So, I was reading a post this morning (find it here) about loving our husbands in the “ordinary” things – those every day things that we do but that can be done with a true servant’s heart..and lots of love…to really express our love to our hubbies. It was a great post and I began thinking about ordinary ways to love my own hubbie. It didn’t take long for my old flesh to chime in with something like “he won’t even notice!” You mean, if I keep all the ironing done, or serve his favorite meal, or any one of many other things….he might not immediately stand and recognize me as the sweetest wife ever???! (Yes, my ole flesh is every bit that sarcastic!) I was quickly convicted that “it is not about me or my being recognized.”
Just a few minutes later, I came across another post about behind the scene servants – simply serving others and being a blessing without recognition. Of course, God knows and He recognizes. I was beginning to sense a message.
Two minutes later, a devotion arrived in my inbox. I haven’t even read it yet but its entitled “Is Not About You.” Ok. I got it. Lesson learned.
Does this type of thing every happen to you? Or am I just that thick-headed it takes three (or more) promptings to get the point.:)
