Marriage Monday: The Traveling Wife! {Link up}

Welcome back to Marriage Monday!  I'm so glad you've joined me as we focus on strengthening and promoting godly marriages, both in our nation and in our own backyards!

In recent weeks, I've been exploring the various characteristics of a godly wife.  If you missed it, last Monday I shared some thoughts on being a Supportive Wife.

I arrived home about 8 pm last night, much to the delight of my family!  After being on Pacific time for 10 days and returning to East coast time, my body is a little confused about when to sleep, when to wake up and when to eat!!  

I was hoping to work on a draft for my Marriage Monday post yesterday on the plane, but instead, I spent most of the flight talking to an intriguing woman who sat beside me on the flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta. (I plan to share more about that later in the week!)  Lastnight was spent connecting with my children and hearing about my oldest son's mission trip to Haiti, and this morning, I slept in and enjoyed a leisurely breakfast with my family.  So, unfortunately, I don't have any inspiring thoughts to share with you this morning for Marriage Monday.  How about you share with me instead?  Please leave me a comment and share how you've built up your marriage this past week, and as always, you are welcomed to link up any marriage related posts. I'll be back next week with my godly wife series!  

Your Turn to Share:

I'd love to hear how you've encouraged, admired, supported, or blessed your husband this week!  Please leave a comment here on my blog or over on my Facebook page, so we might all be encouraged! You may also email me at if you wish to share a private testimony.

If you were blessed or encouraged by this post, please consider sharing it with your friends on Facebook or other social media sites.  Thank you!

I'd love to have you link up your blog to mine!  Please link up any past or present posts related to Christian marriage.  Don't forget to link back to my blog!  Thanks!

Traveling parents are hard on a family. It's my husband who travels!

Beth said...

I pray for my marriage daily and am learning, ever so slowly, to let God's love flow through me to my husband {and all I encounter, for that matter}. Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever be consistent with this ... this "living out my love," Elizabeth! But I'm grateful for your reminder to be intentional with the building up of my marriage. Thanks also for hosting!

Beth ~ I love your statement about "living out my love" for your husband! That's a great thought to be challenged with as we seek to intentionally be excellent wives for our husbands!!

Em ~ I'm not usuallly the one who travels! I am very much a home-body! Traveling across the USA by myself definitely stretched me out of my comfort zone!! But, I had a blessed trip!

I left him a note on the mirror expressing my thanks for his hard work and how I understand that his long hours are an act of love.

I love that Michelle!! Thanks for sharing! When I got home, my husband had written "I love you" with lipstick on my bathroom mirror! Wasn't that sweet?? :) He had also tried to send me roses to the hotel where I was staying in CA, but sadly, they never arrived. :(

I have to say that I love you did the important things instead of preparing a blog post for today! I'm proud of you for that. I'm a little slow linking up this week but wanted to anyway :)
