The first two Beatitudes in this series were general concepts meant for any marriage, regardless of religion. This next one is slightly different. This Beatitude shows the foundation our marriages should be built on.

Blessed are they who thank God for their food and who set aside some time each day to read the Bible and [...]

This weekend, Jason & I took a nice long walk/jog along the road that leads from our island (Ocean City) to the next island (containing the towns of Strathmere & Sea Isle).  Jason works in Strathmere in the summertime and wanted to check out the beach situation, since storms tend to wash part of it [...]

“Men and women belong to different species and communications between them is still in its infancy.” ~ Bill Cosby

Ahh, communication….  have you noticed how hard it can be?  Most fights (at least in my marriage) start due to a lack of communication.  Or, to be more accurate, a lack of UNDERSTANDABLE communication.
What do I mean [...]

In case you haven’t noticed, it’s been a little while since my last post.  Main reason:  I’ve been in California (internet-less) since Thursday!!

I was at an internet marketing event, the first ever Christian internet marketing seminar called Illuminate Conference.  My husband was one of the speakers, and I was looking forward to learning and hearing [...]

I’ve lucked out with the last two “Gracious Wife” posts…. I’ve been able to write them with minimal conviction, because I tend to not be too sarcastic or nagging toward my husband. This post, however, I’ve been dreading, mainly because it hits home for me… I don’t want to write it, because it’s [...]

When I think of a nag, I think of someone who is old, wrinkly, and extremely ugly.  Why? Because that’s what a hag looks like (in my mind), and since the words rhyme and both describe a person (usually a female), I automatically link them together.  Maybe I’m the only person in the world who [...]

I don’t know about you, but I HATE sarcasm.
Okay, okay, I know that there are times when it is funny, and even somewhat appropriate (like when my husband hikes his pants all the way up to his chest and runs around the house like that, and I say, “Oooh, that’s sexy!” …definite sarcasm there).  Most [...]

So, it’s been a while since my last “real” post, as I’m trying to juggle my new fall schedule.  I started back at school, where I’m an aide in a special ed class.  It’s not hard work, but I don’t really get much of a break, especially for blogging.  Hopefully I’ll get into a good [...]
