The Controlling Husband

Ya know on tv you hear women throw around the phrase, "Well my husband is controlling.." Well of course he is ..he is a man..Men love to tell the little woman what to do....

Ya know when we had troubles in our marriage ..my husband didnt even notice me hardly..He didnt even come home from work to boss me around..He lied to me and hurt me deep inside..He didnt care what i thot as long as i stayed out of his way...

But then one nite as he was doin time in prison, an angel appeared in his cell...It was in the 1970s..There were riots in the prison for a few months..Guards were held hostage..The prison was on the News every day..People were being killed ...it was terrible.But that is when Jim came to the Lord...

Other experiences led to his decision to give his life to the Lord..but this was one of them too....But when Jim had done his time he came home a new man..Praise God !!!...

As a new man in Christ he had an opinion..and he let me see his heart...i was so glad he became controlling..i wanted someone to care enuf for me to have an opinion..and to care about what i did..and what the children did.

Thank God for men who are controlling and can be strong enuf to make a decision..and take the leadership place in the home..love connie

I loved this and all of your letters. I have been reading them from start to finish for several weeks now. Just the encouragement I need. I have always wondered why I never felt I fit in with my other wife friends while we were raising our kids. Starting with Mrs. Whites blog and finding yours through her, I finally for the last several years have been feeling at home and at peace in my life. I finally admitted out loud a few weeks ago to a female acquaintance that my place is by my husbands side. Taking care of him. Taking care of the house and our home life. She was a bit shocked especially since our kids are grown and gone for 7 years now. For the first time ever, I was not embarrassed to say I do not work out side of the home. This is my life and I love it. When all other women are complaining about their jobs and bosses I am feeling completely fulfilled in mine =) I hope and pray that you are well. You are a blessing to so many people that you do not even know. Best Blessings, Lori
