Okay im getting deep but....

Just sitting here thinking about relationships. We talked about relationships this morning at church, and after the day i've had it's no wonder the word "relationship" has come up so much. Dealing with some friends that are going through some marriage difficulty and amongst other things, thinking about why they work out the way they do. It seems like just when you think every thing is going great...bam. I wonder why God makes us the way we are..two completely different people with different opinions, personalities, and ways of relating. Maybe life would be to boring if we were the exact replica of each other.

Do we ever think how are lives would be drastically different if that person wasn't around. Just sayin...

I think sometimes we tend to put our selves first ALL OF THE TIME when in reality you should put others first. Choosing to give selflessly and doing "giving" to them what you would want to be given and done to you. Hard..yes..impossible..no.

Cars don't run for 200, 000 miles with out an oil change and new tires...

"Our marriage shouldn't take this much work. " (Trust me it should)

Sometimes it feels like well maybe if I was this way then he/she would be this way or if he/she would just be this way then it would be so much better and easier. In reality you can't change them, you must look within yourself.

That's when you get on your knees and start praying.

I wish I could hear that sermon. Do they do podcasts? I am doing a bible study on Jonah and "Life Interrupted". Sometimes God interrupting your life is more of a divine intervention, even though we may not see it that way at the time. We know that ALL too well as military wives!
