Day Twenty-Six. Balancing Act.

30-Day Husband Encouragement Challenge for Wives


"And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men." Luke 2:52 
Is your husband striving for balance in his life? she asks.

I'm not supposed to say anything negative about The Husband during this challenge, right?  But you know what?  A lot of times I found that there hasn't been anything negative to say in the first place.  Which means that I have to work to find things to complain about.  Argh.

That fact hits home today especially.  The Husband has his faith.  His family.  His home.  His career.  He has some activities that he enjoys in his free time -- golf when he is able to get out, softball... I know he likes fishing but he hasn't been in years, sadly.  He likes watching sports.

The Husband is excellent at balancing his life.  Nothing ever consumes him to the point of dropping his focus on what is important.  I mean, he gets into things that he's interested in, yes.  But his priorities are straight.

Husband, thank you for keeping balance in your own life, and for being an example for me and for the girls in that.  Thank you for continuing to grow in your faith, continue to desire to only be a better husband and father, and to keep doing so well at your career.  I appreciate that about you, and love you for it.

We just had a sermon on this...it was talking about juggling balls. There are rubber balls (work, hobbies, etc) and glass balls, (faith, family, etc) and which ones are you careful not to drop. It was a really good one.
