1. Choose Joy
It’s true: A happy wife makes a happy life. Please don’t use moodiness as an attempt to manipulate your man, but in all things rejoice, because that’s the right thing to do. (1 Thessaonians 5:16; Philippians 4:4)

2. Honor His Wishes
Give weight to what your husband thinks is important. Make those things a priority that matter most to him, whether it’s having dinner ready when he gets home from work or keeping the house tidy or limiting computer time. Don’t make him ask twice. (Philippians 2:4)

3. Give Him Your Undivided Attention
Yes, I know that women are masters of multi-tasking, but when your husband is speaking to you, make a point to lay other tasks aside, look into his eyes, and listen to what he is saying with the goal of understanding and remembering his words.

4. Don’t Interrupt
Have you ever been around a person who won’t let you finish a sentence? That gets old fast. Even if you think you already know what your husband is going to say, allowing him to say it without cutting him off mid-sentence shows both respect and common courtesy.

5. Emphasize His Good Points
Sure, he has his faults (as do you), but dwelling on them will only make you (both) miserable. Choose instead to focus on those qualities in your husband that you most admire.

6. Pray for Him
Faithfully lift up your husband in prayer every day, and you will likely notice a transformation not only in him, but in yourself, as well.

7. Don’t Nag
Your husband is a grown man, so don’t treat him like a two-year-old.

8. Be Thankful
Cultivate an attitude of gratitude. Don’t take your husband for granted. Be appreciative for everything he does for you, whether big or small. Always say thank you.

9. Smile at Him
Smiles spread happiness. Smiles have even been shown to create happiness. Smiles are contagious. And a smile makes any woman more beautiful.

10. Respond Physically
Did you know that the way you respond (or don’t respond) to your husband’s romantic overtures has a profound effect on his self-confidence? Don’t slap him away when he tries to hug you or make excuses when he’s in the mood. Your enthusiastic cooperation and reciprocation will not only assure him of your love, but will make him feel well-respected, too.

11. Eyes Only for Him
Don’t compare your husband unfavorably to other men, real or imaginary. It is neither fair nor respectful and will only breed trouble and discontent. Avoid watching movies or reading books that might cause you to stumble in this area, as well.

12. Kiss Him Goodbye
Success and respect often go hand-in-hand, so be sure to send him off right, and don’t forget to greet him with a kiss when he returns home, for good measure.

13. Prepare His Favorite Foods
Although the rest of the family is not overly-fond of spaghetti, my husband loves it, so I try to make it at least two or three times a month as a way to honor him. Next time you’re planning meals, give special consideration to your husband’s preferences.

14. Cherish Togetherness
I love to sit near my husband, whether at home or away. Our church shares potluck dinners every Sunday afternoon, and although the men and women normally sit separately to visit, I like to position myself close enough to my husband that I can listen to the conversation, as I think everything he says is so interesting. At home, I’ll take my book or handwork to whatever room in the house he’s working in, just to be close to him, because I enjoy his company, even when neither of us is talking.

15. Don’t Complain
Nobody wants to be around a whiner or complainer. It is grating on the nerves.

16. Resist the Urge to Correct
I know one wife whose spouse can’t tell a story without her stopping him fifteen times to correct inconsequential details: “It wasn’t Monday evening, it was Monday afternoon…. It wasn’t blue, it was turquoise…. He didn’t ride the bus, he took a shuttle.” Please. Please. Please. Don’t ever do that to your husband — or to anyone else, for that matter!

17. Dress to Please Him
Take care of your appearance. Choose clothes your husband finds flattering, both in public and around the house.

18. Keep the House Tidy
To the best of your abilities, try to maintain a clean and orderly home. Seek to make it a haven of rest for your entire family.

19. Be Content
Do not pressure your husband to keep up with the Jonses. Take satisfaction in the lifestyle he is able to provide for you.

20. Take His Advice
Do not dismiss his opinions lightly, especially when you’ve asked for his counsel in the first place. Make every effort to follow your husband’s advice.

21. Admire Him
Voiced compliments and heartfelt praise are always welcome, but you should also make it your habit to just look at your husband in a respectful, appreciative way. Think kind thoughts toward him. He’ll be able to see the admiration in your eyes.

22. Protect His Name
Honor your husband in the way you speak of him to family and friends. Guard his reputation and do not let minor disagreements at home cause you to speak ill of him in public. Live in such a way that it will be obvious to others why your husband married you in the first place.

