31 Days to a Fruitful Marriage, Day Nine: When You Think You've Married the Wrong Person

 
I think this is probably the number one reason people get divorced - not because of money or infidelity, those are just by-products of the idea that a spouse feels like they married the wrong person. I can tell you now that asking God into your relationship before you get married and making sure the person you marry is who God wants for you is incredibly important, but once you are married, it's God intention that a marriage stay intact.
 
We all know as Christians God didn't intend for marriages to end in divorce. So, what happens when we start to get the feeling you are married to the wrong person?
 
When you marry someone, you spend the rest of your life with them. The rest of your life is a long, long time. I think it is normal to go through periods of time where you feel less close to your spouse, or your lives start to change and you feel like two different people than you were when you got married. The less time you spend together, due to work schedules or kids, usually adds to this feeling of separation. I think in marriage, there will be periods when it's important to get to know each other again. People change several times in their lives and as people in marriages change, it's important to communicate with your spouse about your feelings and opinions about things. This is all part of God's plan for your marriage - to know, love and respect your spouse. But it has to start with communication.
 
God wants your marriage to succeed!

It was a very good day.

I love it when God smiles upon us. I mean, He smiles upon us all the time. But sometimes, it's like sunshine, and Christmas morning, and rainbows, and babies, and awesomeness. On steroids. And I know that those times are not always permanent, so I learn to really wrap myself in His goodness, to take it all in, be happy, and just sit back and wait to see what He is going to do in my life.
We have been struggling so long. I knew it was only a matter of time before things would be OK again. Where we would feel a little stability. Where we would take all of the things we learned while struggling and apply then when times are good.
We have alot of great things going on in our lives right now. Some really great things. Some amazing, mindblowing, off the grid kind of great things. I wish I could share more, but for right now, let's just say that we are incredibly blessed with some great opportunities God is putting in our lives.
I leave you with a gorgeous picture of our biggest blessin…

What is Your Skin Care Regimen?

Since turning 34 this year, I've been really trying to make sure I am taking care of my skin. I have been using Cover Girl Liquid Powder for years, but it always seemed to break my neck out. And full disclosure, my face cleaning routine consisted of using Avery's baby wipes (which actually do remove eye makeup surprisingly well). So, needless to say, my skin didn't always look its best. So, I received some gift cards for my birthday and I decided to go ahead and spring for some better products. First thing I did was get something designed to clean my face. I ordered the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion System. This system came with the battery-operated scrubber with both a brush and foam pad, plus every day face wash and microdermabrasion wash to be used twice a week. I have really loved using this system. The beauty is that you can really use any face wash you'd like. I will probably buy a pore-reducing wash after the tube they sent me is empty. This system really exfolia…

My Trip To Rockport

My best friend moved to Rockport 3 years ago when her husband was offered the job as airport manager. His sisters, brother in law, nieces and nephews and mother all lived in that town, and two years ago, the construction on their newly built homes was completed. (his sister and brother in law, and my friend and husband built homes side by side)
A week ago Thursday, she called me and asked if she could bring her family up to DFW and would I be willing to have a few stay with us. She told me that there was a mandatory evacuation in Rockport, but they were thinking it would only be until Monday. Of course, I always love seeing her, so I was pretty excited for an excuse for them to come up and spend the weekend. As the day went by, they were predicting a more severe storm, and the family decided to get a hotel room in Waco, close to their son, who went to Baylor. They wanted to be closer to Rockport and brought animals on the trip, so thought a hotel would be the best option. My friend&#…
