Apparently after my husband came to bed last night, he asked me to read a certain passage of scripture and give my opinion on it today....I don't recall that conversation at all! Anyway, after he came home from work tonight, he mowed the lawn and we ate dinner. After dinner we were talking and the subject came up - to which I had no response because I had no idea I was supposed to:)
Glen had formed an opinion long ago regarding the idea this passage eluded to and I did too. I won't go into what he believes or what I believe because I don't want to stir up controversy - we'll save that for Sunday morning:) The interesting thing is that I didn't come to the same conclusion that he did this time. I'm not quick to say one way or the other, but leaning toward the other:) After almost seventeen years of marriage, we are disagreeing on a pretty big biblical concept. Nothing that has to do with salvation - that's clear. This is a gray area that really shouldn't even be argued over (not that we argued - it was just discussion I promise- the kind you can have in front of the kids).
After what seemed like FOREVER, we agreed to disagree. The crazy thing is, I'm now the source of his frustration! Am I not supposed to be his "helper"? It used to be unknown people or unimportant people that he could easily dismiss. Uh-oh....we may have to avoid this for awhile! Neither of us are avoiders so this may be tricky;-) Pray for him.....with a wife like me, he deals with more than you know:)
