So, I missed writing about last week’s challenge..Oops! My task was to prepare my husband’s favourite meals during the week. My husband’s faves tend to be fairly easy…spaghetti, or meals involving meat. 🙂
This weeks challenge was to discuss with my husband where he sees our family in 1, 5, and 10 years, then to share with you how I let him lead in our home.
Louis said that a lot of where he sees us in the future depends on how many children we have (since we have recently decided to leave that up to God completely.) His vision for our family’s future involves me homeschooling (which we’ve been planning on since we had our first son, assuming God allows this by giving Louis an income we can live on without my having to go back to work), Louis moving up at his work, and hopefully him being able to pursue further education in ministry of some sort.
Now, as to how I let him lead…I’ve never had a real problem with that. I trust him to make responsible decisions regarding finances. The first couple of years of our marriage, we were both unwise. I didn’t keep up with finances, and Louis had never really HAD to budget before so he tended to make a lot of impulse buys. Now, we’ve gotten better, though we can always improve in our spending habits.
I give Louis my input regarding choices, but leave it up to him as to what decision will be made in the end. I also know that unless he feels totally guided by God, that he won’t do something I don’t agree with.
We both know that for the roles God has given us to work, we have to respect each other, and make our choices with the other spouse in mind before ourselves.
