Yep, I read it! It wasn't an easy read, and I need to read it again. It was very convicting. Seems that wives from every age go through the same things. The same misunderstandings and the same hurt feelings.
I sometimes wish that life were easier or that the Lord would just take us home. But of course, that wouldn't serve His purpose, which is to mold us and purge us of everything that is bad for us.
What I think we all have a hard time understanding is that God is purging us for our own good.
I once heard a friend preach a sermon about tithing, and he said " I tithe because its helps me!"
The inevitable trials and tribulations are for our own good. I know this theoretically, its the practice I'm having a hard time with.
