The King is in the Castle!
When Erin, Andrew and Ali were very young we were learning about authority and obedience. We made crowns and I let them dress up as kings and queens. We learned several things about castles, knights, ladies, princesses and all manner of kingly things. We said things like, “yes, your majesty”, we played servant and master. When daddy would get home from work, I would announce, “The King is in the castle.” He would be seated in the seat of honor (the head of the table) and his food was served to him. It was great fun.
The interesting thing about that learning time is that I think I learned more than my kids. (Isn’t that how it goes with home education?)
I learned that my husband was indeed the king of our castle, and that he not only deserved the honor of that position, he relished it. He loved being pampered, served and most of all, honored.
Honor is treating others well because they are important.
For the next few posts, I want to discuss ways we can honor our husbands and show him how important he is. Hope you’ll stay tuned and add your ideas.
