I'm really making an attempt to write on a regular basis here! Hey, an "a" for effort, right? Kids, work, and life seem to always get in the way of doing the things I like to do for fun. (Yes, knitting has been taking a backseat, too!)
So, I briefly mentioned the other day that Barb Wire Man and I will celebrate our 10 year anniversary in two years, and that we are planning a vow renewal ceremony to mark the occasion.
Recently, he and I have noticed that we absolutely must take time to focus on each other, and our marriage. Our marriage, like anyone else's, is not picture perfect. We have our ups and downs, just like anyone else, but recently, it seems like we have had more downs than ups.
Don't get me wrong...we love each other incredibly, and are truly the other's best friend. We love passionately, and we fight passionately. We live in a world that makes marriage hard. I think in some ways, it is harder to keep a marriage whole now than it ever has been...there are more outside attacks we have to shield our marriage from.
In the next few posts, I'm going to write a little about the things I think attack our marriages. I'm in no way a counselor, but, personal experience is something of which I have an abundance. God has really laid a few things on my heart lately, so I'm praying that in writing these coming posts, I will be able to help someone else who may be struggling with some of the same things I have. At the same time, I think it will help me sort through some of my own thoughts and feelings.
Be blessed today!
