I have the most wonderful husband. He fixes my breakfast every morning and it’s usually bacon and eggs, oatmeal or a fruit smoothie. I just love it.
I hardly ever come home that he hasn’t done the dishes from the day and started dinner.
That leaves me free to take care of the dogs and start the laundry. It’s a team effort.
Occasionally when I come home the sink will be full of dishes and dinner hasn’t been started and my first inclination is to say…G-R-E-A-T, now I’ve got to clean this mess up, plus cook dinner, plus do the laundry, plus take care of the dogs. My pity party just goes on and on.
Our relationship over the years has taught me this isn’t normal and I should be asking…Is he ok? It’s very easy to take these wonderful things my husband does on a daily basis for granted.
Isn’t that they way we treat God? Oh, He’s there if I should need something. That Bible will be on the same shelf it’s been on for years if I should need it. Church…I’ll get around to it.
I believe we live in a culture where we take God for granted! He’s always there and always will be but what about your relationship with Him? Do you know Him and His character?
Greg and I have been married for 37 years and we’ve had many ups and downs but because we know each other, shared in those times and built a solid relationship with each other and with God, we’ve weathered those storms.
Remind me dear Lord; never to take my loved ones and especially…You, for granted! ~Debra
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not over come it.
There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”(John1:1-14<NIV)
