Wednesdays Full of Wisdom : Helpmate.

This past month has been such a whirlwind.

"And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone;
I will make him an help mate for him..And the Lord God
caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam..
and he took one of his ribs..and the rib,
which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman,
and brought her unto the man"
Gen. 2:18; 21-22

I am created to be a help mate.
I am created to be his help mate.

Since getting married
I have had the best days, 
and the hardest days 
of my entire life.
Really, nothing compares
to the joys and hardships
these last few weeks have brought.
Nothing horrible has happened, 
but just simply the change of sharing 
my life with someone else is hard enough.
I am desperately in love with my husband
and know so strongly that besides my
relationship with Christ he is the best part of my life.
I have been so honored to be his wife, but learning
how to be his wife is a different story.
It's the little things you never think of....
how we fold our clothes
how we do the dishes
(KJ likes the dishes piled on the counter, I like them in the sink)
how we get ready for the day
how we SLEEP
There are so many little things that you have to learn about the person
that when you pile all of those up, it can feel so overwhelming.
Now, NONE of these things really 
matter in the big picture, but in the day to day life..they can seem huge.

I've been trying pray daily on how to be a better wife to my husband.
How can I make his day better?
How can I encourage him? 
How can I respect him? How can I love him.
This is the lesson that 
I must seek from God every single day.
Kj is worth every ounce I have, and I know I will 
never regret fighting for him.

Some days will be hard, but today...
I simply adore him.

Beautifully written! Way to plant your marriage on firm ground. Becoming one isn't something that just happens overnight - it's a continuous process and we have to choose each day to love and honor our spouse. You are SO right - it is definitely worth fighting for. It's not an easy fight, especially in today's world, but it is MORE than worth it!
