Can we agree on something?

A healthy marriage produces a healthy family, healthy community and a healthy country.

If you can find a couple that has many differences it is my hubby and I. Our differences are inexplicable – what we like, how we think, just incredibly different. The only things we can agree without discussion is that we love the Lord, each other and our boys. Everything else has two opinions, his and mine, and needs to be discussed so we can come to an agreement. But this is how two become one. If we were the same our relationship would be boring. We complement each other. In our differences, we just try again and never quit.

Can two walk together, unless they are agreed? Amos 3:3 (NKJV)

Many times, we need to sit down and talk, talk, talk… yes talk, and not only talk but also listen respectfully to what the other has to say. I like to talk – don’t all stay at home moms do? But this talking is not only the blah, blah our husbands sometimes hear from us after a stressful day with the children, this one is more intense. This conversation takes time, patience and respect. This is a conversation where we discuss our opinions until we agree or come to a mutual compromise. Sometimes our conversations are short, give me your opinion, this is mine, and we are done – we agree. On other occasions, it takes much longer and might even take a few tries before we can come to a mutual agreement. What matters is that as a married couple we need to agree to move our marriage and family forward.

Praise and worship music is one tool we use to help us get our thoughts together. Hit play when the atmosphere is not so relaxed.

 Here is one of my favorites.

Who said marriage was easy? Not easy but possible…

Just keep breathing

You can do this Lee  ~ COME ON ~

Have you ever need to encourage yourself to do something you know is good for you? I do it every day.

Exercising is hard for me. Is it that way for everyone? At the beginning of the week I try to decide which days I will exercise. This will help me mentally prepare. I don’t think about it too much. If I spend too much time preparing to go exercise or thinking about it, I won’t do it. I literally drag myself to do some exercise. Why is this? I don’t know but it is super hard to start. I do know it’s good for my health and will help with the weight loss so I’m pushing myself, but still dragging. Current weight 168.5 lbs.

9/11 We will not forget

Still fresh in my memory, it was a Tuesday morning, the day that America changed, September 11, 2001.

While working someone said, “an airplane hit the World Trade Center”. I was confused, those buildings are super high, how can an airplane not see them? Not too long after that we hear a second airplane crashed into the 2nd tower. My heart dropped. How can this happen? There’s got to be an error. As we listened to the news, confusion raised and I had more questions than answers. Today, 16 years later, as I’m writing this, I have to stop and take a moment to breathe. When I think of this day, the day America changed, the feelings are still here just like 16 years ago.

I didn’t know any of the precious lives that were lost that day, but today I want to HONOR them and those who risked their lives to rescue others. Remembering them still hurts, but we must continue and press on and that is the reason for this post.
