of choosing my own adventure, I’m choosing my own marriage. I’m choosing how I react when I’m angry or annoyed. I’m choosing to be the wife I told my husband I would be. I am choosing to let my husband be the husband the he told me he’d be.
Have you ever tried to change what you desire, what you crave, what you think about day by day? Desiring marriage seemed well and good but it didn’t change how I actually felt when I was in a relationship with a man.
I confessed my fears and anxieties to the Lord and told Him how inadequate I felt. The answer that came was that He knew me and my circumstances better than I did. He let me know what He needed most from me was to be willing.
My husband and I recently returned from our first vacation, just the two of us, for FUN, since we became parents.
And something amazing happened.
We didn’t miss our kids.
Letting your significant other know that you are thinking of them instantly improves the feeling that the two of you are a team and are there to support each other. A love note is an important concrete reminder of what it means to be committed to each other.
Give 100% and expect 0%. Give without expecting anything in return. Because the leading cause of divorce? Unmet expectations.
