Heeding His Advice

I am not a fan of drama, especially in a public setting such as Facebook. Recently there was drama on Facebook among friends.  Normally I am able to turn my head and ignore it.  But on this particular day the drama made its way to my post, even though it had absolutely nothing to do with me.

I ignored it in the beginning but I kept getting these text notifications.  So I made a comment.  I do not want to go deep into details here, but my comment said this: Facebook is not the place for this.  We do not care why he missed, we just care that our friend did miss.  Well that got the other person fired up.

Later I told my husband and he told me I should have left it alone.  I was instantly upset and offended.  In my eyes, I didn't do anything wrong.  This person was causing ridiculous drama on my post.  How can my husband tell me to let it be?  But I didn't want to cause an argument with him so I just didn't respond, I sat there upset.

After awhile God spoke to me.  Whether or not my husband was right, I need to be willing to listen to his advice.  I should always trust my husband's advice.  He is the head of our home, my spiritual leader.  If I can't trust him in the smaller things like ignoring Facebook drama, how can I trust him in more important life issues?  Instead of getting upset with him, I should have fully listened to him, maybe had a conversation about what he thinks I should do if this were to come up again.

Are you willing to listen and heed your husband's advice?  When he tells you what he thinks is the right thing, are you going to get defensive and argue or will you be ready to listen and accept it?


Last Marriage Monday on Facebook I challenged each of you to wear something  your husband loves.  Maybe his favorite shirt on you, his favorite perfume or doing your hair a way he likes.  Our friend Candice said this: I totally did it.  I got out of mommy sweats and put on my jeans and a nice ruffly shirt.  Brushed my hair, did my makeup and put perfume on.  My husband got home and said, "Wow!  You look and smell great."  Loved the challenge.  And Katie said: A perfume that only I wear.  I have worn since we dated in high school.  Took a break for budget reasons, and this Christmas he bought me a bottle.  Today was a special day to use a squirt.

So today I am issuing the challenge again.  Today wear something that your husband loves.  It is a great way to show him you love him and care about what he likes.  Head over to our Facebook page and tell us what you wore for him and how he responded.

Sweet Blessings~
