Help Meet or Constant Dripping?

Is this how it is in your home?
 This is the way that it should be!

 I am ashamed to say that there are a lot of times that my husband is ready to go back to work minutes after getting home. I am often so tired from a long day of cleaning, schooling, changing diapers and dealing with 3 kids under 5, that I snap when I finally have him home.

Proverbs 19:13 says
 " a quarrelsome wife is as annoying as constant dripping."

I am sad to confess that some days this verse very much describes me. I am so focused on me and what I need. I find things to argue and fuss about.
Proverbs 31:12
"She brings him good, not harm, 
all the days of her life."

I like this verse much better! I want to bring my husband good. I want him to be glad to come home to our family. 

I am so thankful that God has given me a husband that loves me and is forgiving.

Please help me to be a help meet to my husband. 
Help me to bring him good and not harm. 
Please forgive me for the times that I am quarrelsome. 
Thank you for my husband and the blessing that he is to my family!
 Help me to honor him. 
In Jesus name,

Happy Monday Mommas!

That's right it's Monday! Another week filled with stuff. 
Some of that stuff is important. 
There are appointments and schedules. Life is busy. 

Our schedules can be so overwhelming. Soon, our days are filled to the brim. 
Are we leaving room for time with Him?

Before you go into your new week, have you prayed?
Have you committed your week to HIM?
Have you asked for His guidance throughout the week ahead?

I think the reason so many people dread Mondays is because they are forgetting the most important part.
 I think that Mondays should be exciting days for Christians. 
We have just had a day of rest, a day to worship our King. Most of us have heard a challenging Word from our pastors on how to be a better follower of Christ. We should be excited to enter our mission field. 

Today, before you start your week ahead remember:
He has special plans for you today. Are you willing to allow Him to lead you? Or are your plans overshadowing His?
This is the day that He made. Are you rejoicing in another day? Or grumbling that the weekend is gone?

Join me in celebrating another gift from the Father!
Happy Monday, Mommas! 
I pray that you have wonderfully blessed day!
