Am I Showing Love?


Today’s topic At The Well is about LOVE. A topic we moms know fully well. Or don’t we?

There are two questions posted for us to ponder upon..
Are you showing love to your family, or are you finding yourself more and more often entertaining selfishness and self pity?

If you are entertaining your flesh, what can you do today to change that and make your home a place of love and contentment?

Sometimes, when we are asked if we love our spouse and our kids, the answer YES automatically comes out of us. We dont think about it anymore because we are used to it. But today’s post is asking us to check our hearts and our actions.

When we are serving our family, do we do it with LOVE or just as an obligation? I am guilty that a lot of times, I am doing my obligation just because it is my responsibility. I am a task or list oriented person. Much of my tasks are done so that I can take it off the “must do” list. Love is not evident in the touch or in the chore.

There are also days that I battle selfishness and self-pity. I know that it is a lie that can hinder me from becoming a more loving mom and wife to my hubby. With today’s post, I am challenge to check my heart and attitude. I am to be more loving and more prayerful. The suggestion from At The Well is very timely. As I do a chore, I am challenging myself to pray for my hubby or my kids. In doing so, my heart is doing the action out of love and I am in the will of God.

I challenge you today, to check your hearts with me.

    Oh Chris, I love the new look here! WOo hoo. It has been a while since I've visited!

    I agree. I wrote about this too. So often, I resent having to pick up after my husband. God change my heart!

    Love!

  3. I sometimes look at my role as a mother and wife as obligation.
    For me, I see Obligation as a human outlook, our driving force in order to survive.

    With love, its found within. It keeps us intact as one unit(family)through heart, mind, body and soul.Whether we have nothing in life or we're blessed with everything.

  4. My husband and our kids are my life! I wouldn't be who I am without them. I'm always showing love. Thanks for your post.

  5. i love this post. there must be love in our heart and soul.

  6. Marriages,like people,have lives that change & mature.Things are never so simple,but I do believe that as long as love is there & that we have the key to it is the all important thing.'ve been married w/ the same man for 20 years & soon to be 21st & I love serving my kids & my husband w/ love & not just as an obligation only & 'm really happy & contented doing this.Serving my husband & my kids w/ all my love,made me feel like for once in my life,I wouldn't work so hard to be happy…
