The grass is greener on the other side….

…..something I tell myself constantly.  I do believe it but when your in the midst of the mountain to see the greener grass it takes a lot of the “I know i can, I know I can, I know I can mentality.”  Our family just got back from an amazing camping trip that we do yearly with our extended family.  It was peaceful, fun, energizing.  Only to come home to the mountain of “problems” slapping us directly in our face.  How can we have so much fun, forget about “real life” and come back to feeling its ten times worst. 

Well I have to give God some mega thanks for an Amazing Husband who will remind me that these trials are not forever and that they make us stronger.  I mean I do know that but i have to say he is way better at handling the initial shock to a situation than I am. 

That is exactly why I believe that God has given us the husband’s in our live to be the Head of our family, the leader of the pack!  If we as women can set aside our own wants, independencies, and any other thing this world tries to make woman believe they should be and let our men lead our families will be so much happier.  After two weeks of not having an “adult” conversation with my husband; we lay in bed and had the best conversation I can remember in a long time.  I am so thankful for a husband, who at times i dont think hears me, that listens to me. 

We are not perfect by no means.  But if we live in a marriage where we give give give to eachother we will love love love eachother. 

“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace.  In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

Love Contagiously in Christ,
