This summer has found me chasing after God as I work towards becoming a better wife. Challenging at times, but oh so rewarding! I've completed Courtney's Completing Him Challenge, I've prayed for Matt daily by reading The Power of a Praying Woman by Stormie Omartian, I've journaled instead of venting / arguing, and I've studied the Proverbs 31 woman. There were days that I struggled, lost my temper, and took things out on Matt when I definitely shouldn't have. I've allowed sin and Satan to get the best of me and been far from God's heart and desire for my marriage. But, after those down times and crawling out of those pits, I've seen excellence in our marriage. I've found a deeper love for my husband. I've been given a stronger desire to respect him as the head of our household and my spiritual leader. And, I've grown in my relationship with my heavenly Father.
As I will the humidity to leave our area, I've begun to research the fall bulbs I'll plant for spring flowers and look for recipes for fall baking. I can't wait for the fall! New adventures in the garden, learning in the kitchen, and starting fall #2 as a wife with my fabulous husband.
