Nine months!

It has been nine months since we have gotten married! The time has just flown by. We did not do much to commemorate it, other than our usual dinner time Bible study. I have been busy filling out applications and he has been busy working at building some furniture for his family and drafting our future house. Luckily, reading the Bible after dinner was suggested to us during our premarital counseling. It has been so wonderful for us. It is something that we can consistently do almost everyday (at least that is the goal). We currently use a couple's devotional Bible that has devotions all through it. We have found that the questions they ask help us to stay focused on keeping our marriage strong. It is so easy even after just nine months to slip into bad habits of only finding fault with each other. When I go back to the Word though, it always helps me see things more clearly.
Matthew 7:3-5 keeps it in perspective:

3"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye."

If you are looking for ways to bless your dh, go here for some inspiration. I know I was inspired! What do you do to show your dh you care?
