A Wife’s Secret to Happiness” By Jen Weaver 

Book Review | Giveaway

Reading this book, I felt Jen easing me gently into ‘submission’ in the first chapter as she was obviously preparing me for the real discussion to come of the ‘S’ word in the following chapters. Being a strong, independent woman and activist for equality, I cannot lie, I struggled personally through each chapter. Like a toddler, kicking and screaming while she is being dragged by the arm to a scary place she did not want to go. Yet, I persisted, and I continued reading and kept an open mind. After a while, I realized it was not so scary after all. Many times it is the unknown or relinquishing control over our lives to another that causes this fear to be born within us.

 

The author explains how submitting to your husband to lead is trusting and living in your faith in God as He called you into “marital submission.”

By accepting her role as an equal yet submissive partner, she no longer vies for his position—a decision that makes room for her husband to learn to lead and love her as Christ designed. As a wife learns to recognize and align with leadership in her marriage, the fruit of her spousal partnership blesses many other areas of her life—including her career and ministry—increasing her authority.

Life is hard, marriage is hard, as are all types of relationships we enter into. Every marriage is different and has their own issues. I thoughtfully reflected on the purpose, challenges, and blessings in the author’s secrets to a healthy and happy marriage. I quickly realized this is a wifestyle for your lifestyle that when applied can change your direction when you feel lost and guide you on a smoother journey full of blessings.

Please God, Just One More Day

  My dear sweet Heavenly Father I come to you today

With faith and hope I ask

Please God…Don’t take my Mom away

One day with her is all I ask, just one more day together

If I could have one more day with her I would make it last forever

I know her time is near and soon you’ll take her home

Where she will be so perfect and a beautiful Angel she’ll roam

Heaven with more colors than we even know

Where even the rarest of flowers sing in the loveliest picture show

Her sparkle lights up the darkness like the brightest star of night

Rising in our hearts her brightest loving light

Life will never be the same since she was called away

Her light shone bright in the darkest hours of each and every day

I believe that she is with me when the sorrow is too much

I believe that she reaches out to me

I know that I feel her touch

When tomorrow starts without her don’t think we’re far apart

For every time I think of her she’s right here in my heart

Every day I miss the smile that no one can replace

Yet still it brings me comfort in the sadness that I face

Until we meet again I’ll find the strength to live through each new day

Grateful for the happy years before she went away

My Dear sweet Heavenly Father with hope and faith I pray

Please take us all to Heaven’s final resting place, at last, we all can stay

Please God, Just One More Day.

I Love You Mom…With all of My Heart,

Your Daughter,

Shirley

In Loving Memory of my beautiful Mom
