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!
