Love & Marriage: Simple Rules for Wives
Illustration: Last Saturday we were wrapping up a busy day at the football fields.  Boy it was a long day.  A hot day.  I am a coach on both Jay and Jack’s team.  So, after both of them play their games, I am pretty tired.  Angela is exhausted too.  While I get to coach and watch the game, she is on Jett duty.  Nevertheless, we were both super tired after it was all done.  So, we pack everything up and I am carrying everything to her car.  We have tents, chairs, bags, food, drinks, and coolers.  Going to these games is a real ordeal but it is fun.  When I arrived to the car I started putting things into the trunk.  I suppose I was not paying much attention and as I was heaving stuff into the car, my ring finger on my left hand caught the end of a chair and it hyperextended my finger.

[5] "Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones, ''Behold, I will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life. [6] ''I will put sinews on you, make flesh grow back on you, cover you with skin and put breath in you that you may come alive; and you will know that I am the LORD.''" [7] So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prop…

Love & Marriage: Simple Rules For Husbands
Introduction: As I have said in many sermons, I love my wife.  I do.  I have also said that she loves me.  I really believe that.  We have a good marriage.  We have been together for over 21 years.  16 of those years I have spent married to her.  You would think that after all that time together I would know her better.  Don’t get me wrong, I know her but I have still not mastered the art of reading her mind.  
Angela will tell you that this is a huge frustration to her as she seems to be able to read my mind quite frequently.  
Gentlemen, that’s how it is isn’t it.  Most of us are pretty easy reads.  We don’t need much.  We need food.  Food is good.  We need clothing.  We need a chair.  Not just any chair.  We need our chair.  The chair that has the indention of our butt in it.  That chair belongs to us and no one else is allowed to sit in it.  Lastly, we want to watch sports in peace.  When watching sports, we don’t want to do anything …
