Saturday and being ornery...

Is that a Southern term? The ditches at the new house needed mowing. And have needed mowing for over a month. Rather than drive my tractor over from the old house, I used the big one as DH was in Nacogdoches doing trash pickup with the bike team and I figured he wasn't going to use it.
So I was having a good time and even drove the tractor down to the gas station to fill up the tank. But DH got home while I was still brush-hogging and he was not happy. He said it was because I was driving under some dead trees without a hard hat but I think it was because I was driving his baby. Oh, I knew he wouldn't be happy, but he was not interested in mowing the ditches. And nagging is not an option for me because I do not nag. .
Finished the church bulletin, met with some young people at church to practice a special for Sunday and put an arrangement on the altar. I watered the beds at the old house, finished my laundry and mother's and made a mean cornbread to go with the last of the purple hulls we picked from the garden. Now I AM TIRED.
I found this prayer on a blog and it speaks volumes to me.
"Loving Lord! You know the path of agony I am undergoing because of disharmony in my married life. You, Yourself instituted marriage since You found that it is not good for man to be alone. I believe that You have given me this partner, Lord! The Scripture says that a threefold cord is not quickly broken. Come and be in our midst Lord for You alone can make two hearts understand each other. You are the Prince of peace and You are able to change any bitter situation in my life. Father! It is Your will that we should lead a happy and prosperous life. So hear my cry, O God. Fill both of us with more love and understanding for each other and bring unity and harmony between us. Forgive me for the hurts I carry against my spouse. Help me to be more understanding to my partner's needs and feelings. Grant me wisdom to deal with this situation so that I can build up my house for Your glory. Thank You for Your peace O Lord. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen."
Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?
God bless us with an agreeable walk.
