How well do you know your husband, wife, or significant other ? Even the closest of couples may keep some secrets from each other.
When we got married, my husband announced that he did not like going to barbershops, and he asked me if I would become his hairstylist. I agreed , since it was a chance to pamper my husband, and save money !
Thus for 44 years , I have kept my husband looking handsome and well-groomed.
I was surprised the other day , when I was trimming his hair, and he was watching for whales. He thanked me for having been his hairstylist , and told me he avoided barbershops because he was afraid of mirrors ! I had never known this ! Fear, or phobia of mirrors is called Catoptrophobia. The reasons for this fear are not well understood.
We all have areas of fear and anxiety that we don’t want others to know about. However, Jesus desires to heal us of these areas of discomfort. We are assured that He desires to keep us in perfect peace, as we trust Him and stay focused on Him.
I checked with my husband before posting this, since I wanted to make sure that I didn’t embarrass him by revealing his fear. He said ‘ At my age, nothing embarrasses me ! ‘
