Travis got on my nerves today. (He doesn’t know it, but he will now!) Bear with me here, I think you’ll like the outcome. I won’t go into detail why I was a little put out with him. (Come on, ladies, you know we’re all “put out” every now and then) Then, it came to me so strongly that there are many, many women out there who would love to have a husband at home for the evening sitting on the couch. (There, now you know what was getting on my nerves. 🙂 ) Many men are out at the bar tonight. I believe with all my heart that my husband would be one of those if it were not for God. There are many wives wondering when and if the daddy of their children is coming home tonight. They have no idea where he is or where he has been. Then there are those husbands that never lift a finger and let the wife make a living for them while they become couch potatoes.
I made a concious effort to major on the good things today. My husband emptied and reloaded the dishwasher! When I came home from WOW, the kids were happy after spending the evening with daddy (even though they hadn’t had a bath and it was bed time). He worked hard today. He remembers trash day — usually. He cooks some really yummy Italian food. He is a good listener. Of course, there’s much more, but I won’t bore you. Most importantly, he loves God and leads us to Him.
We wives with God-fearing husbands have so much to be thankful for!
