A wife's charge

1 Peter 3:1-2 (AMP)

In like manner, you married women, be submissive to your own husbands [subordinate yourselves as being secondary to and dependent on them, and adapt yourselves to them], so that even if any do not obey the Word [of God], they may be won over not by discussion but by the [godly] lives of their wives,
When they observe the pure and modest way in which you conduct yourselves, together with your reverence [for your husband; you are to feel for him all that reverence includes: to respect, defer to, revere him--to honor, esteem, appreciate, prize, and, in the human sense, to adore him, that is, to admire, praise, be devoted to, deeply love, and enjoy your husband].

This was my reading today, alot to cover.

Respect = regard, deference, expression of good-will, to honor or esteem, have relation to.

regard = to observe, heed, attention, respect, consideration.

deference = respect to another.

rever = to regard with respect and affection.

adore = to love intensely

admire = to regard approvingly.

praise = commendation, applause.

enjoy = take pleasure in.

What makes him feel respected? How do you communicate these things to him?
Find out, ask, investigate, make investments of time and energy.
All of this will pay big rewards.
It's summed up in vs. 9

"For know that to this you have been called, that you may yourselves inherit a blessing [from God--that you may obtain a blessing as heirs, bringing welfare and happiness and protection]." (AMP)

When we take care of the things God has called us to, He will make sure we are taken care of!

The money tree

Geoffrey and Steven helped out at a garage sale today.
Geoff spotted this "plant", and snapped it up.
We're going to get some fertilizer and get this one going!
By the way, he only paid $1.00 for it!
(It's made of 15 real one dollar bills)

Caching again

We (Dave and I) went caching last night about 10:30p. I just want to convey how wonderful it was. It had rained almost all day, and then stopped about 9p. So it was misty and the smell from all the blooming trees was intoxicating!

The first one we hit was a cache in a trendy area in the SW part of Mpls. I had walked by this one during the day, but there were so many people around I just couldn't find it without feeling weird. It was in a phone booth!? I didn't know there were any of these around anymore.

The second was in a park (as most are). Of course it was dark, so we brought flashlights. The clue was good, but the cache doesn't light up to say "here I am", you just have to keep searching until you find it. We had almost given up when Dave leaned on the log and magically (almost like in the movies) it rolled over. Turned out it was under what looked like a RR tie that was full of holes. Under, but in one of the holes. Cool!

The third was on a bridge! Bridge you say, how? Well It was a metal bridge and we knew from others hidden by this cacher that his signature hide is an Altoids tin with a magnet inside. So we had it narrowed down to a small area. Dave had climbed up on the railings to search the outside of the bridge, but I just kept thinking it must be lower. I was drawn to the lowest rail, I reached down and felt the outside of the rail, and there it was. These caches are small so there's not much inside except a log book, a pencil and maybe a small trinket. But it's so fun to finally find it. We stood on the bridge and gazed at the downtown skyline, reflected in the water, just beautiful. I said "This is living" This is a great hobby.

Angie, Kirk and Chance at the ball park.

A few pics from Alabama

I recently was able to spend a week with Angie and the boys. The boys are getting so big. Both Chance and Christian are in little league. I was able to see both of them play. I had a great time!
