Today – June 23rd, 2018 – marks 6 years that Nate and I have had in wedded bliss!
Ok that might be a stretch. Anyone who is married can pretty much agree that marriage takes work, lots of work. Hard work.
But is all the hard work worth it?
Yes. Every. Single. Time.
We had a rocky first few years which were complicated by deployment, miscarriages, moving from North Carolina to California and just learning how to go from being two individuals to one married couple.
That last one is the kicker. Learning how to go from being two individuals to one married couple. That is what marriage is all about.
Putting your husband or wife first.
Apologizing even when the very words burn inside your mouth, but you know that it’s necessary to begin to heal.
Understanding that it’s not “permission” you need from them, it’s you needing to show respect and courtesy…and love.
Letting them know you appreciate them.
Trusting one another and remaining worthy of their trust.
Perhaps most importantly…
Understanding that you are on the same team and it is necessary to learn to lean on one another and Christ Jesus.
The saying is true… the family that prays together, stays together!
Happy 6 years to my dear husband! I can’t wait for our celebration in just a few weeks!
