~ My Husband Rocks! ~ teammates!

Click here to read about why I started MHR Fridays!


This week, we have the awesome challenge from Mike over at OPEN Mike in his post Tour de Vie to

If you had to name your Team, the one group with which you most identify, would it be family, friends, schoolmates, work associates, church members, ministry partners? When was the last time you served them as a domestique?

If you can’t recall, do something tactical and supporting for a teammate by the time the Tour de France concludes on Sunday.

First off, let's get some definitions:

1. of or pertaining to tactics, esp. military or naval tactics.
2. characterized by skillful tactics or adroit maneuvering or procedure: tactical movements.
3. of or pertaining to a maneuver or plan of action designed as an expedient toward gaining a desired end or temporary advantage.
4. expedient; calculated.
5. prudent; politic.

1. to bear or hold up (a load, mass, structure, part, etc.); serve as a foundation for.
2. to sustain or withstand (weight, pressure, strain, etc.) without giving way; serve as a prop for.
3. to undergo or endure, esp. with patience or submission; tolerate.
4. to sustain (a person, the mind, spirits, courage, etc.) under trial or affliction
5. to maintain (a person, family, establishment, institution, etc.) by supplying with things necessary to existence; provide for.
6. to uphold (a person, cause, policy, etc.) by aid, countenance, one's vote, etc.; back; second.
7. to maintain or advocate (a theory, principle, etc.)
8. to corroborate (a statement, opinion, etc)
9. to act with or second (a lead performer); assist in performance.

I think it is so vital to remember, but so very easy to forget, that our husbands are our closest and most important teammates! I have often noticed in many relationships, but most vividly in my own marriage, how easy it is to take their partnership for granted - and to treat them far worse than we would ever dream of treating even complete strangers! I don't know if it is because we are so comfortable with them - as well we should be, but we should never allow that sense of comfort to morph into disregard and disrespect.

This is something that both Austin and I are trying to be far more aware of in ourselves and guard ourselves against. (Admittedly, he does a far better job of keeping himself in check than I do) It is so very easy to fall into this pattern of behavior, but it is also soooooooo worth it to avoid it!!! :)


Father, please help us to support the mates that you have given to us and to treasure and value them to such a great extent that to treat them with disrespect, unkindness, or contempt would be inconceivable! Thank you so much for the wonderful men that you have provided for our journeys! :)
