All heavy laden acquainted with sorrow
May Christ in our marrow, carry us home
From alabaster come blessings of laughter
A fragrance of passion and joy from the truth
Grant the unbroken tears ever flowing
From hearts of contrition only for You
May sin never hold true that love never broke through
For God’s mercy holds us and we are His own
This road that we travel, may it be the straight and narrow
God give us peace and grace from You, all the day
Shelter with fire, our voices we raise still higher
God give us peace and grace from You, all the day through
we start couples counseling. I’m kinda looking forward to it, but then again I’m not. It’ll be good for us I know, but I’m kinda scared of what’s gonna get pulled out of the woodwork. Guess we’ll have to wait and see. Hmm…
I do the dishes, and cook, and clean, and do the laundry, I pay the bills, take care of the dog, and take care of my husband. He tells me I’m an amazing wife. He’s definitely learning to be an amazing husband. He’s never been one before so for a newbie he’s outstanding. :-) I love him so much.
all along. I’ve been battling depression which makes me a very volitile person when confronted, obviously not making matters any better. So I’ve been to the doctor and have been on new anti-depressants for more than a month now, and am going to see a head shrinker. Already we’ve been doing better, disagreements are handled without raised voices, I don’t fly off the handle at every little thing, our sex life has even picked back up. So I think we’re doing pretty good. Acting like the newlyweds that we are. ;-)
it’s time to go to counseling. I can’t seem to get him to listen to me about anything. It’s time for intervention. And when I do get him to listen he never really heeds the information he’s given. Why are guys so hard?
we’re doing a lot better. When we argued before we would cuss at each other a LOT! Now if one slips we’ll say “Don’t cuss me” and we’ll sit down and talk thru what ever is bothering us. It’s a good thing. No ame calling. No cussing. Just sitting down and talking about our problems. It’s nice. I’m really glad I have such a wonderful husband. He’s my BFF! (=
when we argue. But we haven’t had a bad fight in quite some time. I’m happy about this. Although there are times when we talk to each other but we don’t listen really. I’m trying to work on this. I want us to have a great marriage. I don’t want us to be a statistic. You know all the people getting married under 25 that get divorced within 3 years of marriage. I want us to be the exception to the rule and be married for 75 years. I love him and want us to have an amazing marriage. He’s my perfect match. (=
We’re doing very good with communication since he’s been gone almost a year now. We joke sometimes that once he comes home if we need to have a very intense talk then he’ll have to go sit in the car and call me. But I think we’ll do fine. We’re strong, and I have every confidence in us that we’ll do just fine. I’m still trying to be better than I am though.
