Some happily married older women shared the following wise words. May I suggest if you're not already putting these principles into practice in your home that you start right away and ask the Lord to help you? It will make a difference in your life! --Tamara

1. "My own behavior, not my husband's is all that I am responsible for before God."

2. "Anyone can make demands. It takes a strong person to spend time satisfying another person's needs."

3. "I am a daughter of the King" (See Ephesians 1:4,5)

4. "If I am sullen and grouchy at home, but gracious and friendly at church, work, and the garden club, there is something wrong in my life and I need to ask God to show me how to correct it."

5. "I must not allow my good attitude to depend on something or somebody. It is ridiculous for a born-again woman to allow her happiness to depend on such erratic things as how a three-year old behaves today; whether or not a husband is cranky or friendly; or if there is enough money to pay every bill. My attitude should be dependent only on a continuing, stable relationship with God, who loves me and provides for me at all times, night and day, no matter what."

6. "I cannot excuse my bad nature or habits by telling others, 'That is just the way I am.' There is no place in the Bible that condones crabbiness, persistent hostility, stubbornness, nasty tempers, impatience, unkindness, negativeness, quarrelsomeness, or lack of self-control, no matter how they were acquired or how deprived my childhood was."

--From _400 Creative Ways to Say I Love You_ by Alice Chapman

Tamara

Wonderful advice Smile !

Thank you Tamara for taking a moment to share some of your inspirations. God is doing a work in my life right now. He is teaching me that He loves me. Boy, it is so good. I feel so humbled at the fact that He is still working on my selfish old heart. But He is! I have recently learned #3!! Praise God!


Love in Jesus,

Hi Pam! It's so good to "chat" with you again --I've missed you! Isn't that an awesome revelation that just gets deeper and deeper through our journey with Jesus --that His love of us is so amazing --so complete --so impossible to describe!

Ahhh...to bask in the love of Jesus! That's my prayer for all of us each day!

With love and hugs,
Tamara


Blessings,
Tamara

I showed them to my dd (13). This so much dovetails with what we have been talking about for a time now, how what you are as a Christian isn't how you act on Sunday, but how you act Monday-Saturday, and not how you act around your church friends, but how you act around your family!

These tips are great! I need to work on #4 & #5. I didn't realize that other people felt this way. I find myself regularly getting overwhelmed with the children's constant needs - all overlapping one another. That brings out my not-so-good side. That is something that God is touching on right now. . .


Blessings!

As soon as I read this, I knew it to be true for me! I so often let others steal my joy by their attitudes and their behaviour! I need to stand firmly on God's love for me and let everything else just pass on by! You are so right - it IS ridiculous!
