A busy day, and a valuable lesson

Our day was crazy busy, and in fact, it is still going on.

Lindsey is starting school tomorrow and her preparations have come down to the wire. She’s ready, but exhausted. I have a deadline for a massive work project that can be roughly characterized as, “sometime before dawn.”

Life is nuts, and these days the stress level is high. But, we are learning a valuable lesson. In a close marriage we each have the ability to either relieve stress or aggravate it. On days like this, nerves are exposed and those abilities are more powerful than ever.

Serving and loving each other well needs to always be our primary concern, and in times like this it is more important than ever. It’s also the times when it can be the hardest to actually do, in fact it is impossible. I can’t change my own desires and intentions, only God can. That is what we have to rely on.
