A Whole Day Off... Can it be?

So today has been one of the greatest blessings.... JEREMIAH AND I BOTH HAD THE WHOLE DAY OFF! I know... it's crazy. Since we got back from our honeymoon I have had straight work and school everyday and the ministry all weekend. Mondays/Wednesdays I had summer school from 7-noon, work from 12:30-5:30 and night class from 6-10pm and it was BRUTAL... and today we both ironically had the day off. It was great! Yesterday we had church ALL day and then a leader meeting last night and on those days, although they are an amazing encouragement, we end our weekend entirely exhausted.

So today we slept in until we felt like getting up, we watched some TV, layed around, made an actual lunch (ha no quick made PB&J on the way out)... we went to walmart and got a free movie rental (if you sign up at RedBox you get free rental codes no Monday/Wednesdays... and watched movies. We got I Am Legend (jeremiah hates scary movies but because it was in the daytime it was ok haha)... and then we watched our reality night shows (high school musical and the mole!) and then... we played Disney's Scene it!

We love playing games and it's always a fun competition... just grows our friendship which we see as a needed part to our marriage. We laugh so much when we are together and we are just enjoying our new life together. Things get hard being in the "real world"... mainly money because we are working hard on our small salaries to pay all bills and get everything taken care of.

God is good and He is and will provide if we are faithful to Him. I am the worrier in the relationship and doubt a lot that our needs will be taken care of. Jeremiah constantly reminds me that we will be ok... we might not always be filled with extra money but we will be taken care of. He is such a good man and I am more than blessed to be married to such a godly man. We are growing together, learning from the other godly couples around us and working everyday to make our marriage more pleasing to God.

Today was a blessing from God to remind us that no matter how hard we have to work each week, so matter how crazy of a week we might have, to never take for granted just a day at home together. :) tomorrow starts a normal week for us though... so time for bed! :)

Remember to make time to be together, after your relationship with Lord, it is THE most important thing.
