Lessons learnt in being a wife

It has been a week in education of young impressionable girls of the idealistic, optimistic and utterly stupid and untrue nature of their hopes and dreams of being a wife.

Being a wife means...
...Never letting go (even when you hate his guts sometimes)
...Staying alive (even though you'd rather die)
...Doing the dishes (even if its disgusting and gross)
...Talking (even in silent treatment mode)
...Calming down (even when you're super angry)
...Seeing the good in all he's doing (which is in reality a lot, although you translate it to be not)
...Keep going on being a wife (even if your whole being insists on giving up)

Now take a whack at it and see if you'll be the so-called wife that you believe God called you to be. My advice is: Stop being the young impressionable girl with idealistic, optimistic and stupid untrue hopes and dreams of being a wife and JUST BE ONE. Find comfort in God when you fail and keep finding comfort in Him cos you're gonna keep failing for the rest of your life.


  1. gosh erin. are you alright? keep looking to our everlasting God.

    27 Why do you say, O Jacob, and assert, O Israel,
    “My way is hidden from the LORD,
    And the justice due me [z]escapes the notice of my God”?
    28 Do you not know? Have you not heard?
    The Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth
    Does not become weary or tired.
    His understanding is inscrutable.
    29 He gives strength to the weary,
    And to him who lacks might He increases power.
    30 Though youths grow weary and tired,
    And vigorous young men stumble badly,
    31 Yet those who [aa]wait for the LORD
    Will gain new strength;
    They will [ab]mount up with [ac]wings like eagles,
    They will run and not get tired,
    They will walk and not become weary.

    Also, its really hard to imagine the hardness of it. and also really easy to imagine the hardness of it.

  2. *hugs* thanks for that erin.<3
