Are any of you like me? You take on too much, try to be too much to everyone, and pack your schedule so full you aren’t sure you’ll be able to fulfill all your obligations?
Well, I’m doing it again but this time for good reason.
My dear friend Kayse over at KaysePratt.com is running a special four week series about marriage. It’s streamlined with specific topics and although it is only four weeks, it will be a power-packed four weeks.
She asked if I’d be interested. My initial reaction was yes, yes, yes. Then I started to wonder if I’d be taking on too much. I already write a marriage post or read and highlight marriage posts every single Monday. This would make two similar pieces of writing due on the same day each week.
I was all prepared to say that I’d have to decline. But that isn’t what He had in mind. I’m sitting here now at the eleventh hour writing my welcome post about the series.
I feel very strongly about marriage. I’ve seen my fair share of marriages end. I don’t want to end up a statistic. My husband and I work hard at our marriage. We’ve not had any catastrophe fights, times of separation, or thoughts of divorce. We have, however, had our ups and downs just like many of you probably have.
I couldn’t write the words in an email to Kayse that I wouldn’t be part of this. Then I took a few minutes to write. In about 15 minutes, I basically had half of the posts already outlined.
I took it as confirmation that I’m meant to be part of this no matter how hard it might be to make happen.
We will be discussing four separate topics in February. They are:
- Communication ( Feb 4th )
- Service ( Feb 11th )
- Laughter ( Feb 18th )
- Sex ( Feb 25th )
So, won’t you stop back here next Monday and learn a little about me and some of my friends? In the mean time, if there is anything you’d specifically need discussed based on these topics, please feel free to email me!
