In His clever, poignant, and often humorous way, God uses this visual of fueling a vehicle to point out potholes and dangerous pit stops in my marriage
Each year we take a few days for vision casting and planning for the next twelve months, and along with developing our family vision and mission statements, we've started working on what I like to call our Family Crest.
I'm taking back the management of my day—15 minutes at a time. Back in the busiest season of my life, I made a practice of tracking my daily schedule in 15 minute increments. I know I didn't come up with the idea on my own, but not quite sure where it came from. It was awesome! Suddenly I found so much more time in my day.
Today I'm joining Amberly and some other amazing gals for a monthly linkup on Marriage & Relationship Goals. The purpose of this linkup is to promote making intentional choices in our relationships and I've already been inspired so much by the goals shared by gals in past posts. My marriage goals for the month of August are simple and while there's a lot I could do, most themes boil down to two main objectives:
Sometimes I have several beginnings in a single morning. False starts that are incrementally readjusted as I align my focus, my purpose, and my attitude.
I have years of experience on the receiving end of awkward comments about having children. Crazy awkward. The kind of comments that come from good intentions but leave the recipient feeling misunderstood, annoyed, and sometimes, in tears.
I don't know what I'm doing. No matter how much I research or pray, independent of classes taken, clubs joined or real life experience gained, most things are beyond my understanding. And for now, I'm trying to be okay with that.
