Two shall be One ~ Stop Stewing

My husband and I have been married for 20 blissful, uneventful years!
I interrupt this figment of my imagination for a dose of reality...

You can read the rest of this article over at the CWO Internet Cafe'

Come see me!!

Another great message. Everything you said is so true of marriage. Five years ago, before we accepted Christ into our lives, my husband and I were 2 weeks away from our divorce becoming final. Our marriage had hit rock bottom. We started attending a great church, heard the good news for the first time, and our lives were transformed. All things are possible through Christ who strengthens me.

Great devotion, enjoyed it.

Praise and Coffee said...

Oh that is awesome!!! I'm so happy for you guys. And look how the Lord has blessed you.

I know! I feel bad putting it in so early but I have to have it posted by midnight and I can't stay up much past 10 PM.
Now that hubby is home from California, I can actually sleep good again.

Thanks Twinklemom and Denise!

Amen! I've been married 23 years, and have stewed and slammed often! However, once *I* stopped playing these games hardly anything even bothers me anymore. Why oh why do we do such silly things to ourselves?

Praise and Coffee said...

I'm so glad!
Last week when I asked you if you had received it, I found it in my car that day, so I just mailed it a week ago- I'm sorry! But I'm glad you have it now.

forgiveness is so important.

just in case someone is reading this that may be in a hrd place... I think that sometimes boundaries are important,too.

sometimes because of past issues a husband may not know the loving way to treat his wife. perhaps setting boundaries that say " I love you but you cannot talk to me that way... or curse at me... might be appropriate. of course, you HAVE to forgive or you are hurting yourself.

Thanks for your comments to me, Sue. They meant a lot!

Thank you so much for visiting/commenting my blog! I followed the link to Christian Women Online Magazine. I got a little hung up there for a while...all of those wonderful interviews and such!

I see you are from MI. Me too! It is always nice to see some Northerners on the seems as if most of my favorite blogs are written by Southern women!

Anyway, thank you for stopping by and I will visit you again often! I believe this connection is a God thing...I can share more about that later!

Blessings to you,

Aunt Angie said...

Sue, I will head over there and read...but wanted to let you know..I have added you as a favorite on my sidebar---if you don't mind. I know those that visit me faithfully will totally enjoy your devotional writing!
God bless you!

Hey Sue, just stopping by to say hello!!! And going to read your story!!!

Amrita said...

Thank you Sue, you are so sweet. i heard your message again with my Mom.

I wish my sister Namrita could read all this about marriage and discuss her problems with you girls and get advice and support. She 's had such a troubled marriage...her husband 's been unfaithful to her and and tortured her mentally and emotionally.they are patched up now but need a lot of counselling and support. She lives very far away from us.They have a computer but no internet.

Oh the wisdom is soo good thank you from the best cupboard slammer and dishwasher slammer in these parts.

Jenster said...

I haven't read the article yet, but I'm headed that way.

I saw your screen name at Gretchen's and had to come see. Praise and Coffee - two of my most favorite things!!

BTW - My husband and I will celebrate 20 blissful (except for when it wasn't) years in June.

Rhonda said...

Awesome writing Sue!! What a great reminder. I know that whenever my husband and I have had a struggle, I've usually discovered that I've got some changing to do.

Thanks for tackling this oh-so-important topic. Marriage has been one of my passions too.

Bless you girl!
