My prayer is that it helps women and men see themselves in their marriages for the people they are.
So many times I have been the one who screams.
All the while he is the calm one:
the one who keeps the peace.
In all my ranting and continuous raving,
it has been his prayers have kept this marriage afloat.
Not just because of his love for me,
but because of his undying love for Christ.
He is strives to be the best husband he knows how to be.
To ask for more…
I may as well slap his face.
In life you have to determine “to do”.
It is not just something that occurs.
I have walked this road for far too long,
When the mirror that stared,
Created a reflection that resembled
a woman who looked like me.
A reminder that I can only change myself
So with each new day with which I am blessed
I will open my eyes and praise His Holy Name
And as I turn over and see his face
I will praise God still
For I have been blessed beyond measure
Each day I will remind myself
That misery loves company,
And I must seek the joy that lives within
So that the misery that waits for me
Can knock on someone else's door.
I have moved on
Now I have the victory.
