Thursday Thoughts v.1


I'm linking up with Sar from Life of Love today for Thursday Thoughts.
. . .
[1.] Submission. What?  While i was driving to work yesterday one of the local radio shows and they were having a discussion on submission. One of the ladies was talking about how she is a strong independent woman and how she doesn't believe in submitting within a relationship. I really wanted to call in, but the phone lines were busy. I think a lot of people place a horrible connotation on the word 'submission', but i've recently had an amazing woman give me some incredible advice.
She said something along the lines of...
Let's break down the word "Submission"...sub-mission Sub means "under" so put it together,
"under-the-same-mission".
WHAT?! How completely relationship and marriage altering is that?! You're under the same mission as your husband and wife, DUH. I believe that the Husband is the head of the household (Ephesians 5), and that ultimately the big decisions fall on him, but not without the consent from his wife.
Submission---under the same mission.
. . .
[2.] I'm SO ready to have my roof replaced. Every time it even threatens to rain i get nervous that rain is falling down the roof and puddling up on the ceiling and then leaking down the wall...it's terrifying. Hopefully my cousin and his co-worker will get started THIS weekend.
. . .
[3.] I LOVE POTSTICKERSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS...nomnomnomnomnomnomnom
. . .
[4.] I wish i had cable for the simple fact that i miss the new episodes of 30Rock, Drop Dead Diva, and The Vampire Diaries...etc. oooo and OF COURSE HGTV.
. . .
[5.] Anyone else ready for Friday? I'm so ready to just chill and do some house work; maybe i'll even paint some...hmmmm groovy.

I have been struggling with the idea of submission for some time. Getting ready for my wedding and all I could NOT come to terms with it! But after reading this, I am so much more comfortable with it! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for that! Definitely what I needed to hear today :)
Have a great day, girl!

I feel like the problem with "submission" is that now it's used as a term meaning to obey, or to accept with reluctance. A marriage should be a partnership, so both people should be willing to serve each other, not submit... but that's just my opinion!

30 Rock is on Hulu! Easy peasy.

Thanks for linking up!

And when you have a husband who is under the same mission as God it's not hard at all to be under the same mission as your husband.

Choose wisely all you single girls!!! :)

I just got my eyes opened. I'm looking at submission in relation to my marriage in a totally new way.

My husband and I watch all our shows online since we're abroad. We make sure to stream, not download to avoid getting sued. It's not always ideal, but it does the trick when we're missing our favorite shows.

LOVE that "under the same mission" definition!

Also, we watch 30 Rock on Hulu because we don't have cable either!

Submission = under the SAME mission = BRILLIANT!! Thank your for sharing this, girl!!!

Be Blessed <3

Love your definition of submission! That gives us something to look for too - a man WITH a mission.

As far as TV goes, I don't have it either. If I do watch it's probably HGTV or somethin similar. Or a gameshow!

Hope you enjoyed your Friday!
