my sweet hubby pointed out recently that I was complaining about something (and I'm sure I was), although I didn't see it as complaining because in my mind I thought I was explaining!
It's better to live alone in the desert than with a quarrelsome, complaining wife.
It's better to live alone in the corner of an attic than with a quarrelsome wife in a lovely home.
A quarrelsome wife is as annoying as constant dripping on a rainy day.
This was meant to be somewhat funny but it also holds the truth that we, as wives, should be ready to listen to our husband's as they try to lead and guide us as Christ would. If you're like me and probably most everybody, you want to immediately defend and justify yourself. But, what it HOPEfully will do is help me be more aware the next time I open my mouth to try to EXPLAIN something!
HOPE everybody has a Wonderful Wednesday!
