A great reminder for your week! Pride goeth before a fall…
Do you ever have this feeling that you are better than your husband? Do you find you look down on him because he doesn’t quite measure up to your expectations of whatever……orderliness, manners, managing finances, education, etc. It’s easy to fall into this trap and to replay it over and over again in our minds.
If you are thinking this way, I want you to remember that he has qualities that you are lacking. Would you like it if he looked down on you for not measuring up to the qualities he holds so dear?
from Fascinating Womanhood:
Similar to self-righteousness is a feeling of superiority. You may consider yourself more intelligent, better educated, more skilled, alert, careful, clever, or successful than he. You may come from a better family background, one with more money and status.
With this view of yourself, you may take the initiative to shape him up to your standards. If you want a good marriage, don’t count the worth of these things in your favor, or flaunt them before him, making him feel inferior.
Instead, learn to appreciate the things which really count.
One thing that makes it difficult to overlook a fault in a man is that his faults are different from yours.
He may be disorganized and messy, whereas you may be neat and orderly. He may be forgetful and you may be alert.
On the other hand, you may be critical whereas he is inclined to be forgiving. You may be tardy and he may be prompt.
Because your faults are different, you may focus on his and overlook your own. The next time you are troubled about your husband’s faults, say to yourself, “He has this fault but he is better than me in other ways.”
Awesome prayer! ❤️ I say this daily.
Oh St. Joseph whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the Throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.
Oh St. Joseph do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that having engaged here below your Heavenly power I may offer my Thanksgiving and Homage to the most Loving of Fathers.
Oh St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart.
Press Him in my name and kiss His fine Head for me, and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath.
St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for us. Amen.
