On Marriage

May 21, 2015

After one’s relationship with God, the marriage is the second most important relationship there is (if you’re married, of course).  That being said, Matthew and I like to make a point of making sure we are always maintaining and thriving as a couple.  Date nights just don’t happen very often, but we do our best to do what works for us: hanging out after the kids are in bed, talking throughout the day about life, and communicating about everything.

But, sometimes, a date weekend is absolutely necessary.  We haven’t been out (overnight) without the kids since just after getting back from Congo the first time, over two years ago.  When we arrived here in France last August, we began researching different options for affordable and do-able travels.  We discovered something we really wanted to do, secured a sitter, and have been waiting (not-so-) patiently for this coming weekend.

This is the perfect timing for some time away – we are almost finished with school and about to jump into the chaos of moving (again!) to a new place and getting settled.  Matthew will begin working outside the home for the first time in over two years.  I will be running a whole house and juggling an almost normal life, except for living in Congo – ha!  We are very excited for these changes, but also, this little break will be a lovely pause to prepare.

Please pray for us this weekend, that we will really get the quality time we are hoping for and that we will have fun and not miss the kids too much.  Pray for the kids, too, and Nancy, their wonderful nanny for the weekend.  Mostly, pray for Nancy, actually.  Ha ha!

Where are we going and what are we doing?  Well, I hope we have good stories to tell after we get back…
