I watched a video by Francis and Lisa Chan last night it was mostly Lisa talking to wives on how we are to act, what our purpose is to be as wives, and how we can please God by following the steps he has so carefully layed out for us in his word. I have been married 25 years the end of this month and I really don't think I ever really have understood what the role of the wife truly is. I just knew I wanted to be married have children be a mother and have my perfect little family with a husband who would adore me and I him but then real life sets in and it might not always look the way in which you envisioned your life turning out. God loves us so much and has laid out for us how we should strive to be with his help of course but because of our humaness and sinfulness we choose to do things our way even when things aren't working out the way we would like. As women we have a unique ministry as wives. We are to be helpmates to our husbands we are to be an extension of them. We are to honor and respect our husbands even when we don't feel like it or feel they deserve it. We are to be submissive to them I loved the way Lisa said that our goal is to honor God because our husbands may not always motivate or act in a way that would cause you to want to honor and submit to him. God has given us to our husbands to be his helpmate it is not good for him to be alone. We are to be his cheerleader we are to be for him not against him. The safest place for you to be is in the will of God and the will of God is to submit to your husband. We have to learn to die to ourselves. She said she loves submission because it is what sets christian women apart from the world. It is a way we can attract people to Christ by the way we treat our husbands. We are to live in humility. We are to first live in total submission to God. The world will saturate us with women need their own identity, power but our identity is in Christ and we don't need to have power over our husbands. If you would like to see this video go to google and search Francis and Lisa Chan Christ Centered Relationships 2. This gives us alot to think on and I pray you will be changed by it as I have been.

Yes, we are having some rough weather today. It makes for a nice day to just get cozy with a book and hang out inside. I still have a few things that need to get done number 1 being I have to get to the grocery store at some point before 3:30 when my dear hubby needs the car to go to work. If the weather could just hold off for a little bit so I could get my errands done then everything will be fine. We have been going through some trying times in our family at present but we are putting our trust and faith in Jesus to see us through. We covet your prayers my husband has found a job and I am trying to either get my Premier Jewelry Business back up and running or find some par time work in order to bring in some much needed extra income. I hope today finds you and your family doing well.

I am in need of prayer. I feel as if I have done a disservice to my youngest son in that I don't feel I have parented him the way in which I parented my two older children. There is a 10 year difference in age between him and my oldest son. He was an after vasectomy baby a total suprise gift. I feel I have not emersed him enough in Gods word. I have not always shown him a good example of Christ and how to treat others with love and acceptance. He is my responsibility and I have not gone about raising him with the same drive I did my others. He has a very controlling personality and he can be very loving when he wants to. He is very guarded with his emotions when around others unless it is dislike or disdain he seems to show that very clearly to others. I am going to start today praying for him trying to be a better example. I am going to try to find a good Bible Study that we can do together that teaches love of others. I need to be more disciplined with him in what he is allowing into his mind. I myself need to do the same for myself. I love all my children and I want to raise them in a way that pleases my Heavenly Father.
