The time … everybody loved my husband but me

Ellie the Crunch

So, husband is very well loved in our community. We recently moved here but he managed to make tons of friends and they all love him, wives included.

Once we were walking with the family on a Saturday afternoon and this guy on a bike stops next to us, after introducing himself he tells me:”your husband is a treasure”

I immediately mumbled “we should bury it then”

The guy heard me, didn’t comment and left.

Later that day he asked my husband if I was serious. My husband confirmed I was.

Another day I go to the grocery store and ask the guy for a specific fish my husband had asked the manager to keep on the side.

As soon as I told the man my husband name he said:”I know you don’t want to hear this but your husband is a gem” – I replied “questionable” and he laughed…

Listen to Jesus

Proverbs 8 New International Version

Photo by Luis Quintero on

32 “Now then, my children, listen to me;
    blessed are those who keep my ways.
33 Listen to my instruction and be wise;
    do not disregard it.

34 Blessed are those who listen to me,
    watching daily at my doors,
    waiting at my doorway.
35 For those who find me find life
    and receive favour from the Lord.
36 But those who fail to find me harm themselves;
    all who hate me love death.”

Although this passage of scripture indicates that Jesus is talking to children, the passage really refers to us all. We must keep listening because it is only by listening we become wise and are blessed


I heard a conversation a few days ago. One person felt the other had upset them and had held on
to this grudge for two weeks, before venting their anger. If they had just turned round and said
something at the time, the matter would have been settled. No, they had turned it over and over in
their mind for days. It’s so easy to feel slighted, simply by taking what someone has said, in all
innocence, the wrong way. The perceived hurt, anger and bitterness had festered inside, causing
pain and anger. My challenge for you today, is, if you feel someone has hurt you, done something
you do not agree with, said something that has caused you to take offence, then make today the
day you get in touch with them, talk to them. Explain how you feel, and stop that annoyance
causing you to feel stressed.

Leviticus 19:17-19
Don’t hold grudges. On the other hand, it’s wrong not to correct someone who needs correcting.
Stop being angry and don’t try to take revenge. I am the Lord, and I command you to love others
as much as you love yourself
