Quick Recap - I am on a 25 week journey to becoming a more respectful wife. I want to be the best wife my husband could ever ask for! I found my inspiration over at Loving Life at Home. Please feel free to join me on this journey...it might even change your marriage... ;) For ALL of the 'Respect Challenge' posts check out the tabs at the top of the page!

nerves...accept the things you can’t

Philippians 2:14 - Do all things without grumbling or disputing.
Would you like a little cheese with that wine? I've heard that about a million times in my life.
If you didn't notice, it took me 2 weeks to get through this one. I hate to admit it, but I whine and complain quite a bit. This challenge definitely made me more aware of it. If you aren't aware, we are going through quite a bit of change, plus vacation was coming up. I realized last Monday that I was non-stop complaining the whole first week. I was grumpy, miserable, and extremely stressed out. And I definitely let it show. I prayed this week that God would give me a couple of more seconds to think before I spewed out words without thinking. And He did that. I pray He continues to do so. I don't sound as miserable and ungrateful if I don't open my mouth without thinking. And my husband doesn't get so annoyed with me. It's definitely a win-win situation. I hope it doesn't take you all two weeks to overcome this challenge! Good luck!
