ANYWAY.......if you have reached Day 6 of our "Say It For Seven Home Improvement Campaign" you might be interested to know what other women have discovered in SIX SHORT DAYS! These women gave me their permission to include their comments below:
- "Please don't laugh but on Day One I could not think of anything positive to say. This was a complete surprise to me. I started to thank God out loud for the basic things - 'Thank you that I can see, that I can walk, that i can hear; thank you for my vegetable garden.' I can see small changes in the atmosphere in our home. I am embarrassed to admit that it is related to the angry words I did not say for the past five days."
- "My fourteen year old daughter cried on Monday night because I sat her down and told her that I wanted her to know what I think is right with her. We spoke for five hours . I think it has changed our relationship completely for good. I never saw how negatively I speak to her. She is a good kid. Now she knows. Thank you."
- "Tuesday night, as we were cleaning up after dinner, my nine year old son said, 'Mom, I want to take a moment to tell you that you make excellent brownies.' He was echoing the way I began saying good things to him, 'Jason, I want to take a moment'
- "I thought this was a simplistic idea but I thought 'What the h---. I'll give it a try.' In four days, I can see the cloud of gloom and doom leaving our home. Yesterday (day 5) my husband said, 'You seem like you used to be when we met in college.' Everything seems light and less stressful. I guess I am writing to say something good to Mrs. Older - 'Thanks'.
If you are having trouble thinking of something good to say, you can simply repeat these words from Psalm 145:
"I will exalt you my God and King, and praise your name forever and ever. I will praise you every day; yes I will praise you forever... I will meditate on your majestic, glorious splendor and your wonderful miracles. ...for your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule throughout all generations....The Lord always keeps his promises; he is gracious in all he does. The Lord helps the fallen and lifts those bent beneath their loads... I will praise the Lord and may everyone on earth bless his holy name forever and ever."
Thank you to the wives who regularly WRITE TO ME... LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW.
Love you all,
