3 Ways You Should Be Caring For Your Spouse

loving couple

This is our church’s week for Vacation Bible School. Every year, each day of VBS, I greet the children and parents as they enter the building. This year’s theme has a secret spy agency. So one of the props the team created was a “metal detector” that is strips of gray plastic cloth that the kids have to walk through. As people arrive, I tell the children to pass through the “metal detector” before they can go into the agency.

On the first day a grandpa and grandma brought their two grandchildren to VBS. I said my regular spiel about walking through the “metal detector.” Suddenly, the grandma turns around, looks at her husband and says pretty strongly, “I don’t think you can come in.” Then she looks at me and explains, “He has a pace maker.”

They did say they learned a lot from trial and error. Obviously, the error wasn’t too tragic.

And then, I noticed the safety leash attached to their ankle and the rope.

I’m sitting here with a box of Kleenex on one side and a pile of wadded tissues on the other. (Yes, I will disinfect my keyboard when I’m through.) My dear, sweet, generous husband gave me his cold.

Lying here in the middle of the night, unable to breathe or sleep, I began wondering what kind of wife I am when I’m sick.

None of us like adversity – whether it is a cold, or something as simple as a broken electronic, or as devastating as a hurricane or cancer. We would just as soon take a pass on any troubles – small or large. But right now we live in a broken world, so troubles are a part of our daily lives.
