Note: first of all I selected a photo where you couldn't see my pasted early 90's hair. Second of all...of course my wedding had a beach theme...(I love the water...second it wasn't hard to have a beach theme when you live near the ocean.) Boy my dress was long and our hopes were so high. Well that was 16 years ago...and no one could have told me how HARD being married is at times. It's a great ride...but it's hard work to allow God to use you to be part of a team.
I think the key to making things a little easier is to do things that are family centered. If you consistently hang with women who aren't family oriented...you'll develop the "grass is greener on the other side" syndrome. If you're friends aren't respectful of your husband and your family..."you'll start to complain and nag" like they do. So...although this is suppose to be a flashback Friday photo...I can't help but post a little about keeping our relationships in line. If you're not married...lift up a prayer for some married folks you know...your boss, your pastor...whoever. And if you're married like I am do what my husband and I do. We don't engage in activities that aren't family friendly. You won't find him hanging with friends at a bar and I'm not going to girl's night out at the sushi club. Come to think of that...that wouldn't be moving forward...that would be a bad 80's flashback.
