How many times have you wished you would have chosen better? I know in our family, there are many opportunities to choose the easier, more fun, tastier...grass is greener option. But when we actually take the time to weigh our options and pick the best of the good...the results are ALWAYS positive. Join me over at The Laundry Moms as I share about training appetites in Brussel Sprouts or Chocolate.

My husband always says, “Next to your decision to follow Christ as your savior, who you marry is the most important decision you will make in your lifetime.” I have to say I agree with him on that point! Marriage is wonderful and hard. It’s giving up yourself but finding newness in the two that have become one. Marriage, a healthy marriage, is the most beautiful example of Christ’s love. A selfless, yet completely fulfilling relationship. So why is it SO HARD? Why do so many people walk away instead of fight? Why is there so much pain in so many marriages?
Since late in November, I have been healing from some pretty deep wounds, and although the wound is healing well, and is not as raw as it once was, I realized last week as I was trying to reassess and set goals and priorities for 2015, that my thoughts were still being influenced by it's bite. So I came to the Cross, tainted glasses adorning my eyes, as feelings of a failure…confused, bewildered and astonished resurfaced.
Yesterday I had some time alone in my house. It was unexpected so I really didn't have a plan for my time. I decided I'd do a little deep cleaning in my kitchen. One thing led to another and I ended up re-configuring the entire layout (moving baker's rack, decorative tables and walk groupings) It's funny how we get stuck in a rut sometimes. We go about our routine and really don't give a thought to it. So often I can let the activities we are involved in, especially the ones I'm in charge of, feel like a weight around my neck.
