We strive for this
and pray that we can be this woman and man
We try to remember this
But we're a work in progress.
You know, our marriage is not perfect. We speak different love languages. At times we disagree about money. I am 100 times more emotional than my husband. I prefer organization and de-cluttering over nitty gritty cleanliness, Jon prefers the latter. Sometimes I treat people un-Christ like and Jon will let me know. And sometimes Jon asks too many questions (he has an engineers mind!).
But guess what?
We love our marriage.
With Thanksgiving fast approaching we've been talking about what we are thankful for and we feel like we can't thank the Lord enough for bringing us together. For laughing and being silly, for loving each other unconditionally. For building our relationship on the Holy Bible. For bringing Ernie into our family to show us how quickly we can fall in love with a little being. Thankful that my family has become Jon's family. I love that Jon made me homemade chicken soup this weekend (even though I threw it up). I love making up songs about mesothelioma and having to re use catheters with Jon (if you haven't seen those commercials, you are living under a rock). And when we argue, I love making up.
We made a promise on for better or worse and thus far our marriage has been far better than worse.
What do you love about your marriage or relationship? I'd love to know!
