We have been quiet this summer. When you have 4 kids off from school and full time jobs, summer can just be sheer craziness.
You try to enjoy time as a couple…
You try to enjoy time as a family…
You try to stay on top of your duties at work…
BUT – you fail because you can’t do it all.
As Joya and I approach our second wedding anniversary, I am so thankful to have found my earthly Lighthouse – my love Joya. Joya is an amazing woman who has endured more than a wife should in the first two years of marriage. I have seen and witnessed her pain. And as her husband I feel it too.
Together, we have faced more struggles than couples should face during our honeymoon period – almost all of it out of our control. Yet, how we approach those struggles IS within our control and we continue to work on our marriage, and our communication with each other, so we can weather the storms when the unexpected ones hit.
I know these struggles have and will continue to make us stronger. We are aware of the blessings we receive every week. We know God is preparing us for good and big things ahead. And we know we are here to share our struggles and triumphs with YOU! Throughout this crazy summer we have shared some great times as a family!
We’ll share more about our summer at a later time. In the meantime, I hope you find time to spend with your spouse – and family – all while working your job! Just know you can’t do it all and that’s ok. No one expects you to do it all. You just do your best while trying super hard to remain a loving and respectful spouse.
Blessings to you all!
