I read this today :
If you cover your sin, God will expose it. If you expose your sin, God will cover it. David exposed himself, he dealt with the consequences and then moved forward in God’s grace.
While my Tuesday confessions might not always involve some sin or deep spiritual insight, I believe in this quote whole heartedly. Its so good to let it out, ya know? Acting as if you’ve got it all together is just a farce. You don’t and we know it. I am leery of people who seem to have no flaws…or even worse, don’t admit them.
With that today I’m going to confess something. I’m not throwing my husband under the bus with this but, well, here goes. About 3 months ago, my husband and mother got my couch down to the basement, that is a long story so I’ll just get to the point, the walls needed some TLC after the event. He graciously spackeled and painted the walls. He cleaned out the paint brush in the kitchen sink and then left the paint brush to dry in the dish rack……………the paint brush is still there. 3. months. later.
Now my confession is, that a better woman than I, would put the brush back where it goes being thankful that her wonderful husband got the couch in the basement AND fixed the walls. But not me. I don’t want to put the paint brush back, I want him to. Why you ask? I don’t know, maybe its because I pick up and clean and take care of everything around here that I want him to just complete his own tasks, maybe its because I’m lazy, I honestly don’t know why I won’t just put it back myself. I haven’t said anything to him about it at all, I’m not bitter or angry about it. I just want to see how long that paint brush will stay in the sink. Silly? Yes. Fun? Yes. Makes me a little weird? Yep, but that is no secret! 🙂
So what would you do?
P.S. I can’t wait until he needs the brush again someday and asks “Hey, the paint brush isn’t with the paint supplies, do you know where it is?” I guarantee that day will come and I can’t wait.
