Our Prayers Matter

Sometimes it's easy for me to forget that my husband has bad days like I do. He works in Law Enforcement and is around a lot negative. I stay home all day teaching, rearing, and home-making. I can have days where I am so tired and grumpy. When my husband sees that happening, he tries to give me a break. I never doubt that he prays for me too. I can feel his prayers and know He intercedes on my behalf. I have been trying to be more intentional about recognizing when he has had a bad day. Respecting him in that regard is very important in our marriage. I have started praying for his day with more compassion.

A Three Fold Cord- Praying For Your Husband

As I was sewing a bedspread back together that got torn, the Holy Spirit brought something to my mind about our marriages. Many times in marriage we can become torn apart through the storms we go through. We can drift apart due to the struggles we face every day.  There will be times when we don't see eye to eye with our husband or vice versa. We can began to feel distant from our husband.

Shifting Our Focus

It's been a wild month for us,but so full of blessings. God has done some amazing things for us. We so do not deserve them,but He loves us. Have you ever wanted something really bad? Well, you get it and then you find something to complain about. I must confess, I have done it recently. It reminds me of the Israelite people. They would beg God for something and when He gave it to them,they complained and murmured against him. I find myself much like them.

Who Is the Greatest Among Us?

As we close out the month of June I would like to talk again about Fathers. I am blessed with a wonderful husband who is an awesome Father to our 3 boys. In today's society, it is not easy being a Father. With so much negativity towards men, it makes it hard to keep your head up. Even in the Christian circles, men are not looked at in a positive light. There is not a perfect man on this earth anymore,we are all flawed humans. As wives, we have a great role to fill. A role that can change the way our children treat others and more importantly, their future spouse. We have the opportunity to serve our husbands. This is a huge blessing we should bestow on our men.

Come read the rest as I share at The Imperfect Wives today.

God's Peace,It Makes Things Possible

There are times in our life when we do things that we know is the right thing,but they are not the easy things to do. Sometimes it may be things that we want or may not want. It may be things that excite us or even make us anxious. But we know it is what God wants us to do. Anyone ever been there?

Doing the Unlikely For Our Husband

Have you ever done something for your husband that wasn't quiet your cup of tea? Maybe riding motorcycles, hunting, golfing,or going to an art museum. Last summer I did something I have never done... I went on a canoeing trip. It was all in the name of love,for my husband of course. Our Pastor's wife set up a canoe trip for the younger couples in our church. My husband had off and mentioned he would like us to go. I sort of panicked inwardly. I kept seeing myself flipping out of the canoe and a huge alligator coming after me or hitting my head on the rocks. When it came down to the wire I decided I should do it.

You Matter!!

When I first became a Mother, I was elated. I wasn't sure what to do or what was in store,but I knew it had to be awesome. I knew my babies would be just the sweetest (and they were,except for waking Mama up randomly at night) and I would be known as supermom! I had a rude awakening. I thought that people would just see what good I would do as a Mother who chose to stay at home with her babies. I just knew the world would see the important role of a Wife and Mother. Or would they?
