    Day 6 - UGH!!!!!! Today is love is not irriatble. The task for today is to react to tough circumstances in my marriage in loving ways instead of with irritation.

    This is a hard one as I really want to slap him upside the head....

    So...
    ... 
    DD has had a runny nose for 2 days. She woke up last night and threw up a lot of mucus. I had txted DH if he could watch her as I have to work in old bridge. He said sure.

    When he got there she was still sleeping. At 730 DD got up. When we switched cars DD cried for him. I told him she misses him a lot.

    He txted me at 9 something saying she isn't sick and when I talked to him I offered to call the babysitter if he felt she was ok to go there. He told me no.

    But now he is making me feel incompetent and as I purposefully wanted to inconvenience him although he says he doesn't mind watching his daughter but today was his 1/2 day off and he goes to the gym.

    Now the old me would have said negative things back to him but I have bit my tongue.

    I know he had a rough start to the morning so he was in a bad mood already so do I

    1) just drop it and try to get home earlier rather than later

    Or

    2) try to apologize again as it wasn't intentional. My decision was based on the most recent facts that I had....

    Trying to understand in depth that "love is not irritable

    He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit, then he who captures a city-proverbs 16:32

  • Remember. BE STILL FOR I AM GOD.... Leave these little things to Christ. He will handle them.

    Much of what we get irritated over are things that Christ has comforted us from. Which means it is our selfishness that gets in the way.

  • Sean, I do not quite understand BE STILL FOR I AM GOD....I got a glimpse in JasonW's journal.....

    I know that the more I change and he sees the change the more my DH resents me....

    We have been together for almost 18 years and married almost 12.  We have 2 kids together  He is my best friend.  Currently he is not living at home but not yet started any paperwork...

  • It will get worse before it gets better. As Christ molds you in this journal, there is most certainly a few things that will happen. Your spouse will most certainly not like the changes because they will no longer be able to justify their actions. Then Christ will work in their lives if you just leave those things to Him. The conviction that comes with that are big.

  • I am ready for the challenge.  I know that I am definitely feeling different these days...Thanks so much for your inspiration....

  • When you get a chance. Read the appendix, especially the part on leading the heart.

  • Wow - I have come so far from this posting.    Amazing this journey...really amazing....

  • Yes, my dear, you sure have!  ;)  Your spirtual growth has been inspring as your passion to seek Christ and willingness to surrender to His will have become woven into your core of your identity.  You are beautiful!

  • Thanks Lisa.....it's nice to hear sometimes......I still feel lost somedays but when I wrote this I really had no clue as to which end was up....

  • Pretty wild when you go back and look at things. Makes you wonder how you ever were the person you were.
