Marriage, My Husband, Scripture

Take the plunge…

I somehow wandered over to The Diaper Diaries and found a very intriguing challenge. It’s based upon the following scripture:

So do not deprive each other of sexual relations. The only exception to this rule would be the agreement of both husband and wife to refrain from sexual intimacy for a limited time, so they can give themselves more completely to prayer. Afterward they should come together again so that Satan won’t be able to tempt them because of their lack of self-control.

(1 Cor. 7:5, NLT)

So far I have moved the TV out of our bedroom and into the loft. Next up is to de-clutter. That might take awhile, but I am determined! I will take pictures as soon as my camera battery charges.

It’s not to late to sign up and join in on the fun. Are you willing to accept the challenge?

Love

I am truly blessed to have the priviledge of spending the rest of my life with my best friend. I am so in love with my husband. We have our ups and downs as a married couple. Sometimes he makes me so angry I can’t see straight, thankfully those times are few and far between. Sometimes we just go day by day with nothing new or exciting to report. Sometimes I am filled with such a supreme feeling of love that it brings tears to my eyes. Today is one of those days. From stolen kisses to the simple act of making our family hamburgers for lunch, I am so in love with this man. He brought me home a surprise present and I’m pretty sure it is a candy bar. I’m so craving chocolate, and I’m pretty sure that’s what I’m going to get! He is a fantastic father. The fun he has with our children, the laughter. How he works with Brianna on homework and coaches her soccer team. He is Katie’s prince charming. The way he snuggles with Alex. The father and son bonding over football already, so adorable!

My previous entry was kind of depressing. I am confident in one thing though, my husband knows me through and through. Sometimes better than I know myself. I cherish him. I love him. I am beyond thankful to have him in my life.

If you read this, let me know how much you love your husband or significant other. I love reading stories of love. It’s romantic, and I always love reading a bit of romance 🙂

Marriage, My Husband

Struggles..

Brian and I’s intimacy has been on the backburner. Ever since I was pregnant with Katie, things have been bad physically between us. It started when he confessed to having an addiction with internet porn. I was devistated. I don’t think I have ever cried so hard in my life. I felt so degraded and it didn’t help that I was hugely pregnant either. It rocked Brian’s world to see how much he had hurt me. He hasn’t done it since, but the damage has been done. My self-image has been shattered. I look at my post-kid body and feel as though I just can’t compare. I’m not sure how to get past this really. It has really shaken our marriage up. I’ve been praying on it a lot.

I tried so hard in regards to being physical last night and in the end I just couldn’t do it. I mean, I can kiss him, but anything more than that, I just can’t do. He got very frustrated with me, said I teased him and went up to bed. He apologized for his behavior this morning in a note. Said he feels awful for what he has done. I just can’t seem to get past this. It has hurt me so deeply..

I really need a lot of prayer on this. Prayer that God will give me a physical desire for my husband and that he would soften my heart towards him as well.

I am beyond..

pissed off right now. I want to take the damn computer and bash it in with a bat and then throw it out the f-ing window.

Sabrina.. if you’re reading this, please let me know what your email is..

I need to talk to you and I can’t get on AIM at all during the day..

Just pray for my sanity now girls, because I swear, I could kill someone right now…

And I know I should be “supportive” but quite frankly I can’t.

And I don’t feel like sharing any of it either..

I just want to cry………………………

Taking..

Brian out to lunch today.

I just really appreciate all he does.. He takes care of so much, even around the house, he does more than I.. And he understands when I don’t feel well, or just don’t have the energy to do anything. He takes everything in stride and he is trying to figure out how we could make it work about staying at home. Even thinking of taking on a part time job to make it happen. He takes such good care of Brianna. It is so sweet. He is just so caring.. He is a wonderful husband and I am so lucky to have him in my life.
