Viva la difference!

Ron and I have been doing a bible study with some others (in our small group) on a book called "Walking together" by John and Cynthia Heald.
It's a study on marriage and as the name indicates, meant to help us "walk together".

Well, we have a had a rip roaring time, doing this with a few other couples. The questions "force" us to communicate about areas of our lives and relationship to each other that normally get passed over for one reason or another. You can imagine some of the stuff that comes out when one is forced to have some honest communication going on!

Anyway, a few weeks ago, the topic was on "Building each other" and one of those delving questions I had to ask Ron was "What is one thing you would like me to continue doing, or do differently, in relation to you or to our home?"

Those who know my dear husband, know what a kind and gentle man he is, so of course, he was so polite in his reply..oh well, nothing know what I mean:). But **I** know there IS one thing **I** need to work on and when it came time to share it in our small group, I told them MY answer in addition to his explained below:

This is a new seatbelt rule from RTA that will also to be implemented not only in ........ but across ALL states.

The Road & Traffic Authority has done extensive testing on a newly designed seat belt. Results show that accidents can be reduced by as much as 45% when the belt is properly installed. Correct installation is illustrated.

Please pass on to family and friends.

Now, I hope you laughed! But it's amazing how this is such a common issue among women!

Yep, I am working on it girls!

I was just so thankful that when I bring up HIS driving, he doesn't bring up this up coz he's a good man!

Lol!! This is so funny!! You are a good girl to explain your answer to the group - especially after Ron's gracious one!!

I'd love to do a marriage study with our small group. we're watching Fireproof on Wednesday with them - that should provoke an interesting discussion - I hope!!

Thanks Jeanne!
I'd highly recommend the above book.
We have had so much fun doing it but at the same time it really helps us delve and go deeper in our communication and consequently helping our relationships grow!
Have a great time with your small group!
