I am so thankful that we have such a strong marriage. I know I can share everything with Rich. He is my safe place.
I'm especially thankful for a change in my heart that I had early in our marriage. I remember exactly the moment. I had been arguing with Rich about some little thing. It was something you might argue with a child about...I corrected his behavior in the same way that I would a child. And then I had a little revelation..."I'm not his mother. I'm not in charge of him. He is his own person. And we don't have to argue like this." It seems so silly now but it was really a turning point.
Dear Lord, Thank you for blessing us with a strong union. Help us to trust each other and to be kind and gentle with one another. Guide us to live the truth. In your name, I pray.
