And together we learn

Sunday, September 10, 2006


Every week we stagger in after church, strip the kids of their Sunday clothes, and tuck them into bed. They are all so exhausted that they sleep soundly for hours. It's one of our favorite Sunday traditions! Steve and I will sometimes nap also, or on really good days, we have an inventory meeting.

This had got to be one of the reasons we are so happily married. This institution has helped to keep us focused on our goals and our marriage, and it gives us a platform to talk about problems, concerns, schedules, and events. We don't do it every Sunday like we should, but when it happens, its awesome.

Today we had Big Long Important Fabulous Talks about our financial goals and plans. We set some huge goals, and we are very excited about them. There is so much power in unity. We open and close our meeting with prayer so we can have the spirit of the Lord guiding us in our marriage and goals. We talked a lot about what it means to have a broken heart and a contrite spirit, and decided that gratitude is so central to the idea. When we acknowledge God in all things, and are grateful for our abundant blessings, it is impossible to be prideful, because we are so aware of the gulf between us and God.

It is a beautiful thing to be united with your spouse with perfect understanding. I love marriage!!!
