1 Corinthians 13:4

Do you ever have those days where you want to punch everyone in the face that speaks to you? Well I'm having one of those days. I try so hard to be strong, but sometimes I just can't help but notice how many things sadden me in this world. I try to focus on those I love and love me back, but what do you do when no matter what you do, your still not enough??? The older I get, I notice how much I care less about more things...But even though you try so hard to ignore your frustration or how unloved you feel, it's still there. There's still a part of you that feels really...hopeless. I hope someday that I don't care anymore and that when others try to wound me I remain solid. This is one reason why I feel that your foundation with God can never fully be built, you have to want to work on it until all of the cracks disappear and you are unshaken by fear, regrets, and pain. I watched Courageous last week and something always speaks to me about that movie. "I don't want to just be a good enough father, I want to know I did everything I could possibly do." That's an amazing thought and I started thinking today, Am I good enough? I'm a woman who truly believes in that resolution, that not only do I want to be good enough, but I want to show everyday that I am worthy to have my wonderful husband and son in my life. Some people think that after your married you stop trying, that you have them reeled in, so it's time to stop working, WRONG, It makes me incredibly mad how simple the thought of marriage is in young women and men? It's not "Candyland" and rainbows, it's beautiful, but it has uphill battles and trials you have to make it through together. You can't grow apart through bad times, you have to remain permanently linked as one. God says when you are married you are one flesh, one body, two souls become bound together as one. That is not something to be taken lightly! Everyday I'm reminded on things that I could do to strengthen my marriage. Now I understand it is very easy to point fingers and say why doesn't he change? He needs to improve...No. I'm speaking about turning off all fingers you want to point and really thinking about what YOU want to improve on. I started reading "The Resolution For Women" by Shirer today. I have already fallen in love with it, it's straight forward and I would recommend it to anyone, who is a woman, if your single, married, a mother, anything. I bought it along with the resolution for men for my husband and put them both under our tree so we can read them together. We all hope that we are at least adequate to our spouse, but I was depressed by how far I have come, but how far I still have to go in becoming the wife my husband deserves. A lot of people believe the phase, "Happy wife, happy life." I can't say I fully believe that phase, I more want to make sure that my entire family is happy. I know we will go through hard times and sadness, but I want to know I have done all I can to make our lives as bright as they can be. I can already very much tell that God led me to this book and it will make changes in me. I'm willing to surrender and I know our union can only get stronger. Everyday I'm reminded on how much I meant my vows, and I add even more to what I wrote on our wedding day. I find even more that I can put into our lives and I always know I can work even harder to be more than good enough, to be everything that God has called me to be. These are my resolutions and what I will be working on out of the book, "1. A Resolution To Be Content

I do solemnly resolve to embrace my current season of life, and will maximize my time in it. I will resist the urge to hurry through or circumvent any portion of my journey but will live with a spirit of contentment.

2. A Resolution To Champion Biblical Femininity

I will champion God’s model for womanhood in the face of a post-feminist culture. I will teach it to my daughters and encourage its support by my sons.

3. A Resolution To Value Myself and Celebrate Others

I will accept and celebrate my uniqueness, and to esteem and encourage the distinctions I admire in others.

4. A Resolution To Be Devoted To Christ and Defined By His Word

I will live as a woman answerable to God and faithfully committed to His Word.

5. A Resolution To Devote My Best to God’s Priorities For Me

I will seek to devote the best of myself, my time, and my talents to the primary roles the Lord has entrusted to me in this phase of my life.

6. A Resolution To Esteem Others

I will be a woman who is quick to listen and slow to speak. I will care about the concerns of others and esteem them more highly than myself.

7. A Resolution To Release Others From The Prison of My Hurt

I will forgive those who have wronged me and reconcile with those I have wronged.

8. A Resolution To Live with the Highest Standard of Virtue and Purity

I will not tolerate evil influences even in the most justifiable form in myself or my home, but will embrace and encourage a life of purity.

9. A Resolution To Care

I will pursue justice, love mercy, and extend compassion toward others.

10. A Resolution To Be the Kind Of Woman Who Truly Blesses Her Man

I will be faithful to my husband and honor him in my conduct and conversation in order to bring glory to the name of the Lord. I will aspire to be a suitable partner for him to help him reach his God-given potential.

11. A Resolution To Train My Children in Righteousness

I will demonstrate and teach my children how to love God with all their hearts, minds, and strength, and will train them to respect authority and live responsibly.

12. A Resolution To Make My Home a Welcome Place To Be

I will cultivate a peaceful home where God’s presence is sensed not only through acts of love and service, but also through the pleasant and grateful attitude with which I perform them.

13. A resolution to live today with tomorrow in mind

I fully resolve to make today’s decisions with tomorrow’s impact in mind. I will consider my current choices in light of those who will come after me." 
If you want to go on this journey with me, your more than welcome, if you believe in being married for your lifetime and no less. :) Since this post was about my marriage and all sorts of other random things I figured I'd put one of our songs! :)))
