It’s not always easy to put the time into our marriage as much as it deserves. We must remind ourselves that our marriage is the foundation upon which everything in our lives is built. As such, it should be respected and invested in the most.
If you have children, showing them a strong and healthy marriage is one of the greatest gifts and lessons you could give to them.
When dealing with addictions, often the spouses have been neglected or even abandoned in many ways. Also, your spouse is typically the person that fights harder for you than any other person - with that they deserve the utmost gratitude. Though you have treated them so terribly they have still stood by and held out their hand to help pull you back up.
Show them everyday that you are grateful and that you love and respect and cherish them.
Earn back the trust and safety you promised them on your wedding day. Show them who you really are.
We go through seasons.
Two weeks ago I was worried about my kids' library time & the size of my waist. I was encouraged by my new muscles & my new dinner recipes for Dad. I bitched about our small apartment & how our bills were so high. I chuckled at the old man downstairs who thinks he's our neighborhood weatherman when he told me there's a storm in the Atlantic...
This week? This week I'm worried about my friends' health because they're living in 90 degree heat with no electricity, roof or water. I'm devoting every day with my family to restoring this community. I'm smiling because what the devil meant for evil, God uses for GOOD. -
We are stronger than we've ever been. As a family, as a church & as a community! So that is the season I am in. Follow me to see what the rest of the year looks like or unfollow me if you're just looking for weightloss pics. I love y'all!!❤️❤️❤️ P.S. I'm still rooting for all of you!!😘

Finally our city library has been completed in the city. Previous library at CBD was damaged due to the earthquake. We had been waiting for 7 years for renewal one! It is slow pace to rebuilt central city, but it has been stepping ahead and changed day by day. New delux cinema also opened recently. I'm so thrilled to seeing the development. My husband was keen to go for Teppanyaki again. It was lovely lunch😉#library#christchurch#rebuild#クライストチャーチ#新しい#図書館#日本の本#復興#街の#活気 シティの図書館がやっと完成！地震で打ち壊しになってから7年も経ったけど、こうして少しずつ復興していくのを見守ることが出来て嬉しい🌌
This week has been a hard week for my little community, each day I hear a new heartbreaking story, from a person full of Hope for the future. I'm in love with this areas come together attitude. A customer told me this yesterday when I teared up at his story and it is so true. While it may be sad, we'll get through it and be stronger for it. #llanoflood2018
