There’s no such thing as a perfect marriage.
But we tend to look at other unions and give our own a big thumbs-down.
I am writing this post in the middle of a turndown.
Here’s what happened:
Mid-morning, I was working on some blog technical issues (I am not a techie). While answering emails, getting a service provider to troubleshoot something and attending an online training. All at the same time.
“Overwhelmed” doesn’t even cut it close.
And then my husband, (he works from home,) stopped by my desk. My fingers are flying all over the keyboard, trying to keep my train of thought, hoping to finish just.one.thing.
I “hmm and ahh” i.e feign attention. And keep going.
But 2 minutes in, I am staring at the ceiling, sprawled on our bed. (Not what you are thinking)
I am deflated.
Defeated by all the things I can’t be. Beating up on myself for not giving my husband mental and emotional attention.
The rest of the day felt like a giant thumbs-down festival.
Have you ever felt like your circumstances ganged up against you, your marriage, your work, your momentum?
And you joined the choir?
Sometimes we just need a break.
A few days ago, I joined 4 delightful ladies for a round table talk about marriage and sex tips for the newlywed years and beyond.
J, Bonny, Gaye, and Chris host the insightful and funny Sex Chat For Christian Wives podcast, where they share the naked truth about godly sex.
We had a ball, talking about our most vivid memories of our weddings and when reality set in that marriage might take more work than we initially thought.
We also talked about newlywed obstacles and advice on overcoming it, plus more sexual intimacy tips and advice.
Grab your earphones and plug in for a dose of encouragement, laughter, and reminder that it’s okay not to have it all together. (God is good, even here.)
