31 Days to a Fruitful Marriage, Day Six: Men, What is Your Role?

Technical difficulties with my computer have let me get a little behind!!!
 
 
As we've mentioned before, the man is the spiritual leader of the household.
 
"But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ. " 1 Corinthians 11:3
 
It is the expectation of the Christian husband to be the spiritual and physical leader of the family. Husbands are to strive to be complete in their walk with Christ, thereby being able to lead their family in matters of Christianity. This includes teaching and leading their family in quiet times, spiritual direction of the family, prayer, serving, and all other Biblical matters.
 
"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, " Ephesians 5:25
 
"Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them." Colossians 3:19
 
It is also the expectation that the Christian husband will love his wife, as Christ loves the church. This is very important, as a loving husband is part of the connection of respect to the husband from the loved wife.
 
No husband will be perfect in his role. This is very difficult for some wives to understand, that we expect perfection or ultimate wisdom from our husbands to do the right and "Christian" thing at all times. Sometimes, a husband will be less strong in his walk than others, while some periods of the marriage will be better than others. It is all a part of our journey as Christians.

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…

Dancing With Dad

I have been working on a project these last couple of weeks for my previous company. Yesterday, I was working on my computer and heard roaring laughter coming from Avery's room. I walk in and found Jason and Avery dancing and singing away. 




 By sheer coincidence, this popped up on my Timehop today. Avery was only 1 in this picture.

Boy, are these kiddos lucky to have such a great dad! It makes me heart melt.
