I'd Do It Again

November 18, 2021

My wife will sacrifice her time for me. She will allow me to have time to do the things that I want to do, and will stay at home with the kids or whatever it takes for that to happen. That makes me feel very important.

500 Hours Together: A Family Time Challenge
There are 8,760 hours in a year. You’ll spend roughly 2,080 of those hours at work. On average, almost 900 hours swiping on social media. How much family time are you getting in? 


For my wife, just like every so often, I plan a special little trip for her and usually some of her friends. She definitely enjoys the camaraderie. They come back, they're very giddy. It's frightening.

BL: Listen to this woman describe the time she and her husband signed a written marriage covennant. Clip: We came home from church. Our boys were our witnesses, we read the scriptures that are on the covennant, repeated the vows to each other, sealed it with a kiss and it's hanging in our hallway.

I have written my own story of things that I remember about my life and now I'm preserving the things that I want my grandchildren and great - grandchildren to know about me.

We always were quoted a certain Scripture that tells you why you should obey, and, "If I don't whup you, I don't love you," and all these Scriptures and things. Every single time my dad or my mother got the opportunity, they always backed up their philosophy with the Word.

You know, back when Day Timers were popular, I tried using a Day Timer, I'd lose it. It sometimes feels hopeless! But I have found that it helps me to email myself or leave myself a voice mail at work. That's one way I remember things.

Some things that my son would get angry with me - times when I would put undue stress on him, or um, expectations that he didn't understand or was not able to meet.

The things that teenagers wear today that I think are strange are some of the piercings. I've been okay with some earrings, but when they start to wear tongue rings, that's just a little odd for me.

Really afraid of how others will perceive me invading their privacy to ask them a personal question.

Our Sunday schedule is…we go to church, eat lunch, and then we all take naps. And then when we get up, we play. We're rested, we're focused, and we're ready to tackle the week.

My wife and I have several older couples that have been role models for us in our marriage and great encouragment to just hang in there and go the distance in our marriage relationship.
