Found this today and had to share it…
A woman accompanied her husband to the doctor’s office for a check-up. Afterward, the physician needed to speak to the wife alone. He told her, “Your husband has a serious problem. Unless you do the following things for him, he will surely die.
First, you need to make sure he gets a good healthy breakfast every morning. Then have him come home for lunch every day and feed him a well-balanced meal. Make sure you feed him a good, hot, nutritious dinner every night.
Also, you must keep your house spotless and clean so he won’t be exposed to any unnecessary germs. And finally, don’t burden him with any household chores.”
As they settled into the car for the ride home, the husband asked his wife, “What did the doctor tell you about my condition?”
The wife replied, “He said you were going to die.”
As a wife who is not “domestically-bent”… I appreciated this cute story very much. Can I help it if my desire is to spend time in the Word rather than fix a gourmet meal? I do feed my family… very well, I might add. But it is not odd to come home to find the word “JOY” written in the dust on my coffee table.
I don’t want to be known as a good cook, a great house-keeper… a domestic goddess. I want to be remember as a woman who loved her God, her husband and her kids. Not perfectly, but honestly.
