Still Workin' the Thing Out!
My man and I sometimes tease each other about our marriage...we jokingly say, "We've been married 26 years and it's been 12 of the happiest years of our lives!" After reading what Christine said about the comments she has received from women who are struggling with this challenge, I just wanted to say, I've struggled too. This challenge has made me realize how much I take my husband for granted. I've been surprised at how consciencously diligent I have had to to be at working on my goals instead of it just coming natural. From my previous post in this challenge, I would not want to give the idea that things have ALWAYS been good...far from it. Just because I'm married to a pastor doesn't change the fact that he is still a man...an ordinary man. I married that man, not his calling, and we have had and still have the same struggles as most of you. It's been hard...REAL hard....but God had captured both of hearts before we captured each others and HE is the reason we are where we are today...still together, still in love, and still working the thing out!
If you have not been to the Living Proof Blog and read Beth's comments on the survey she conducted with some "blog husbands" (June 30th post) you need to take a trip over there. It will be well worth your time. I think it is so appropriate for those of us who are involved in this challenge. It will give some helpful insights.
Hang in there girls! Your comments and ideas have been such a help and blessing to me!
