this is where i share my whole soul. i write about my struggles. my joys. my amazing life with my handsome husband. our photography company. our cat. wedding seasons. our travels. community. beer and coffee dates. probably lots about pizza, too. i believe that life is worth living. and sharing my story connects me to beautiful souls. i feel like i grow into a better human when i write and read stories. we all have something amazing to share with the world. this is my life in pink. 

wednesday night :: short story

this week feels really long and it's only wednesday.
want to know why?
because i find myself thinking "ugh. he's not doing this" or "he's not getting this ready" or "i just wish he'd do what my brain is secretly thinking he should do..instead of what he is doing"
and it's exhausting.

i've been so selfish this week. i feel very emotional and thinking my way is the best way.

but, thankfully, i've been meditating on Psalm 100 and also re-reading my favorite marriage books and i've been able to NOT have unnecessary arguments with my man! whooo!

every time i think "he's being so selfish" i think twice and look into my own heart. and sure enough, the heart is looking pretty ugly.
so it's been most helpful!

i urge you, friends, to read and meditate on God's Word and you will be so happy you did.
you will have strength that you alone cannot have and you will be able to see the good in your husband (or wife) and choose to honor him through your decisions.

i want to become the wife God designed me to be. the only way i can get there is through Jesus.
what a fun journey!
