Good Morning Ladies! We made it to Pigeon Forge last night. We had a great dinner and then relaxed at our suite, which is in my opinion nicer than our room we stayed in at the Orpyland Hotel after our wedding reception. We are so blessed to be able to have this time together and such awesome accommodations.
Ladies, don't feel overwhelmed if you haven't been able to post over the last few days. Don't be discouraged. Just jump back in and pick up where you left off. Satan wants you to feel like it's too much to catch up but that's simply one of his many lies and schemes to keep you from growing closer to God and your husband.
Ok today's topic... Today's story brought tears to my eyes. What a powerful story of unconditional love. I know in my own thinking and mindset I would have been very frustrated if I were in the wife's shoes. What an amazing example of mirroring Christ's love story.
When I got married and even today I always thought being a good wife meant cooking, cleaning, laundry, being a domestic goddess so to speak! It is exhausting! It is a topic we have been discussing in counseling. It's actually a point of frustration for us. Justin keeps saying I want you to relax and take it easy today (this is usually over the weekend when he works) and I ignore his statement and go right into deep cleaning, grocery shopping, cooking, laundry, any and every task under the sun. I end the day being cranky and tired and he ends it being frustrated. While I do think God is all for me serving my husband and putting his needs before my own, but I think in our case it's extreme and over the top! I think I need to learn balance and come to the reality that is it okay to take time to relax and have down time.
What is one way you can be a good wife today?
For me I can take a deep breath and left all my millions of thoughts and stresses go and enjoy my husband. I can take the time today as we head out to the attractions and activities and just have fun with him, laughing and celebrating our time together.
