✈️A few weeks I was sitting at the airport waiting on the hubby’s flight to come in. Prior to leaving for his trip, he wanted to drive himself. I offered to drop him off and pick him up, however, he reluctantly took me up on my offer. He cited all the things I would have going on the day he returned and that he didn’t want to be one more thing on my list.
As I sat in the Kiss & Ride parking lot, I reflected on the last 17 years of marriage and what type of wife I had been. That conversation popped back in my head. What made my hubby say that to me? I sat there in my feelings for a while because he had spoken truth. I made serving him my last priority and most times didn’t follow through with my word because of tiredness or an overbooked schedule.
I know some sisters are thinking: “DID I READ THIS RIGHT? SERVE HIM? WHO ME?IS THIS CHICK SUGGESTING I SERVE A GROWN BEHIND MAN?” Yes, ma’am, I said, serve him. Dictionary.com defines serve as –
So sitting there in the parking lot I thought, “yeah, I could have been doing other things such as cooking, laundry, etc., but I wanted to now let him know how important he was to me.” When he got in the car, I apologized for making him last more often than I am comfortable to admit, but it’s the truth.
The beauty of this was that he immediately accepted my apology and we moved on. The Word says, “Give and it shall be given unto you” and boy, did that pay off that night. Since the Kiss & Ride come to Jesus moment, I have been serving him more and it truly has strengthened our relationship.
