|Me at 4 – wish I could keep that kind of childlike joy in my adulthood
Today on Marriage Monday we have been asked to complete the following prompts …
I am … always failing forward—learning from my mistakes, most of the time!
I want … to come alongside couples, women in particular, to help them grow stronger in their marriages and in their faith.
I have … a lot of baggage that I’ve worked through and am amazed at how much more I still have to deal with!
I wish … I was more gracious—like Christ. That’s my New Year’s commitment.
I hate … when I let my pride and fear take over.
I miss … the days when my boys were little and didn’t mind running to my arms for a sweet, surrendered hug.
I fear … growing old and becoming irrelevant.
I feel … excited about the opportunities God gives me daily to grow and help others grow.
I hear … worship songs in my head—get’s me through the day!
I smell … good coffee brewing every morning and afternoon to satisfy my craving for a cup of comfort.
I crave … mostly chocolate, but sometimes a good raspberry latte too. : )
I search … my family tree endlessly lately. Yeah, I admit it, I’m a genealogy geek.
I wonder … what my life will be like when I have daughter-in-laws and grandbabies.
I regret … not letting go of my pride and dropping the façade that “all is fine” sooner in life.
I love … my Savior, my loving husband and my three sweet (and macho) sons.
I ache … when my kids are hurting.
I care … about people’s spiritual and relational health.
I always … wanted to be a Kay Arthur or Beth Moore someday, but now I’m glad to be just me.
I am not … as quiet and serious as some people (who don’t know me well) think I am.
I believe … forgiveness and grace are the most important lessons I’m learning in life.
I dance … only when no one is around. (Really, I’m doing you a favor!)
I sing …
gladly in my church worship time. Gotta love a rockin’ worship service! Go Metro!
I cry … only in front of people that really matter to me.
I don’t always … let the tears flow when I should.
I fight … the tendency to fight over insignificant details.
I write … to live … and vice versa.
I never … keep my secrets for long—I know there is freedom in confession!
I listen … to uplifting Christian music all the time—I need all the help I can get throughout the day!
I need … supportive, gracious, Christian friends who are willing to tell me the truth in love.
I am happy … when I’m clinging to Jesus with all of my heart.
