Gen 3:16 “Her desire shall be for her husband and he shall rule over her.”
I love my husband so much. There are seasons in our life where his is crazy busy, and we are currently in one of those seasons. Every year I struggle with the winter months. It’s cold and I don’t get out a lot. The kids are busy with school, basketball and girl scouts. Barrett’s doing so many ball games and life just gets hectic during this time. I don’t know if I gets more selfish or what, but it’s during this time that I want to be with him the most. I even threw out last night – out of nowhere may I say – that we take a trip away somewhere just the two of us. I couldn’t have mentioned at a worst time. Not that he doesn’t want to spend time with me, he just barely has time to breathe, let alone worry about satisfying my selfishness. This is the time of year when I need to step up and take care of him. I need to pray more for him and do those little for him that makes his life easier and less stressful. I need to ask God to show me what he needs from me. Last night, I started reading The Love Dare by Stephen and Alex Kendrick. Based off the movie, Fireproof, it’s like a 40 day devotional of things you can do to strengthen your relationship with your spouse. Now, I must admit I have stare to read this book several times before and I haven’t completed it. But, by the help of God I will persevere and will become a better wife and learn how to love and care for my husband better.
