Meet Me at the Peach

Today’s post is the second in a six part WordWashedWife series on prayer.

We have all faced times when we doubted that God was listening.  If we are truthful, we can all say that we have had the feeling that sometimes our prayers just bounce off the ceiling.  Today’s post addresses how to live through the spiritual dry times in your life- meet me at the peach!

I Wish...

I have always said MOTHERHOOD is synonymous with guilt and self-loathing!  This must stop!  No more should we think, I wish I baked cookies every week like Sally does, or I wish I was volunteering at the school every day like Jennifer or got to stay home with my kids like Molly.  😊  This must end.

Communication is the Key!

I'm good at my job.  So by all accounts, I am a communication specialist.  So I'm sure it came as a big surprise to my sweet husband that when we first married, I was really bad at communicating with him.  Considering this early time in our marriage, you could compare Jody’s situation with someone who had just married a graduate from the Culinary Institute of America only to find out their new spouse couldn’t cook at home – their spouse could make delicious meals for strangers, but could hardly boil water in their own kitchen.  You would want your money back, right?!

Shark!

At that moment, the chicken side of me won, and I began to scream and splash about, and in general, pitch a panic!  Jody came up from snorkeling alarmed by my screaming and assumed the worse - SHARK!  He scrambled towards me.  I was attempting to get up the boat ladder, but my legs wouldn't make it happen.  I was paralyzed by fear!  The fish, combined with my own screaming, had convinced me I was soon to die!
