Yesterday was just one of them days here at the Stroupe house, I was behind with house work from the busy weekend, and being gone all day Tuesday, grocery shopping, and seeing the midwife, so therefore Wednesday just did not want cooperate with me. Trying to catch up on house work, busted watermelon in the middle of the floor, and hanging out 5 loads of laundry. Top it off, last night Gage had soccer practice that we had to be at by 6:00, and Andrew had a side job to tend to so he was not able to take him. Anyhow, I was running out of time, so I had to leave clothes out on the line. When we got back, Andrew was on his way home, he had not ate supper yet, (clothes still on the line ) I fix hubby's supper, and Gage and I go out to put the chickens up. ( It is now dark time ). We were missing one chicken, so I asked Gage to go in and get daddy to come out and see if he could find her. Before Andrew had gotten out there I had found her, Andrew puts her in the hen house and we walk together toward the house. Oh my, still hanging, are the clothes, sense before soccer practice grrrrr. Here I am thinking, YES, I have help. I start to take them down one by one, hubby continues to walk to the house. My thoughts * I can not believe he is not helping me, here I am outside, 2 loads to take down and he continues to walk in the house *. I walk into the house with an arm load, Andrew is in the bathroom washing his hands after handling the chickens. I go outside to get the rest. The thought was going through my mind, * how could I think that, he worked for 8 hrs, went to do a side job, got home late, and all he wants to do is relax. All I can think about is me, me, me, it is my fault that they are still out here, and that I am behind on my duties as a wife and mother.* So as this is going through my mind, guess who comes outside to help, yep the most wonderful, unselfish,loving husband in the world. I asked him to go back inside, that I am almost done, and to go in and relax. When I went into the house I was telling him everything, and he just GRINNED........ So this morning all of this is going through my mind, I sit down to my Bible, and guess what I read.. 2 Timothy ch 3 2 & 3 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemeres, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy 3: Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent fierce, despisers of those that are good. AMEN
