  3. Good one, T! I’ve only been married 1 year and going in I had no idea what I was getting myself into – like you I just thought things would work themselves out because of our love for each other, haha! I see married couples all around me and they seem to have it all together and I’m just over here like “this is hard work!” Marriage is not what the fairy tales make it out to be and I’m not saying it’s not a beautiful thing because it is! Despite the disagreements, arguments, mean words, hurt feelings, and little things you find out about your spouse that annoy you x100, if God is in the midst of the union it gets easier to get through those tough times. In the beginning, I remember I would not budge when we would argue and now (after many prayers to God asking that He would show me how to extend grace towards my husband and take away my pride) I’ll be the first one to say “ok, I was wrong – what can I do to make it right?” Now, it ain’t easy every time but God sees me through that’s for sure. And some days I fail. Thankfully, my husband is NOT like me where he holds on to things. Anyway, as a married couple it is vital to just chill and be goofy sometimes. It doesn’t have to be all work and no play. I still don’t think we have it all together and I don’t think we will for a while lol but I’m okay with that because in the end we both are doing our best to let God do what He has to do within our marriage to show others that without Him we wouldn’t be where we’re at. Personally, the ingredients that make our marriage are: joy/laughter, grace/forgiveness, commitment to one another, lots of GOD, quality time w/ each other, and love!

    What a beautiful post. After 22 years our recipe has definitely been refined. The reality of it is that you always have to work on your recipe; it’s work every day. But the main ingredients are love, grace, communication, sense of humor, forgiveness and GOD! Never stop refining!
