To See My Love

randomlychad  —  November 21, 2011 — 8 Comments

Recently, my wife and I had a misunderstanding about something I wrote. Indeed, this was the first time I can recall that she adamantly did not like something I’d written. A lot of factors contributed to this, and I subsequently mistakenly was too open about things (instead of holding both her heart, and our marriage, sacred).

And really, that is the crux of the matter: if I had done a better job of shepherding her heart over the course of the years, I believe much of our difficulty could have been averted (or at least drastically reduced). Mea culpa. I’m just very thankful at this point that she is giving me (yet another) chance to win her heart.

Which I fully intend to cherish, and hold sacred. I am taking steps to ensure this is so by:

Enrolling in a “Life Training” class at church; and by

Signing us up for a “Love & Respect” seminar this coming February.

Communication is so foundational, and I want to do all I can to keep those lines open.

I want her to see the love I say bear for her.

Since many of you were witness to my meltdown (of “blograstic” proportions), I thought I would update you. I would also like to thank you all for praying, and for continuing in prayer.

I am still on a break from blogging, and will return to radio silence. Just didn’t wanted to leave you–my faithful readers, and friends–hanging.

Have a happy Thanksgiving! See you in the new year!

  • 🙂 This sounds like a better approach. We’ll still be here when you get back. Take as much time as you need.

  • So sorry Chad -- a sense of humor is key to any good relationship -- that and good communication. Sounds like you’re on the right track of getting back to both 🙂

  • Looking forward to hearing what has gone on during your break.

  • Chelle White

    Will continue to pray for you both.

    Also, a blog I read might interest you (you may already know it). http://refineus.org/ Trish and Justin were separated for a time because of infidelity, and God has restored their relationship, and given them a vision of restoring marriages, or retaining marriages. There is a lot to be gleaned from them whether a marriage is on the rocks or rock solid. 🙂

    • Thanks much, Michelle!

      Will indeed check out that website.

      How is Spring down under?

    Great article

  • I wasn’t around during any of this--due to my own break--but I will be praying for you and yours. God Bless.

    • Thanks, Matt! Likewise praying for you as you move into your new work.
