Strap it on
Our friend Tom Harmon uses this phrase, any time he’s getting ready to take something “tough” on. Next week, in the midst of Christmas prep, something will happen that will mean little to most folks, but to those in this house, it will be a big deal. Jeff and I will celebrate 24 yrs of marriage!! (He married me when I was VERY young.) 😉
Because of this, I have been thinking – considering this makes me an older woman, officially (the gray hairs didn’t count, because y’all couldn’t see them) and have decided to take on a monumental task. I’ve decided to spend the next week sharing my heart with younger woman (which is likely to be all y’all) 😀 on what I’ve learned about being a Godly wife.
NOW – I have been toying over and over and over with whether or not to keep the comments open or closed. (I still haven’t decided) Here’s why –
I LOVE interacting with you, gleaning from your wisdom and hearing your hearts – BUT I am SOOOPER DOOOPER busy this week starting a new job, as well as holiday prep and getting my crew ready for the Holy Walk this weekend and beau coup other things going on right now.
Because of the amount of stuff on my plate, I don’t have time to take on major discussions debating complementarian/egalitarian/veterinarian/totalitarian/ octogenarian/Marianthelibrarian or any other “-arian” aspect of marriage EXCEPT Clarkarian.
These are my thoughts – things Father has shown me or the things I have gleaned from the Word. They are not based upon teaching from other sources, they are from years of hard work, tears spent, loads of laughs and much prayer. There is nothing erudite about this, it is not steeped in academia but rather suffused in reality. Lots and lots of reality.
If you disagree with me, I will love you anyway and hope you will do the same for me. If you agree with me – I will love you anyway and hope you will do the same for me. 😀
Take it as you will – cause I’m gonna strap it on! 😀 😀
