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.
