Marriage Monday Springtime Marriage

This Marriage Monday we are returning to Christine at Fruit In Season. Christine founded Marriage Monday years ago. I adore her and am thrilled she will be hosting for the next four months. Her topic, Seasons In Marriage, is wonderful. I often write about the season in which I find my marriage, but I feel the Lord calling me to write about springtime marriage. After all, its spring and many June weddings are around the corner. The Noticer and a really great question. I WON! Yes, I won a book, The Noticer, by Andy Andrews. It arrived in the mail Friday. (Thank you Ashlie of Mommycosm) I can’t put it down. Currently I am reading a chapter where the Noticer is speaking to high school age kids about why so many marriages end in divorce. I find the dialog and the principal truthful. The beginning of a marriage actually starts... Read more →

Hallmark Holiday

Tomorrow is such a strange day. Valentine’s Day! This day could make me one of the happiest women alive or shatter my life. In the early years of my marriage, I had expectations of surprise trips to some warm destination. I dreamed of three dozen roses arriving at the bank which would make all my coworkers green with envy. I wanted him to sweep me off my feet because after all I deserved it. I mean really….. After all, he was lucky enough to snag me. Ahem…. Don’t pretend you haven't had thoughts along these lines as a young bride. Perhaps you still might. Well, I am writing to you today for a couple of reasons. I wish when I was young and starry eyed about love, a wise woman would have come along side me to help me get a grip on reality. I may not be the wisest... Read more →

My Hubby My Hero

I think I fell in love with my husband all over again Monday evening. Our family is facing a crisis at the moment, which called us all to join together and participate in something he normally would refuse. My sweet guy not only came, but he didn't fuss, argue, or resist either. As I sat across the room from him, I fell in love with him in a whole new way. For the first time in twenty-one years, he was my hero. He came to the rescue of his family. At one point I looked at him and said, "I don't think I've ever loved you more than I do at this moment." He smiled. I love his smile. What a guy. I can only praise God for this amazing turn about. I could never have accomplished this. I prayed before hand, God worked it out. Awesome! So, I'm cherishing... Read more →

Think of me Monday

For many of us who have been married for more than a few years, we sometimes find our marriage falling into a rut. Our routines become habits. Habits are a good thing. However, in the world of romance, spontaneity gives spark to our our passion. I have heard from spouses who complain that their marriage relationship has settled into predictability. I hear from women who say, “He goes to work and forgets all about me.” I hear from men that are desperate for their wives to surprise them with a little flair. Spiritually Unequal Marriage is all about practical help and encouragement to thrive in marriage. So, today if you are tired of your husband leaving for work without a second thought of you the entire day, I have something for you. If you are a guy (and I know you are out there) and you want your wife to... Read more →
