Dripping Faucets and all.... Okay, this is really stepping out on a limb for me but I feel compelled to share this. I'm doing this because I'm trying to become more transparent with my life and with my Faith. I know this is my business blog but as a photographer, I come in contact daily with clients that just may need to read this. I work with many younger couples especially those with small children and maybe what I have to say may help them. So here goes. Last night as I was typing on my blog, I felt a call from God to get in His word. So when I finished, I took a hot bath and settled into bed. When I get this feeling, I typically just open His word to the first chapter the the Bible opens up to. Last night it was Proverbs 19. I LOVE Proverbs and was so excited when I was drawn to this book. As I began reading, I was confused. It starts off a little deep, deeper than my mind wanted to go at 10:00 but I persevered. In the first reading the verses 13-14 stood out but still didn't grab me. Proverbs 19:13-14 New International Version (NIV) 13 A foolish child is a father’s ruin, and a quarrelsome wife is like the constant dripping of a leaky roof. 14 Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the Lord. So, I got out my iPad and studied further. And MAGIC! I knew what God wanted me to hear and it was amazing. See, earlier in the night when my husband came home I suggested that we walk all around the house from room to room and outside and make a punchlist of all the things that need to be done and I was frustrated at him because we never got to it. He got home and washed his car, we ate dinner and I cleaned up, got the girls bathed and in bed and finished editing a session from last weekend. When the subject came up at 9:00, I mouthed off some response because I was frustrated that we hadn't done what I wanted. As I was thinking earlier what needed to be done.....the first thing that I thought that needed to go on my list was the DRIPPING FAUCETS in the kitchen and in the bathroom. They drive me CRAZY! I adjust the levers several times a day to make the stop dripping and the constant drip-drip-drip is nervewracking. Well, I confess that is me! A quarrelsome wife is like the constant dripping of a leaky roof! OUCH! The commentary says, "The contentions of a wife are a continual dropping - The man who has got such a wife is like a tenant who has got a cottage with a bad roof through every part of which the rain either drops or pours. He can neither sit, stand work, nor sleep, without being exposed to these droppings. God...
