"Wives, submit...

to your own husbands, as to the Lord." Ephesians 5:22

I'm not sure how well the next story relates to submission, but it's a good story and shows the growth I've experienced in just 11 days of this challenge.

We made a road trip to Las Vegas today. It was a l.o.n.g. drive. Both Surferman and I have "Directional Deficiency" You won't find it in the DSM, but it should be.

Here are the symptoms to look for...
  • inability to differentiate between left and right
  • difficulty knowing right hand from left hand (unless you look at your hands and see which one makes an "L" or pretend to hold a pencil)
  • you routinely say right when you mean left and vice versa
Unfortunately there seems to be no cure and the only treatment involves GPS.

Back to the story...
A couple of weeks ago (pre-challenge), we took a road trip. Even with a GPS, we got lost multiple times and argued our way to our destination. It was pretty miserable.

Today though, we got turned around a couple of times yet we arrived at our destination without stress, without tears. It was great. It was proof the Lord has changed me.

Just two rules:
You can't say anything negative about your husband . . . to your husband . . . or to anyone else, about your husband.
Say something that you admire or appreciate about your husband. . . to your husband . . . and to someone else, about your husband!
