I read a book that said you should plan your day in advance making a list of all your tasks for the next day like cooking cleaning and so on and putting the most important as number 1 and so on. If you did not get to number 10 not to worry. Make sure you put out your meal plan the day before and put yourself on the list too. After you have cooked and cleaned, go rest, shower up, fix the hair and spray some perfume you lok just as good and smell just as sweet as the coworkers and persons meeting your husband on the street. Plan the day and it won't be so frustrating

Greetings all!

How do I give advise to a couple that is on the about to divorce. I know its not biblical to divorce and I do not want to be judgemental.  I have been praying for the couple and its really depressing to see young people go through this.

Allow For Her Mistakes

Being human, women make mistakes. They may be late, or fail to have dinner on time, or the food will not taste just right. Sometimes the house is not well kept, especially when there are children. Women may not handle children wisely or may spend money foolishly. They make stupid remarks. The usual male response is to be harsh or critical. She may have pleased her man in a hundred other ways, but let her make one mistake and he expresses harsh disapproval. We want an angel for a wife, but she will make mistakes. Do not give her reason to believe her greatest mistake was to marry you.

Your wife's mistake gives you an excellent opportunity to turn a lemon into lemonade. The husband who has patience to smile and withhold criticism, and especially to say something endearing, does something that is most unexpected. If you not only allow for a mistake, but are forgiving, understanding and sympathetic and even more - help her correct the consequence of her error, she will probably be brought to tears. She will realize her husband is a rare jewel. The following suggestions will help as you allow for her mistakes:

1. Develop Humility: A man who is humble is not quick to criticize the mistakes of others. He realizes he is imperfect and subject to error. His mistakes will not be the same as hers. A woman who is habitually late is exasperating to a man who is punctual. But she will have a compensating virtue he lacks, and it may well be a more important one. A critical person is vulnerable to embarrassment, for he is sure to be caught in the fault he criticizes others for.

2 Look to Her Better Side: Looking at the positive is good therapy. When the spotlight is not concentrated on the fault, it does not seem so important

When a woman continually makes mistakes which burden others, it becomes her husband's obligation to teach her, if he has the capacity to do it. If she is a poor housekeeper or poor cook, perhaps he can encourage her to get instruction. She needs to know how important it is to you to have a well-organized home and meals which are adequate and on time. She must know that a part of the success in her life is to become adept in these skills, and a serious responsibility attaches to it.
