The Wife Who is A Blessing, Day 27

Day 27

Happy Thanksgiving! I know today is a holiday and I want you to spend as much time with your family as possible. Today’s challenge is super simple. Be a blessing.

Proverbs 31:28 says, “Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.” 

Bless your husband today with your presence, your beauty, your smile, your attention, and your words. Be a light to your family and friends around you. Give glory to God. Be thankful and remember to count your blessings. 

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places…” Ephesians 1:3

I highly recommend you continue reading Ephesians 1 as it’s a great reminder of who we are in Christ and how He has blessed us.
