Just this morning as my husband was getting ready for Muster he said something to me that has been on mind since: ‘Quit putting yourself down, it is going to piss me off’. It did not say it in any rude manner or in anger, he just said it. I do not think he knows I heard him because I had left the room to get my keys to take out the Recycle container to the curb.
Why would this in mind and why would it considered my “moment of Grace”? This past week he has been so stressed about how he feels like a horrible husband and dearest friend because of the situation that we are in from paperwork with the Navy to unable to know how to meet new people in the community right now. He would constantly say something about how he is a horrible husband or think he has done wrong because I will be cleaning house while he takes a nap or cooking dinner and I would say exactly what he said to me this morning.
It clicked this morning that God was working within us; telling us that we are tied together that we are walking the path together, we are two whom are now one. I should never forget that. We should help each other and maybe the first step is to just say, “Quit downing yourself or you will piss me off”.
The next steps are how we, TOGETHER clear the pathway that God has given us that has been covered by cultural views, stubbornness, and temptation from the Devil. Only working together and knowing our goals which mean walking hand-in-hand or together cutting away the thorns can we achieve this.
Marriage is a forging of two, and I know from what I remember of Blacksmiths, it takes time, patience, skills, and all you have to forge something.
The grace of knowing that brings tears and joy for me.
