newroof“It is better to live on a corner of  the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.” Proverbs 21:9  I do not want my husband to be better off on the roof than in the house with me.   I can control my words.  I can keep from nagging and arguing.  There are so many times when I don’t know what to do.  I don’t know how to best raise my children or how to use my time or even what to have for dinner.  But I can keep from nagging.  I can keep from turning conversations into arguments.  It’s not easy, but it is entirely within my control.  “When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise.” Proverbs 10:10  

Dear Lord, Please bless us with wisdom.  Bless each of us with a spirit that is gentle and quiet.

Where is the better place for your husband…..a corner of your roof or inside your house?
