You are so much more than a housekeeper…

 

Creating a happy marriage and home starts with the wife and mother. Because we are the ones who set the temper of the home! We are the keepers of the home in more than the mundane domestic dailies of life! I think a bad attitude like when our husbands are like grizzly bears is definitely contagious- it is a thing of spirit and spirit pervades. You know, the whole house can be full of tension and NOTHING has even been said- it's just there, like you can cut it with a knife! And soon after the children will begin to fight and shout and very soon tension is in the home.

 

This promotes sniping at each other and other peace destroying behaviours….Lack of reverence and respect for your husband can turn many a teddy bear into a grizzly bear. Maybe if life has become unbearable with your husband, you should do a quick check on these things and if lacking, and attend to them. That is where a personal quiet time, soaking in the Word and developing a quiet gentle spirit and gaining strength comes in. Girding our loins and strengthening ourselves in the Word can create such a sweetness and peace in us, that it overflows to our husbands and to our children. It fills the house with its sweet perfume and dissipates the tension. It starts with us doing the tending and setting the temper. The rewards of doing this will be worth any challenge or changing we must do. Apart from pleasing God,  it is better to hug a teddy bear anyday than wrestle with a grizzly bear.
