4th of July weekend & Birthday BBQ!

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

I don’t know about all of you, but I had a blast this Fourth of July weekend!! It was definitely something needed for both the Hubby and I. Amen! Thank you JESUS! It was just amazing letting go and enjoying God’s beauty at VA beach!

This Saturday we are at 30 weeks! Yes, the big 3-0. I know it may seem redundant because each week I discuss something many may already know, that we’re pregnant! Haha but I have fun writing about it, it’s almost like this blog is my journal.

It has been a blast but although the weekend is over, we truly came back with a peace, and noticed how God has truly transformed us through these short years of marriage.

You know, problems are going to come and go. Especially in relationships. But I believe communication is most definitely key. God communicates to us through His WORD, we also are able to communicate with God through prayer and faith.

How great are your works, LORD, how profound your thoughts! Psalm 92:5

I believe, we shouldn’t sweep things under the rug or let small problems grow into a large elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about. We need to confront issues and situations because, truly you will do more good than harm.

Problems, ill feelings, etc. can fester and mold.

Somethings need abrading,  just like when a doctor abrades a wound.

When we confront the issues it’s a chance for us to grow and move forward. Sure it’s going to hurt, you may get offended things may even escalate and tension may grow. But if you remember to just remain calm, speak on how you feel without belittling anyone including yourself, you’ll find it makes it a lot easier to speak and for someone to actually listen. If for some reason, while discussing an “issue” and the one you’re speaking to loses a bit of self control, such as raising their voice, just remind them “I’m not trying to hurt you, I’m not trying to do any negative thing here.” And explain why you feel as though the “issue” needs to be addressed. Approach these moments with the utmost gentleness and kindness that you can muster up. 🙂

They saw the works of the LORD, his wonderful deeds in the deep. Psalm 107:24

Sometimes a relationship can also be compared to the ocean. There are different scriptures that actually touch on this such as in Psalms 107:23-31. I guess a relationship can also be compared to sailing in uncharted waters! Ohhh, what an Adventure!

Just as its hard to run in the sand so it’s hard to get through someone without weighing your responsibility in the issue.

Stone is heavy and sand a burden, but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both. Proverbs 27:3

Choose your battles.

Not only did we have a great time at the Playa, you know the beach. We also were invited to join a celebration of my Husband’s Brother turning 30!  The Big 3-0 ! Good times, Good times…
