Way Back Wednesday – Leftovers Tonight?

(Originally posted September 14, 2014.)

Lately my husband has been obsessing about leftovers. OK, that’s probably an overstatement. Compared to me, he’s more concerned about using up the leftovers. Honestly, I have no idea why. We have plenty of food and we generally get through the leftovers.

Leftovers Tonight? - Be respectful of what concerns him.

That said, it’s something on his mind and it concerns him. As a respectful thing, I’m going to take this seriously and do what seems reasonable to help.

I figure if something bugged me, concerned me, or generally mattered to me, I’d want my husband to take me seriously. I’m just returning the favor.

What does your husband talk about? What are his concerns? Can you help (even if you think it’s a bit quirky)?

Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.  Romans 12:10  ESV


Prayer Prompt: Ask God to help you be aware of your husband’s concerns and treat them seriously and respectfully.

  1. Ha! We share this same dynamic! For me, it stems from wanting to be a wise steward of our finances and not wanting to waste what we spent our money on. My DW will almost always choose to make a fresh meal rather than eat leftovers. Typically, we work it out this way: I eat the leftovers for breakfast and lunch the following days (sometimes over a period of a few days if it was a large meal). I always choose to eat whatever is closest to going bad, even if I’d prefer the other. This system works out well for us.
