How was your Sunday beautiful Mommas? My work shift is about to change and for the longest time I’ve been waiting for, I finally had the chance to enjoy my Sunday as my day off. (Happy Dance☺) Yey, no more rushing moments after my shift trying to catch the schedule for the next Holy Mass with my family. FREEDOM!
A Sunday can’t be complete for us without hearing the Eucharist. For married couples, I’m sure many of us were able to relate to the second reading for yesterday, Ephesians 5:21-32. It was beautifully written. Let me share you the first part of it which really caught my attention:
Wives should be subject to their husbands as to the Lord,since, as Christ is head of the Church and saves the whole body, so is a husband the head of his wife; and as the Church is subject to Christ, so should wives be to their husbands, in everything.
As the officiating priest was explaining it more deeper, it allowed me to reflect about what kind of wife am I to my husband. Whether I am abiding with what the bible says on how the wife should behave. To be honest, during the first few years of our marriage and even until now(sometimes☺), I am that kind of wife who will always insist on what I think is right merely based in my own judgement without considering his opinion AT ALL. Obedience is one of my weakness.
Just like for example, as simple as making choices in doing groceries, it’s always my list that shall be followed no ifs and buts recognized with my decision. Lucky for me, I have an understanding husband. If I happen to marry a guy with a different wavelength in compromising differences, I am not exactly sure what would my marriage be like. It’s going to be surely chaotic!
Recognizing our husband’s authority is not that easy. Sometimes, we, wives, may think it’s impractical to follow what they wanted if we already had created a mini plan at the back of our heads to do things, right? I’m always guilty of this too.
While listening to the priest, I caught myself dumbfounded with how I was presented with the message. Our main role as a wife is to support our husband’s method of deciding for what’s best for our family in line with God’s teachings and not to ignore their authority as the head. We are chosen to be their first confidante, not their number one fault finder. They may commit unwise judgement in dealing with family issues along the way but that doesn’t give us the privilege to point fingers in blaming them and eventually strips our husband for their authority. We can talk it out with them to have it fixed.
It’s good to be reminded once in a while on what’s ought to be the right thing to do so we can also evaluate ourselves if our attitudes are still coherent to HIS teachings. I sooo love Sunday! I’m learning a lot Mommas.
Aside from feeding my soul, I also need to feed my growling tummy yesterday. I haven’t eaten a decent lunch because our work pantry wasn’t available during Sundays. I was to LAZY to look for a nearby eating place too.☺ Bummer!
While roaming around SM, looking for a place to eat, I found Choobi Choobi Restaurant and gave it try. I like their restaurant’s name “CHOOBI CHOOBI” fits for a CHUBBY CHUBBY like me.☺ harhar.
Food served was great for a reasonable price. You can visit more of their menu here.
Here’s what we had.
Choobi House Blended Tea Pitcher P180.00 with my beautiful model.
Krispy Kalamari P185.00
Kare Kare for P275.00
☺☺☺I love their Kare Kare. You got to experience how delicious it is too . It even made me roll my eyes back and forth hahahaha (exag!)
Sizzling Boneless Bangus P195.00
By the way their Plain rice cost P45.00 and Garlic rice is for P40.00 for one serving. For less than 1k for three adults plus one toddler is already a cheap price perfect for family eat out experience.
Both my physical an spiritual hunger were all satisfied. Let me end this post with my well-thought realization:
Marriage is supposed to be a sanctified union of love of the husband and wife and not a competition to prove who’s the boss of the family. Obedience means respect and must be observed within the context of marriage.
