Helped By Dr. Phil




I caught the "Dr. Phil Show" this afternoon and watched slacked-jawed as a husband who claimed to follow Christian principals, attempted to justify demeaning his children and wife, and verbally and physically abusing his wife. He said he was "forced" to have extra-marital affairs because his wife was not meeting his physical needs. To Dr. Phil's credit, he quickly explained the Christian teaching of being a husband and then in true Dr. Phil style, went about giving the guy "a clue." Go Dr. Phil!

I tell you all this to say.....I LOVE MY MAN! While watching this, I just fell more in love with the man God gave me and I intend to let him know it very well when he gets home this evening! I realize that sometimes I am so used to what I have, that I don't realize what I don't have.

This week I will let my man know OFTEN how grateful I am that he is obedient to God's Word in fulfilling the role of husband and father in our home and I will do my best to make that job as easy as possible for him.

Good ole' Dr. Phil! I am glad that I was not home to see that husband... I might be paying to replace my inlaws TV!

May God bless you and your man this week!

My husband was having a field day with this guy...and I just smiled... because it was not but a life ago, with my previous husband that I lived (he was not a christian) in these belief's...

I feel so honored and protected by my beautiful husband....

Amen, sister! I so often forget that I could be married to an insensitive clod who has no love for me or the Word of God! Thanks for reminding me that I should always be thankful for what I have.

Yes, I think my man could use a little reminder that I love him and appreciate who God gave me.

Georgia Pecan coffee can be found at a fantastic place called Fresh Market. They have the most incredible things in this store and I can not go there too often or I spend more than I should. But, my sweet sister in law gave me a gift card--thus guilt free spending. I also got a pound of Creme Brulee coffee. It is also fabulous with half n half.
Any time you are in the area---please stop by. I love having a good talk over a good cup. :)
