Intersecting Life and Faith

Delight or Drip?

I have delighted in my husband for over fifty years...
said a dear friend of mine over the weekend. There are times they act like newlyweds. I do know they've had their share of heartache and the journey they have taken in sickness and health, for richer or poorer has not always been easy. I love that word delight= a high degree of pleasure or enjoyment; to please highly (www.Dictionary.com) Do I delight in my husband, taking great pleasure in him or am I a drip, drip, drip? (Proverbs 27:15)
A nagging wife is like the drip, drip, drip of a leaky faucet. Proverbs 27:15 The Message
I was also excited to hear Pastor Rob give the definition of fit in Genesis 2:18 in his message on Sunday.
Then the Lord said, 'It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make a helper fit for him.' English Standard Version
The greek for fit is neged= in front of, a counterpart, compatible, someone to correspond to Adam. I'm the first one to say I'm guilty of being a drip some days, but I make it my goal to be a helper fit for my husband walking alongside him fulfilling the roles I believe God has called me to. In future posts I will be writing how I help and delight in my husband. I want to take joy and pleasure in the husband God has given me rather than waste my time being the drip he would rather not come home to. Delight or Drip?

  1. Wonderful thoughts! Yesterday the thought came to me that Dan and I often feel like newlyweds. Why? Well, when you are newlywed you are excited for all the years ahead. When you’ve been married 40 plus years, you treasure each moment knowing there aren’t that many more years ahead.

    I pray I delight in Dan all the days of my life. Thanks for the reminder.

    Prayer hugs,
