Well this summer I took the marriage challenge, here is the website http://www.womenlivingwell.org/. It was about putting our husband's needs in front of ours, seeing the positive instead of the negative, submitting to him (yes there's the nasty 's' word again). I can't say enough that I have grown to see my husband in a whole new light. He's not just the breadwinner or my 'roommate with benefits'...He is my other half, He is my best friend and my lover ( oh and yes, that part of the marriage got better too!!) So thank you God that you used this challenge to help women ,like me , grow to love and know our husbands more:) May no man or women or anything..separate what God has joined together.

So this is the final week of the Completing him challenge. Trust me, it's been an interesting summer discovering different ways to make my hubby happy and to feel oneness in our marriage. If you missed any week here is the blog http://womenlivingwell-courtney.blogspot.com/2010/08/kiss-him-like-you-mean-it-final-week-of.html So here we are ...Kiss Him Like You Mean it. I just got done reading Intimate Issues by Linda Dillow. Wow talk about a wonderful book. It taught me how to be intimate with my hubby and to be the wife that shows my hubby how much I love him. Whether we feel like "it" or not, we should show our husband. Being intimate with him does not only mean sex, but also the way we talk to him, we can write notes, send pics on our phones ( if you know what I mean) :) We need to show our husbands that they are appreciated and loved. Sex shows your husband that. Long kisses, hugs and sex is telling our husbands that we need them. Try reading the book Song of Songs in the Bible..it shows just how great sex can be and should be between husbands and wives. I have 3 kids...one that sleeps with us and we still have a great sex life. So you may have excuses that you don't have the time, or that you don't feel like it or that your tired. But God created sex to be a beautiful and loving time with our spouse and let's not take that time for granted.

Well this has been on my mind alot lately. It seems like we want things bigger and better...we need a bigger house, bigger car...bigger wardrobe. I actually had someone tell me that she would want a bigger house no matter what it cost. She only has 1 child..How big does she really need? We live in 1100sq ft. double wide mobile home. At this point we only owe $35,000 for it. Do I want a bigger home or a "real" home..of course I would love to, but do I need it? After losing almost 30lbs I NEED a bigger wardrobe but I am still wearing my old jeans just wearing a belt with them. I still drive a 2000 dodge Dakota which at this point I only owe 1,000 dollars. We didn't have a 'fancy' vacation this year but I'm fine with that. My husband and I have chose not to accrue anymore debt. We are hoping to be completely debt-free in 6 years. Bigger house=more furniture=more taxes=more heat/a/c..I feel the Lord telling me that I should owe no man anything. Remember we will not be remember for the things we had , but for the legacy we leave.
