Socks and underwear on the floor don't matter anymore, it's much easier to put them away than to complain.
Give in to the indispensable toilet paper roll. If it is placed in the holder upside down, smile…and be grateful for the effort.
Arriving a little early for church is a priority for me. My husband, on the other hand, meanders slowly to the car, goes back to get his Bible intentionally, and bends down to tie his shoe before opening the car door… with a wink in his eye. I take a deep breath and pray.
Co-pays and credit cards are the senseless suction cups that squeeze our bank accounts to the brink of impossibility. Pay only what you can.
Accept the situation you are in right now. Don't overload your children with past regrets, but start each day with a new perspective.
You can hate the sin some people display, but love them as God's unique creations.
When your husband chooses to wear his favorite torn up T-shirt and baggy pants, emphasize his muscular build and how your choice would fit better.
If a diabetic diet is what the doctor ordered, make it easier for your husband by serving his tasteless dinner in your silky bathrobe.
Many people save for a vacation. We go whether we have the money or not; time is not on our side!
When the TV football season takes your husband away from you, do your best to SEEM interested, it works well when you want to watch your favorite Hallmark movie later.
For the domestically challenged: When you hang a dress shirt up, please put the armholes around the outer points of the hangar and don't leave the "headless horseman" crooked. I end up fixing the awkward display myself, but glad it wasn’t dumped on the floor.
Men should have the same enthusiasm about shopping as women do. I just can't understand why so many fall asleep on the mall couches.
Don't try to change your husband, change yourself first and good things will follow!
A benefit from growing older; squabbles dissipate quickly because you can't remember anything anyway!
On the serious side, stand firm in the Word of God to get you through anything; His truth is unshakeable and he knows what we are reallythinking (Hebrews 4:12).