23. Forgive His Shortcomings
Please do not hold grudges against your husband. Do not allow a root of bitterness or resentment find a home in your heart. Forgive your husband.

24. Don’t Argue
You are not always right, and you do not always have to have the last word. Be the first to say, “I’m sorry.” Be willing to accept the blame. It takes two to argue.

25. Follow His Lead
If you want your husband to lead, you must be willing to follow. Neither a body nor a family can function well with two heads. Learn to defer to your husband’s wishes and let final decisions rest with him.

BON VOYAGE S2. EP3 HIGHLIGHTS:
  • BTS play table bowling for pocket money
  • Jungkook who is usually good at bowling is so terrible at “table” bowling, he got -25$. Jhope got 3$. Rapmon 23$. Suga 9$.Jin 7$. Jimin got 4$. V 17$. Rapmon so far is the luckiest in Hawaii but Jungkook the lucky guy seems to be cursed in that land lol.
  • Jungkook will challenge again, giving up his basic meal for tomorrow yet he ended up getting the same minus 25$ again. Then Jimin tries and wagers all his 4$, he will end up with 0 if he fails and gets 10$ if he succeeds then he proposes if he gets more than 10$ for them to provide JK with a basic meal (but JK will refuse) and then Jimin hits the highest score 30$. Jhope will put his 3$ on the line and end up with none. End of story “never gamble” as JK said, “You will end up like me”.
  • BTS went hiking, Namjin dances to Spine breaker,  they take a pic all together, Jikook takes a selfie together and they admire the waterfall.
  • Jin is still saying Aloha to every stranger on the way.
  • BTS get the mission to each order his own food: The word that saved them “To go” = takeout. Rapmon will have no problem, Suga is as cool as always, Jimin ever repeated the order numerous time before going in and being so cute even the waitresses will smile, he will ask for the most famous drink and the old lady will say “Pepsi” to which they will both laugh". 
  • Jhope said that when he orders room service in hotels when they are touring, he can’t communicate so he just says “ok, ok” and eats whatever they get him. It’s a hit or miss. 
  • After ordering BTS get to have lunch: Everyone is using forks, but Jin is using the chopsticks he carries around everywhere. Jimin gets to have a bite of JK’s burger. They all share their food and have small-talk as they eat. 
  • BTS get to use their pocket money in a supermarket, JK and JH are left in the car. Jimin will get to buy instant noodles for the broke members and V will get them and apple and an orange each. 
  • BTS head to Maune Kea to see the stars of the big island: Jin even got to speak to a family (he totally forgot he came with BTS for a second). They really love the scenery so they take loads of photos of each other. They jokingly decide to come back there when they turn 50, but more importantly they each set group as staying healthy and making it to the top 100. Jhope wants to release his mixtape, Jungkook to master English (It’s his lifetime goal), Suga didn’t get to participate in the last album because of his mixtape so this year he is more determined. Jimin wants to sing well (even if Jungkook told him"you sing pretty well" and Jin added “his singing is perfect” then all the members approved, they all encourage him to make songs and covers too). Suga still wants to form a unit with Jimin. Jin promised to make an acoustic version of awake. They keep talking while appreciating the sunset. 
  • It’s night, BTS appreciate the stars, hold hands and make wishes: “please let us make it a big hit” “ARMY please always be happy” “I want to be a genius” (JK please). We also discover that Rapmon’s child dream was to be an astronomer like Galileo Galilei (for a year). At the end, BTS will get together and eat their dinner.
  • Arriving at the hotel, Jungkook gets to sleep on the couch (he is really unlucky in Hawaii), Jimin and Yoongi get to share the same bed and so did Rapmon and V, as for the rest they got to sleep on individual beds.

i've enjoyed your prompt fills so much, thank you for sharing them!! if you feel like it: chef!andrew trying (and failing) to woo picky eater neil with fancy food? :)

The thing about growing up on the run is that you never really develop a palate.

You eat what’s there to be eaten, whatever you manage to stuff in your pockets while your mother distracts the cashier trying to haggle for cigarettes, as if it’s anywhere near possible to haggle in a 7/11.

You eat school lunches, bland chicken nuggets and congealed mac and cheese and unseasoned carrots with those little close to expired fruit cups with the peaches and cherries and simple syrup.

