Thoughts for Wives

 5.8.10




A friend of mine just posted this on her fb profile:

"I had to make that step (leaving fb) to get my priorities straight and to spend more time with my hubby who was going to bed alone too much lately....while I was on facebook.....ouch!..."

And Jamie also reminded us of this when she says,

"Because I remember as a young, engaged woman the anticipation that I felt, knowing that one day soon I would be able to go to bed with the man I loved each night and wake up with him each morning.  Oh, how I looked forward to that!  I dreamed of the intimate conversations we'd have, heads on our pillows, smiling and laughing as we reminisced about the day's happenings.  I could hardly wait for those evenings!

And so, still today (nearly 11 years later!), I try to continue to fan that same flame and look forward to our quiet time together in the evenings...We spend a few solo minutes reading a chapter in a book or checking emails, maybe posting a quick note to the blog or facebook, but then I remember...

We
need our special "pillow talk" time together.  And I still look forward to going to bed with the man I love every night and waking up with him each morning!"

 I have to say that lately I have been guilty of this, either checking my fb or writing a post is robbing me of this special "pillow talk" with the one I love.

So here I am,  following the example of other godly women, I will not be checking my fb at nights and I will journal here just as time permits.

My priorities should be straight at all times, and in doing so, I glorify my God, and honor my man.






An invitation, if you know someone who speaks Spanish, please refer them to our Spanish blog, Delicias A Tu Diestra Para Siempre, we (my sister and I) are posting an important series on what it means to be a modest woman.

P.S. Just in case you are wondering why I chose such a picture on this post, let me tell you...  I used this picture because it reminds of a time my husband and I spent together, and because I needed to remind myself that I  must build bridges of love between us.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
