and spoons and they often spill over into the next one's cubby. This solves that problem and allows you add more silverware to your collection for those holiday get togethers. 7.) Create a Kitchen Command Center. Keep all of your scheduling and menu planning in one place with a well organized kitchen command center. Your command center should feature a menu planning board, dry erase note board, magnet boards, and chore charts. 8.) Doggy Drawer. The dog doesn't live in the garage, so why store his food there? Instead use a deep drawer for keeping your pup's kibble along with a handy scoop for when it's time to dish out dinner. 9.) Nix Stains with Pantry Staples. Treat a variety of common clothing stains with products you have in your pantry. Egg yolk and luke warm water will remove a coffee stain. Just allow to set for a minute or two, then rinse. Get rid of blood stains, but immersing the fabric in very cold water, then sprinkingly heavily with salt. Scrub with soap and rinse. Plus more! 10.) Lemon as Cutting Board Cleaner. Use a fresh cut lemon to clean your wood and plastic cutting boards. Squeeze the lemon juice on your board and allow to sit for 20 minutes before rinsing. Voila! 11.) Use Baking Soda for Everything. Baking soda is the perfect household staple as it's great for everything from cleaning to deodorizing to hygiene. Use it in the fridge to keep odors away, as a mouthwash rinse, to clean grills, and even as part of your laundry routine. 12.) Revive Old Paintbrushes. You can revive old paint brushes by soaking them in hot vinegar then washing with regular old soap and water. This removes old paint and softens the bristles. Do you have other great tips and ideas for organizing, cleaning, cooking, or just getting things done? I'd love for you to share them in the comments! Looking for unique ways to organize your office?

egg freshness- helpful hints
How to check an egg's freshness. #cooking #eggs #recipes #food
How to Tell if an Egg is Bad Place the egg into a bowl of cold water. The water level should be about 2 times higher than the egg. Fresh eggs will sink to the bottom of the bowl and probably lie on their sides. Slightly older eggs (about one week) will lie on the bottom but bob slightly. If the egg balances on its smallest tip, with the large tip reaching for the top, it's probably close to three weeks old. Eggs that float at the surface are bad and should not be consumed
egg freshness. I never can remember if sinking means it's a fresh egg or a bad egg.
