Did you know it is #marriageweek in Australia? Our church set the challenge this week for all the married couples to have a “date night” and send in a selfie BUT since Deaj and I have 5 kids and zero babysitting, our date night selfie will just be of us in our track pants on the couch watching Better Call Saul. And let’s be honest – there’s no place we would rather be anyway 🤣.
We have been together for 16 years and married for almost 13 now. We have had good times, we have had crappy times. We have had seasons of worry and seasons of grace, we have seen the sun rise from the tops of mountians (metaphorically speaking….we are not morning people 🤣🤣) and we have clung to lifeboats in the deepest of seas. We have had far more kids than we ever planned and moved way more than we ever imagined. Our marriage is still being built, day after day, brick after brick.
Our number one rule comes from Ephesians, where Paul says we are not to “Let the sun go down on your anger”. This is easy on small issues, almost impossible on the big issues BUT this is still our number one rule. We have our disagreements, our fights like everyone else….but we try to talk it through before we go to sleep. We want to start our day afresh. We have broken it many times, but it’s still our rule.
Have you got a rule in your marriage?
