Fireproof

Yesterday at Daybreak we started a message series called Fireproof Your Marriage. It is based on the movie Fireproof which I'm guessing most people haven't even heard of, let alone seen.  If you are married or even thinking about getting married at any point in time, I would highly suggest that you watch this movie (awesome story).  You might even want to check out the podcast, too!

Anyway, one of the things that Pastor Dave (as opposed to when he is just "friend Dave," heh) said is that men want to feel respected at home.  Janet joked that she ought to unleash some grasshoppers in our house so that I can capture and remove them from the house.  By doing that, I will continually earn her respect.

Fast forward to Sunday evening when we were watching the Fireproof movie (borrowed from Dave).  We paused the movie to get into our pajamas and microwave leftover pizza from dinner.  We both went up to the bedroom and discovered either a very large bee or a hornet (not sure which) hanging around the inside of our window.  At that moment I outright stated my fear of such insects.  Janet got a cup from the bathroom and a piece of cardboard and shooed the thing into the cup.  She promptly, and bravely I must say, took it outside and let it escape.

Janet has earned my respect.  And I am not worthy of her's.  :-P
