It’s so fun celebrating love and friendship!
But it can also be a really difficult day for people who:
are single for the first time in a long time
have always been single
are married and separated
are married or in a relationship but are feeling lonely
Those are a lot of different circumstances, but they all boil down to one thing: feeling alone.
after many many weeks (if not months) of acting like a total jerk to my husband (we have a crazy marriage story in case you’re wondering, but are still together and moving forward, PRAISE GOD!), I thought this might be a helpful challenge.
As much as I feel justified in pointing fingers towards my husband, or blaming him for the ways he may have hurt me, I KNOW I need to take responsibility for my own actions and attitude.
I hope you’ll consider joining me…
Yesterday I got an email from a lovely lady asking for an urgent local request for her brother’s wedding. The wedding will be next week, so it must get done as soon as possible.
I just wanted to share this, because it’s such a great story of God’s provision! I had some upcoming business expenses (literally in the next two weeks) that I wasn’t sure how my business was going to be able to afford.
I mentioned in one of my previous posts that I finally decided to do a yearly book challenge. Jami Balmet of Young Wife’s Guide was talking about how she read almost 100 books in 2018, and I was like…”whaaaat?!”
You see, I read almost non-stop as a kid. It definitely slowed down in middle and high school, although I’d still take the time to read a good story every so often(I think I read the first Twilight book in one day).
I kept telling myself that if I could’ve been more disciplined things would’ve been better. But then I felt so discouraged that all my attempts at doing so would be short lived, causing me to feel even more defeated. Despite all my failed attempts, I knew I needed to do something. I wanted my 2019 word to be discipline (even though I had never picked a word of the year before).
After such a rough year and feeling like we’re starting this year out lacking vision and motivation, I want to be intentional to stir up conversations with my hubby and just spend time dreaming together. And then I want to be able to support him in those dreams, and make his dreams mine.
