We just celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary. It is hard to believe, fourteen years! This is a true testament of God.
I look at the picture above and I think back to what I was thinking on our wedding day. I can just giggle at what I thought marriage would be. Let's just say that
Each year has gotten better and I am so thankful that we have never stopped fighting to make our marriage work. But this doesn't mean that my husband - nor I - am perfect. There are things that I would like to change in my husband and vice versa. Sometimes I believe that change in my husband must occur through me. Kind of like, the Holy Spirit needs my help!
I read this quote from Ruth Graham, the wife of evangelist Billy Graham, on this subject.
Tell your husband the positive and God the negative.So much wisdom.
Mrs. Graham is not telling wives to put up a facade and stop being honest with their husbands. She is just reminding us to let the Holy Spirit do His job.
Don't be rain drops in your husband's life and cause him to wish he lived on the corner of a housetop! Yes, this is biblical - Proverbs 27:15 and 21:9.
Do you struggle desiring to be your husband's Holy Spirit?
