Love of Husband

Over the years I have learned a lot about marriage but I am always learning.  I knew how important it was to respect your husband and have always tried to do that.  Have to admit I am much more successful these days than I use to be but I am also much more aware when I am not showing respect.  Kind of stands out like a neon light.  Respect may be important for the man than love.  I think they like being loved too.  Ephesians 5:33 teaches us that husbands are to love their wives and wives are to respect their husbands.  In Titus 2:4 the older women are told to teach the younger women to love their husbands and children.  In this verse the word love means love of a husband, male companion of the wife.  So, it means,"the special affection of a woman for her lifetime mate, her husband, embracing him as her "calling"(stewardship) from God.  Gives me more to think about! God teach me more.

Thinking About Egypt

Recently I have found myself somewhat concerned about Israel's welfare with all the unrest in the Middle East.  I thought, "Oh no, Israel has lost the supporting relationship from Egypt!" Then God spoke again as I have been listening to Isaiah being read. Don't go to Egypt, don't trust in their horses or chariots, is what it was saying over and over again! Trust in God! A good reminder who we are to put our trust in for Israel and for ME.

Here We Go Again

Painting our dining room.  My husband says painting is relaxing.  I'm glad he thinks so.  When we moved into this house we decided on red walls for two reasons. One reason was my sister use to have a red wall in her house and I loved it.  The other reason is I collect chickens and roosters. No, not real ones!  Hence, the red.  But as I have lived here I realize this dining room begs for a pale green to help bring the outdoors in.  You see, our dining room looks out onto our yard, where there is suppose to be a flower garden. That's another story... we'll get our flowers later.  Paint is not so expensive and it sure brings a nice change. Now, what to do about our floors in the dining room, kitchen and hallway to the shower... I love change, at least in our home.

Then There's God

Why do I get so tired? Sometimes I feel so down, tired, discouraged, tired of fighting the fight... then there's God. He somehow in some mysterious way when I am not looking picks me up. I have found that just talking to Him, plain and simple, good and bad (He knows anyway) that somehow, sometime when I am not paying attention He does something. Then things seem ok, and good again and I can look outward again.  Thank you God!

"Casting all your cares upon Him, for He careth for you" ... not just words... real, powerful and freeing! 1Peter5:7
