I know this wont apply to all of you at this moment but it will. I have had it on my heart to share for awhile. Some times as moms we get so wrapped up in raising our children we put our children #1.
Well stop your #1 priority need to be the Lord And #2 your marriage then your children. Our children will only be in our care about 18-19 yrs. But we vowed to love charish and honor our husbands till death do us part. And if you think that you can put that on hold until the children are raised you are very saddly mistaken.
You need to build on that relationship daily so that you know who that person is sleeping next to you after the children are gone. I have had so many friends that neglected thier marriage while raising children because they think that thier main focus should be thier children and now they are divorcing because they don't know each other or they have seperate lives and I just don't think thats what the Lord wanted for us. Let your husband know daily that he is important to you, let him know that you appriciate him. Don't take it for grantit that he knows... And what a beautiful way for your children to learn how to have a marriage... set the example for them they learn so much more by watching thier parents so please Cherish that man...May the Lord bless everyone of your marriages...
