I'm the most blessed person in the entire freakin' world.

I love my husband and he deserves praise, adoration and respect for who he is and what he does.

Tonight after I worked, I came home to a dark lit room with candles, classical music in the background, and one of my favorite dinners ready and waiting for me. The house was spotless also. My husband had taken special care that I would love to come home to a clean house and some food. He also wasn't dressed down, but dressed in a nice shirt and done up for moi!

I hope every woman may find as wonderful a man of God as I did. He is amazing.

It has been awhile since I've posted in this community!! How is everyone doing?? I am ok-my husband and I are in some financial instability right now. I posted about it in my personal journal, so I'll just kind of touch base in this journal. I think the biggest thing we need right now is to trust God and just rely on Him to take care of us. I know he will, but sometimes that's just really hard to do. My husband and I have had arguments about our financial situation, and we end up just getting mad at each other. Any advice or ideas from anyone??? We have tried doing a budget (that didn't work-and I don't even know what happened!) and we have read one of Dave Ramsey's financial books. I don't want to ask anyone for money, because that will just be more debt for us. I think the money thing is coming between my husband and I-it just gets tense around here sometimes. Anyway, I just needed to get this out of my system. If anyone has any suggestions they are welcome!!

Due to recent problems in our marriage, my husband and I have decided that we really need to work on spending more time together - not just "we're-living-together" time - but proper quality time, just like we did when we were dating.

However, we seem to have gotten stuck in a rut, so I need ideas!
Ideas of (inexpensive) things to do on date-nights.
Ideas of how to fall in love with my DH all over again.
Ideas of how I can make my DH fall in love with me all over again.

We love each other dearly, but in the stress of everyday life, the magic tends to slip away.
What do you do to rekindle the romance in your relationship?

What do you think of marriage counseling? I have been feeling that I should really be going to counseling, but I don't know how to bring it up to my husband. He thinks everything is going great, and I'm just not feeling the same way. I love my husband, but I feel like I really need help. I also wanted to ask, and I really hope that no one thinks I'm a bad person for thinking this...has anyone ever thought about what life would be like if you hadn't married your significant other? That maybe there was someone else for you and you ended up marrying the wrong person? I know, this brings me right back to the point that I probably need counseling. I just really need to get this off my chest, and every time I try to talk to my husband he just assures me that everything is good and that nothing needs to change. Is it just me or what? I guess you would need to know the whole story behind our dating and marriage, which I think I posted in an earlier post. (if not I will get around to doing that) Any advice would be appreciated-thanks!

Wow, so today is our 3rd wedding anniversary. (and my userinfo page looks so cute where my anniversary ticker tells me today is our anniversary!) It's so mind boggling how fast the time goes. I have a few friends who will hit the 5 year mark this June--and I was at those weddings!

One of the things I love the most about the messianic Jewish holidays as well as having a wedding anniversary is that part of what we do is have the day set aside as a time to remember, so even though the day was completly a blur, these things I do remember:

*Waking up at 7am after a very late night finishing our CD party favors with cmarie14 & Brian and georange & Jamin.

*Being so nervous that I couldn't eat and my Dad, who picked me up from my apartment, was so concerned that he bought me a ton of water and later put together a bunch of food selections.

*Randomly finding a hair appointment with my mom that morning (since I kinda forgot) with a lady who did an amazing job, especially getting the flowers into my hair.

*Knowing that the Lubbers opened their home up to two of my friends they had never met, jedibri & larkssong

*Seeing all my girls, cmarie14,sarah0737,snoopygirl653,musicsmurf, & thatkaringirl all downstairs when I arrived. That was nice and helped me to relax

*Having a time of prayer with Pastor Tom and the girls beforehand

*My Dad looking like he was going to cry as we got ready to enter the santuary and as he and my mom would give me away

*Dear finndarkrider's hand clutching mine so hard as his Dad spoke a very amazing and touching message

*The bouquet being heavy

*Actually being able to recite the vows right, since I kept screwing them up at the rehearsal

*Not drinking very much of the wine before the glass crushing since I had not really eaten (I guess the Pastor drank the rest of what we couldn't finish)

*Really enjoying getting to hug all the guests and Phil's flower getting so crushed from the hugs

*Doing all the photos afterward and having my feet hurt and my face hurt

*Trying to go to the bathroom required the help of my sister-in-law Annette

*Leaving the church to find my Dad suprised me by renting a Bentley to take us to the reception

*Having random people at the Chart House congratluate us on our way in

*Loving the food since I was famished

*Enjoying the one bite of wedding cake and wanting more since it was SO good

*My brothers Tom and Tim (esp Tim) taking many many pictures of themselves on the disposable camera. I wanted to beat them ;)

*Dancing with Phil and loving the band

*Dancing with my brother Tony and with my Dad

*Being really tired. It was a long day!

*Waking up feeling different and to face quite an interest journey to get to our honeymoon, but that's another story. ;)

Blessings in Christ!

Our 3rd wedding anniversary is in mere days and we're poor.

And good ideas for cheap dates, gifts, etc?

My husband just lost his job today. I would really appreciate it if you would pray that God provides him with a new one soon, that's better then his old job. Thanks! :-)
