Before we got married, Jason was heavily involved in ministry as the youth pastor. When we got married we both (pretty quickly) were in ministry full time. We've had 2 kids in 6 years and one on the way.
Life does not slow down at the Powers house. Ever.
However, I love our life. I love the ups and downs too because we have learned a lot from them. There is so much involved in our lives that it can be easy for me to see it all jumbled together, but I recently decided I would capture what the Lord has done in our short time.
Lessons I've learned (that I don't want to EVER forget):
*Be on the same side of the table. We aren't enemies, so fight for each other. Not against.
*Choose your battles. This is so true and I have seen it work.
*Plan dates. It just doesn't happen out of then air. I used to think it would...but it doesn't.
*Don't hint. Period.
*Be best friends.
*Make him grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup....cause that's his favorite.
*Know each others Love Languages...
Jason's love languages are Acts of Service and Affirmation. Jason loves it when he comes home to a clean home and loves it even more when I have affirmed his decisions or conversations he has had with people...even our children.
*Be affectionate. A hug & a kiss go a long way everyday.
*Support one another when hard times come.
*Make good financial decisions. There is nothing worse than fighting about money. So be smart.
*Put God first. Always, always, always, always.
I hope I remember all these things. Sometimes I forget even though I've lived them! I love my husband more than anything. He is in so many ways my prince charming. Sometimes I want to kick him, but I can't imagine my life without him. I am so thankful for a husband who really loves me, but loves God more.
