The "Honey-Do" List...
We all have one. Well I know that I have one. Actually I have one for me, one for my kids and one for my husband. There are just some things that he does better or I just don't like to do so he does them. I believe this all goes back to being a "help mate" to each other. We each have strengths and weaknesses. It's great to have a husband that balances me out.
As we are talking about the "Honey-Do" list on the show this morning I said that I have my list all typed out and on a spread sheet. Bart asked, "Really?". I showed him and he began to laugh. Yes...that is one of the "conditions" of my OCD. I feel like I can breathe once I have a list and a plan of action. I don't think there is anything wrong with that.
It did however get me to thinking, what is it that my husband wants to get done? I have never asked him, I just made him a list. I believe I could be a better help mate to my husband if I were to ask him what he'd like to get done rather than me telling him what I want done. So here I am again, reminded that my way is not always (if ever) the best or right way.
My prayer is that I be a wife that honors my husband so that he will be honored. Proverbs 31:23, Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land. This is my prayer today.
~Peace & Blessings~
