The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

DH and I got in one of those rather shall I say, interesting, fights yesterday. You know the fights in which when you finish fighting, talk it through, etc., you really don't know why you got as mad as you got. Or exactly why you even got in the fight in the first place. Well I technically do know why: it's because I am a stubborn, selfish woman with a little less stubborn and non-selfish man.

It got me thinking about life; about marriage. How we show honor to God through our relationships with each other. We were very young when we got married; him 20, me, 19. I sometimes look back and wonder how we EVER survived that first year! After all we were young, selfish, and both extremely stubborn (but me more so). Yet, we were also so in love. I think when we got married we thought that love would carry us through anything. In a way, it has, but ultimately it is God who has carried us through. He has had to work on my heart over and over again in my marriage but He is finally getting through to this stubborn girl.

So last night, there we were 6 1/2 years of marriage later and I was snuggled into my handsome hubby's arms asking him for his forgiveness. Letting him know how very wrong I was. He forgave me, as I knew He would, and then said to me:  "I'll love you forever; in the good, the bad, and the ugly.". And I thought to myself, I will too dear, I just hope to have a lot more good in me than bad or ugly. That is my prayer this year: to have more good in me, to be a blessing to my husband in marriage, to encourage and uplift him. Because he deserves it and because I love him.


  1. You're a great wife, then. I tend to hold a grudge. Not the ideal thing to do...I don't recommend it. :)

  2. Haha! :) Actually Crystal, the majority of time I tend to hold a grudge. Unfortunately. God is definitely still working on my heart there.
