Wifey Wednesday- What are you made of?

wifeywednesday-1

I wasn’t going to post a Wifey Wednesday post today because I had already discussed marriage in Monday’s post (you can read that here)

But, the topic that Sheila has today hit so close to home for me that I felt compelled to write about it:

What Makes A Marriage?

~Sitting by your wife’s side in the hospital, stroking her hair and conveying through your eyes what it would do to you to lose her.

~Biting your tongue and resisting the STRONG urge to say “I told you so” when your hubby doesn’t listen (to God or you) and it ends up costing you $1000 for a new hood on the car.

~Discussing your children with passion and vigor, knowing that you both want the same outcome for them: a strong walk with God.

~Laying in bed while he cuddles the puppy (he said he didn’t want) and talking about what the future could hold.

~Having someone you can tell anything to, share anything with and let the “real” you shine around.

~Going before your Lord together in prayer (no more intimate experience, my friends)

~Laughing at the “quirks” that make your mate special

~Knowing that God created this person to be your 1+1=1 equation.

Marriage is not an opt-out, feel good experience.  Marriage is experiencing the ups AND downs of life together and letting that histroy bind you closer to one another.

Marriage is hard work, it even hurts sometimes.  Dying to self is never easy.

Marriage is awesome and we were designed for the relationship.

Marriage is what you make of it.
