When you and your hubby have a different view of a situation, don’t think that you have to continue talking it out to come to a resolution at that moment. When I was younger that’s what I did, which does not work out so well.
It works out so much better to agree to table it and pray about it. And I have found that it is good to pray for God to lead you to the correct answer. What I usually pray is, “God change him where he is wrong and change me where I am wrong.” Honestly, I usually start strong on the changing him part and add the change me part as more of an afterthought, especially in the beginning. But this does help.
It doesn’t do to be hardheaded and stubborn and resistant to change either. It is so much better to acknowledge the other’s perspective and calmly share yours.
As the holidays approach, it is good to talk about them early to make them go as smoothly as possible. You want it to be an enjoyable time for all involved. And pray about it. It’s odd how something so simple is so easily overlooked.
Until next time, God bless,
