You know the saying, “It’s easier to ask forgiveness than to ask permission”? Well, that is not the way you should handle things in your marriage. Yeah, I’m telling you from experience here. Oh, I wish it were an experience that I am pulling up from my distant past but unfortunately this one just happened this past week.
At least I learned a very valuable lesson: it is disrespectful to not ask his permission, especially if it is something that will affect him in any way.
I had to do some fancy apologizing for my overstepping. Even a day later, I was still dealing with the aftermath of my decision. We now have a clean slate and are moving forward. What I should have done was to sit down and talk to him about what I wanted to do and why, and then pray God deal with his heart.
So let that be one of those hard knocks you don’t have to get on your own. Learn from my mistake and be blessed.
Until next time, God bless,
