Yesterdays post highlighted Anton’s Air Force career. Many of you commented with gratitude for his service to our country. Thank you all for your appreciation and recognition of the dedication that Anton puts forth.
“Take your wife to work day” was written to encourage other wives in taking time to understand what it is that their husbands do outside of the home. For me, it’s not just about watching Anton work, going to work with him blesses me further in being able to stay at home. I get to actually see what he has to go through, (sometimes it’s not peachy), to make it possible for me to keep house. In ignorance, those of us who stay at home may sometimes have the ungrateful audacity to assume that we are “stuck at home all day while our husbands get to get away and have adult interaction.” Trust me, my husband would rather have the company of our children as opposed to the adults that he has to work with all day.
Ladies, if you are blessed to remain at home with or without children while your husband goes to work, shout joyful praises of thanks to God and then communicate to your loving husband the admiration you have for him as provider. Thank him! Find loving & creative ways that express your respect & gratitude for his daily sacrifice of leaving his family, who he’d much rather spend his day with, to enter a realm where he is unloved, disrespected and unappreciated.
“…and the wife must respect her husband.” Ephesians 5:22-33 NIV
