Do you always like your husband? Let’s be honest here, no we don’t. I always love and respect my husband, but that doesn’t mean that I always like him. Like my grandmother says, “Some days I just want to hit him in the head with a frying pan.”
That is life. God never promised that our life would be simple, or easy. People aren’t perfect either. I wish I could say that my house was perfectly clean, my kids completely perfect, and that when my husband came home I was wearing pearls, high heels, and dressed to a tee with a fantastic 5 course meal waiting for him. But it doesn’t happen that way.
Most days, he comes home to me in yoga pants, hair pulled up, and the children (half dressed) destroying quicker than I can pick up. I’m sure there are days, when he would like to hit me with a frying pan. But that is a part of marriage. Marriage can be messy, ugly, bittersweet, and can sometimes really hurt your feelings. So here are a three things to pray about the next time you find yourself in the mist of an argument.
