Hey Ladies and
So amid all these preparations, I sensed the hubster was taking it a bit hard. Dont get me wrong, my baby daddy is ALL man but he also loves having his lovelies around him. Due to other exciting things going on, baby boy and I are taking this trip alone and I KNOW he was conflicted about it. He wanted us home this weekend… I wanted to be out this weekend but he wanted us in this weekend….whats a submissive godly wife to do???
Provs: 18 vs 21: Death and Life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it shall eat its fruits.
So what did I do? I went to the hubster and said “ I know you don’t want me to go, but I really want too. Please, If I am to go, I really need your blessings for this trip”. Why did I say this? because words are cheap! Not the way you are thinking though; let me explain. Most words don’t cost us a thing; we use a couple million everyday without even blinking. The same ease with which you can say G’morning, you can use to say “To hell with you”. With the same ease at which I asked the hubster for his blessings; basically putting the decision in his hands, I could have said “ Ol’ boy deal with it!!!" A few years back, that’s exactly what I would have told him; after all I was his wife not his daughter. The hubster ( the gentleman that he is) would have left me to my own plans, he wouldn’t be happy but he knew that when my mind's made up, its basically a wrap! He wouldn’t force his will on me, he just wasn’t that kind of man. Well, things have changed these past years and you all know my plans for this new year.

Lol…. I wish I could show you a picture of the hubster’s face when I said those words. Shock is an understatement. Here I was submissively putting my plans into his hands giving him the power to make it or break it. He said “ Inthe…wow! Thank you so much for asking my permission, you could have easily done as you please but thank you for considering me.” What did it cost me to say those words? A drop of humility! but what did they do for me? They brought me prestige, love from the hubster and they made him feel respected as a man and the leader of our home. It’s amazing how much benefit you can get from just following the word of God.
Lesson of the day? Words are cheap, don’t be afraid to spend them. Oh by the way, are you curious to know the hubster’s final decision about my trip? Scroll back up to the first paragraph, the answer is right there….*Grin*
