Our marriage truly is a gift from God!
35 Things I’ve Learned:
20. Allow space for each person to pursue their passions. My husband LOVES to hunt and I have not always been a good hunting wife. I’m leaning to give him that space.
21. Find at least one thing you like to do together. Jim and I’s one thing is gardening.
22. In any conflict ask God to show you your part in the conflict and ask Him to show your hubby his part. I promise He’ll show you your part if you ask and this will keep you from living in pride.
24. Recognize the differences between males and females and how they think. In our first 10 years, I didn’t understand this principle and it caused a lot of conflicts. Gary Smalley has some great teachings on this.
There you have it the 35 lessons I’ve learned in no particular order.
If God can do it in my marriage He can do it in yours.
