Sometimes we pour more energy into 'blessing our husbands', but we miss the mark. He really would like something simple, not our grand plans. We should learn from our past mistakes.
For years, on the Gman's birthday, I would go to Marshalls or T.J. Maxx and pick out a shirt and a tie. Most of the time, he ended up returning it. Wrong size, color or style. Why did it take me so long to figure out that he wanted to pick his own clothes with me? He liked the experience of shopping with me. I guess I am just a slow learner.
Now for newlywed couples, the learning curve is even greater. Meals, clothes, family issues, houses, work schedules, habits and preferences are all things to study. I don't remember having anyone to walk beside me and give me advice. I just jumped into the crash course. My poor guinea pig husband. The trials and errors of our new life together, had it's ups and downs. Thankfully, we had a great church and a pastor who directed us. My pastor gave me a list of books to study. Study I did. Pray I did. I realize that not every couple jumping into marriage these days has such support.
There is a lot of information on the web to encourage newlyweds. I was asked by Propeller to review a website and share it with my readers. In exchange, they offered me a free book: Things I Wish I'd Known Before We Got Married
