Okay, full disclosure, I've never actually seen any of the Real Housewives television shows that appear on the Bravo Network. I have, however, seen ads and comments enough to know a little about these ladies. One allegedly has money issues, has been evicted from her home and looted it in response. Another allegedly keeps company of a married man called "Big Poppa." On the season finale, one housewife cursed out another and flipped a table...with children in the room.
Well, the photo above is of the real housewives that I know. We are the real housewives of our community.
We too may have experienced money problems from our husband's lost jobs or pay cuts and a suffering economy. But we pray for one another, and believe that God will provide for our needs.
We may not have perfect marriages. But what we do have is a belief of a covenant between our self, our spouse and God. We strive to make our marriages work, even when times are tough.
Sometimes we even hurt one anothers feelings. We're may mis-speak or take things the wrong way and get our feelings hurt. But we work to resolve those issues amicably. We know we are forgiven, so we forgive...even when its hard.
We real housewives may not have a television show about our lives, but we have eternal life. We're not that different from the other "real housewives" in that we have issues in our life. But how we are different is that we have Jesus in our life. And that one difference makes a huge difference. We are the real housewives of our community. We serve a real God. Bravo!
