so many lessons to learn...

Worker Man and I have been married for about 5 months now and it has taken me this long to begin to realize where part of the difficulty of marriage lies.

I have never been one to be super judgmental. I am loving towards most people and have very few people in my life that I do not get along with or enjoy spending time with. I have tried to remain pretty aware of the verse:

"And why worry about the speck in your friend's eye when you have a log in your own" --Matthew 7:3

I don't want to be judgmental or condemning of a friend because I know that there are so many areas in my life that are far from perfect.

Well, this has not been the case with Worker Man. I have begun to realize that I am so quick to point out things that he struggles with or frustrations that I may have with him. But all the while, those are only "specks" while I have a huge log to deal with. There are so many things that I can do differently as a wife that would make marriage easier and less frustrating but instead, it's easier to point out his small faults.

This is definitely something that I need to work on....


  1. You are already learning what it has taken me years to learn. You will work your entire marriage to *get things right*. But, you already have the most important things in your marriage...Jesus and love. He will bless you as you strive to be a better wife. I think you are on the right track! (I just pray you don't ever get the huge log out of your eye...'cause THEN you can judge me...UGH!)love you DIL!