You drink gas station coffee—maybe it stunts your growth, but you drink it anyway—and fill old plastic water bottles from drinking fountains or public restroom sinks.

At least, that’s what Neil tries to explain to Matt one day, when Matt invites Neil to his favorite restaurant in his hometown. It just so happens that Matt’s hometown is New York City, and the chef at this place has a Michelin star, but Neil isn’t on the run anymore and his paycheck is hefty enough that he can afford it.

Want to cut in line? You're going to have a crappy day.

This happened a while back, one day after getting off work in the afternoon i decided to stop and get a bite to eat on the way home.  There is a gas station that has a drive thru where you pull around back and order on a touch screen.  Normally the drive thru is very busy but luckily no one is there so I ordered my meal and went to pull around.

No sooner had I started a busted up Buick cut in front of me and pulled up to the window.  I honk my horn which he responds by flipping me off and I listen as he acts like a complete jackass.  From what I understood he wanted to get a pack of Marlboro’s and didn’t want to wait in the line inside so he just decided to use the drive thru.

Problem is you can’t get things like cigarettes and liquor through it and even if you could he just decided to cut in front of people but seeing how he’s driving a Buick with primer for a color and sporting a rat tail he’d be the type not to care.  He goes off on the employee getting the manager involved but she didn’t want to cause an issue so she decided to help the guy.

She gets his Marlboro’s which he proceeds to pay in a handful of change and she asks him next time to get them inside and not to cut in front of the drive thru.  He replies, “I don’t give a shit!” and takes off, I pull up and the manager profusely apologized and offered to give me my meal for free for waiting patiently.  I went ahead and paid for it anyway because I know how stressful it can be dealing with idiots.

I go to leave and pull out and notice behind me is the busted up Buick turning in the same direction I was.  Don’t know what he had been doing that whole time because I thought by now he’d been miles down the road but when I noticed he was going to be behind me I couldn’t help but smile.  There is a stretch of rural road with no passing because of how busy it is and speed limit is 40, well I wanted to get safely home so I decided to go 30.

For the first few miles the guy is going crazy, every time I look in the rear view the guy is screaming and all I could do is laugh and just make me more cautious.  Stopping to let people out, slowing down when I see people walking in their yards, basically just using any excuse to go slower.  Oh look a school bus coming out, sure pull out and your going to drop off kids?  Even better.

During the first drop off I look back and the guy is hitting his dashboard and all I could do is laugh manically.  Apparently it got to the guy when on the third stop after the bus retracted their sign I hear an engine roar and Rat Tail peels out behind me and on the other side and passed me and the bus and just narrowly avoided hitting a car head on.  Horns were blaring and before I could react I hear Woop Woop.  My eyes widen and I turn to a side road to see a Sheriff’s Deputy pull out.

Needless to say I laughed like a hyena and while this was going on I had a call on my phone.  I pulled over into a parking lot and talked to a friend of mine for about 30 minutes.  About 20 minutes into our conversation I noticed a tow truck going down the road but didn’t think anything about it, after my phone call I continue my way home.  A few miles down the road I noticed the traffic slowing and saw lights flashing.

I get closer and notice the Buick being pulled up on the back of the wrecker and when traffic stops for a moment I look over into the cruiser and see Rat Tail, in the back in handcuffs.  I couldn’t help but smile and as he turned to see me smiling I waved bye to him and continued my way home.

TL:DR  Don’t act like an inconsiderate prick or your day is going to end badly.

PSA for Requesters

I take pride in my work. I love making my art and I love making that art for other people.

But there have been some people who have just REALLY ticked me off.

I will not call anyone out on this, but if you think this post is about you, it probably is.

1. Reblog the art you request. Likes are just the *seen* notification. It’s depressing.

2. DON’T BEFRIEND SOMEONE SO THEY CAN GIVE YOU ART

3. Giving away other people’s art as gifts, even if the piece was made for you specifically, is stealing and it’s wrong.

4. Some artists are stuck in an awkward phase where the only people who are giving them the attention they need for their work are the slave drivers like the ones mentioned above and they can’t say “no” to them because without their requests, they may never get noticed in the art world as a professional artist who gets an income of some sort.

I know I’ll be stepping on some toes with this post, but I have had enough. This is MY ART and what you are asking of me is UNFAIR. If you don’t like it just remember that I am not an art producing machine in your computer. I am a human being who has a life and would like to pay the bills.
