Please put the toliet seat DOWN!!!!

Honestly ladies, this has never bothered me.....Normally my husband does put it down, but when he forgets, it's no big deal. Now, what does bother me is when he________I'll let you fill in the blank......Whatever it is, IT drives us nuts. Don't you agree? HOWEVER, when I focus on those things, it makes me a little sad. This is not what I signed up for...This is not how it is portrayed in movies or in books, but this is real life...So I have made a decision, rather a commitment to think on those things that are positive. Hhhmmm, I think someone has suggested that uummm, Paul in his writings. Sooo, when my hubby does something "manly", I remember all that he does for me. For ex. right now as I am writing this, he is making dinner. Also, he helps me do laundry, clean the kitchen, he gives me money to spend on me. etc. He is a good guy. So my question is this ladies, When did having a good marriage not be enough? Instead of focusing on what we don't have or what he doesn't do, we ladies , need to focus on the good AND let HIM know it. I love my husband and appreciate him so much.. NO, he is not perfect and YES, he does things to annoy me, but uh, I guess I do the same to him...Let's make a choice to uplift our husbands, to respect them and talk good to them and about him to others. As much as I get annoyed with him I am more annoyed with women who bash and talk crudely to their husbands and about their husbands to others. Women, it is our job to encourage, respect, LOVE(do we need to be reminded of the Biblical definition of LOVE), and build up our husbands.... Let's not wait another moment....Let's begin today!!!!!!!!!!

When the Rubber Meets the Road

My last post I shared that God had given me peace.... Well now, it is being tested.. Why is it when God speaks to you, He always gives you a test??!!! LOL.. I guess it means that He thinks you can pass....
My husband has lost his job and my supervisor is trying to push me out of my job before my disability gets approved...So our finances are looking poorly right now....Our condo has not sold so now the bank is calling....
My faith is being tested....Will I keep my peace and trust in God
or will I allow my self to be distracted by the circumstances that
surround me....If I have any thing to do with it, I will keep my
eyes on Christ...He has promised that He will never leave me or
forsake me and that His peace is mine.... It will be hard but I
must do those things to keep my focus upward
Take care and until next time....Keep the faith
