An excellent wife…(from the Construction Schools for Wives)

 An excellent wife is the crown of her husband, but she who brings shame is like rottenness in his bones.
Proverbs 12:4 (ESV)

Although these birds earn a bad rep for symbolizing death,
I really applaud their conviction in staying monogamous.
When a vulture is caught dallying with another bird, there will be hell
to pay! Not only will his partner harass him, but the whole
enclave will attack. Philandering is definitely frowned upon among vultures.

Today I’m guest posting at the Construction School for Wives for Melissa Aldrich. Melissa and I met as sister-dreamers on the God-Sized Dream Team Holley Gerth created. We though we knew what we were doing. We thought we knew what would happen. God knew better, because although the team's season has come and gone, we are family. I've got ALL my sisters with me. So, when Melissa needed a writer to pinch-hit in her Construction series, I was obedient to the call and said "yes."   Who knew I could offer encouraging and Godly advice on being married? Bless God, two decades have taught me some things I’m happy to share. The series is intended to encourage wives to confront head-on the challenges we face, and sometimes create in our marriages. Our hope in writing this series is that God will transform our marriages through our transparency into doors and windows into the Gospel. Every answer you've ever sought is in The Book. Let me tell you about my experience as An excellent wife…

We’ve been married 20 years.  He truly is the love of my life, and Lord, You know, I do everything I can to be a good and loving Christian wife, all Proverbs 31 and such.  Friends and family have often heard me say, “absolutely, I’m an obedient wife.particularly when it suits my purposes.”  On this particular day, obedience was easy. Join me at Melissa's blog for the rest of the story...
