“I said, “I will watch my ways
and keep my tongue from sin;
I will put a muzzle on my mouth
while in the presence of the wicked.”
So I remained utterly silent,
not even saying anything good.
But my anguish increased;
my heart grew hot within me.
While I meditated, the fire burned;
then I spoke with my tongue:
“Show me, Lord, my life’s end
and the number of my days;
let me know how fleeting my life is.
You have made my days a mere handbreadth;
the span of my years is as nothing before you.
Everyone is but a breath,
even those who seem secure.” Psalm 39:1-5

It is hard for me to write the condition I’m in. My husband doesn’t help me around the house. He doesn’t care about the kids. I do everything by myself. Continue reading Meaning of “Tough Love”
It is natural for us to want to be “perfect” in everything.
I am not talking about “perfectionism” here but just a natural bent to desire to be found doing and saying the right thing all the time.
As a Christian, this desire gets intensified because we have that One that we want to please, other than ourselves. We want Jesus Christ to be proud of us, don’t we? Continue reading Very Embarrassing!
I agree that some people don’t like the word “submission,” especially when it is combined with, “to her husband.” Continue reading Wife’s submission to her husband
Let us not hold back a simple gesture of love from those who live with us closely, such as our spouse and kids. Most of us are good at surprising others with a simple or spontaneous gesture of love but we find it hard to do it to the very people who matter the most in our lives.
The simple gesture can be as simple as saying; “I prayed for you this morning so God’s favor will rest on you,” or as big as saying, “I will be your servant today for the whole day. Just let me know what you want me to do for you.” Continue reading First in Our Home
