This is how society has begun marketing their products.
They make women look like smart bitches
men look like dumb beasts
instead of men and women being
women have somehow become
Macy and I love watching HGTV. Love it! We love watching House Hunters together and we pick which house we think the couple will buy. I remember this couple looking for a house. She wanted an updated kitchen and he wanted a garage. As I watched the show I thought to myself I would hate to be married to her…somehow the kitchen was more important than the garage and I admit that is how I would be thinking but her attitude was awful, she was being very “bitchy”. How is it that what we want is “more important” than what they want and what we feel is “more right” than what they feel.
I remember watching another episode and the wife was laughing at how even though they were looking together she was going to get her way no matter what. She said I always win. Her husband just sat there in silence not saying anything…just taking it.
I struggle with this myself. Just last summer Darin and I spent a lot of time working on our front yard. He had some specific things he wanted to do with it that I don’t know why but I didn’t like it. Something ugly just rose up in me! Ugly Ugly Ugly. As I was thinking about his ideas and getting increasingly more bothered the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, ” Julie, Darin lets you do whatever you want on the inside of the house, can you not let him have the front yard?
Resist the urge to be Bitch
Don’t sit their like your a Beast
Go get help
Professional help if need be
I do wonder how long those couples above on HGTV are going to last
When they get divorced
Because they will
They will have to sell
Those perfect homes
They bought on national television
It makes me wonder
If that lady’s new apartment
Because that is what she’ll be able to afford
After the divorce
Is going to have a nice kitchen in it
A nice kitchen is useless if you have no one to cook for
This frustrates me so much
But most importantly I guarantee you is frustrates the heart of God
The Lord detests dishonest scales,
but accurate weights find favor with Him.
When pride comes, then comes disgrace
but with humility comes wisdom
Some of you, all you have to do is tweek a couple things in your marriage and your good to go! Take care of it now!
One more thing I have learned over the years that is of supreme importance!
Your spouse must come 2nd only to Jesus!
There will always be needy people
and needy churches
people are always going to want more money
and want more of your time
but you only have one spouse
take care of them
put them first
often times in doing this
you are putting Jesus first
this goes for men and women
Things will not bode well for you if you do not do this
In other words if you do not change
I see apartment living in your near future
