It Tasted Like An Old Boot

This Sunday School's lesson was about unselfish love. If there were a word that means the opposite of love, it is selfishness. It is a trait we hate in other people but justify in ourselves.

Here is a thought that I learned (and I can't remember where I read this), if I were to complain that B is being selfish by spending time at the gym rather than helping me with the kids at home, I am being selfish for thinking that way. Does that make sense?

The assignment this week was to pick one way that you can demonstrate unselfish love to your spouse.

When I started thinking about what I could do for B a certain list popped into my mind.

This list came from FamilyLife.com (it's GOOD you should check it out) Simply Romantic Tips for Him/Her.

You know until I came across this list just a few months ago I don't think I ever understood what romance was. I now know that it's not a scene from a movie or a candle light bedroom. The best way to get this across is for me to just list some of things from this list. There are 87 of them so I'll just pick a few. But seriously check out FamilyLife.com.
  • Holding hands
  • Find a book that he/she is reading a leave a note in it every 20 pages or so
  • On those chilly mornings go out and warm up his/her car

After church we came home to eat lunch. I had put a roast in the crock pot at 8:00am for 4 hours with carrots and potatoes. When we came home and I started to cut the meat it wouldn't even cut it was sooo tough. The veggies didn't even taste cooked, I had no milk for the kraft mac and cheese and apparently you can't store buscuits in a ziplock bag. Maybe next week we'll just go out to eat!

Kasey, What happened to your Sunday lunch? Was the crock pot turned on HIGH? You can hardly trust anything these days to cook right for you-ha!
By the way, you are anything but selfish. You always give it your all to be the best wife and mother, which you are! Keep up the hard work, you will get your rewards!
Have a good week!
Love ya bunches!!!!
