1. I was discouraged and told my husband that it did not really matter how much effort I put into regular routine tasks or other tasks such as home improvements or even hobbies. After all I am getting older and who will even care when I am gone. He reminded me that in Ecclesiastes 9:10 it says:
Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work,
nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
2. I was irritated with my husband for not straightening up after himself after I spend a lot of time "fixing" things to be just right. I thought he was being inconsiderate. The Lord reprimanded me and reminded me that I need to focus on myself and what changes I need to make. How many time have I irritated him in some way? What is it that I need to change in order to be a better wife, mother, grandmother? May my prayer be each day - Lord change me!
2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory
of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
