Day by day

1.24.2010

Marriage isn't something that is learned in a month, a year, or 10 years. It is something that you have to learn over and over again, day after day. It's never the same tomorrow as it was yesterday. Marriage is two individuals coming together and cleaving to one another. It has tough moments, days and sometimes weeks. The only reason that we can love the way that we should love is because God first loved us. And each and everyday, God is working on is separately and we have to rely on Him completely to give us the strength and the ability to love our spouse as He wants us to.  Andrew and I are will be married for two years this June, and I feel at times that there is no way that's possible. There are still so many things that we both need to work on and grow up in. And at times that is frustrating and tiresome, but praise God that we don't have to do it on our own. Love is patient and it doesn't fail. Marriage is hard work, but so unbelievably worth it. Andrew and I are extremely non confrontational which can sometimes be a very bad thing when it comes to expressing how we're feeling. But last night, we had (I believe) a great and productive conversation letting each other know things have to change and be worked on. We had gotten mad/frustrated with one another and that caused to HAVE to sit down and talk about it all. I hate that it had to happen that way, but in the end, it paid off. I have an amazing husband who loves me, prays for me and wants to be a better man for me. I don't believe that I deserve him, but I don't deserve forgiveness and grace, and God gives that to me anyway. Andrew is truly a blessing from God and I thank Him daily that He gave him to me. Take time today, tomorrow and everyday from this day forward to tell your spouse how much you love them and how thankful you are for them.
