Ice Breaker

Hello!

It is my first attempt at blogging. I'm excited, apprehensive, afraid and a bundle of nerves. I have a lot to say and things I want to share with the world. Maybe this will make me the writer I have always wanted to become.

I welcome feedback and constructive criticism. If you do not have anything positive to say, please refrain from staying here.

There will be a variety of topics, so hold on to your seats. I look forward to sharing with you and I hope I add something to your lives.

Guess it's time to share with my husband!

Today's topic is humor. God certainly has a sense of humor, I think, when he created marriage. I look at how marriages struggle today. I wonder if it is only in the US where we have such a high divorce rate. Why does mariage have to be so hard at times? Why can't men and women just naturally understand each other instead of having to learn the other's language and communication style? How many self help books are available for sale at this very moment on this very topic? Too many in my opinion. I'm all for improving yourself and your marriage and a lot of these books are great. Even someone that is seasoned in marriage can always learn something new.

I think Gary Chapman explained it best: marriage was created to prepare you to serve others and who better than to start with your spouse? It is an eye opening experience when you realize you have it all wrong and you have to change, evolve and grow which is something most people do not like to do. I like growth, but not painful growth.

Thoughts anyone?
