I asked what she was working on at the moment.
“I’m working on my PHT right now,” she grinned.
I admitted I had no idea what she was talking about.
“Ha! I am Putting Hubby Through.” she smiled. “I have the job that pays the bills while he is getting his college degree.”
We both laughed at her little joke but I got to wondering how many of us are willing to take a back seat when others need help of one kind or another.
Even in this grief stage of my life, I’ve found a few who are less than supportive. They say things like, “I know how you feel. My dog died.” Or “Get over it for goodness sake. He had cancer. What did you expect?”
Maybe we expect too much. If we seek the degree, Putting Holiness Through, our every action and thought would be to be like Christ. We wouldn’t be thinking Please Hold Thought, Put Help There or whatever other PHT’s we come up with.
Prayer: Father God we need our PHT’s to be yours. Guide us through. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
