That’s Why God is Good

Marriage is hard.  God is good. This year, Racer and I celebrated 10 years of marriage and hard work. It’s been a lot of hard work. We both brought luggage into our relationship. His parents divorced when he was young. I had been married and divorced. He had expectations. I had expectation. Our premarital counseling wasContinue reading “That’s Why God is Good”

2015 Goals – Mid-year reveiw

At the beginning of this year, I set some goals for myself. I thought about them and talked them over with Racer. Some seem silly, some are more important.

I have no illusions thatContinue reading “The Old Married Couple”

Those are two words that often start a fight. Most marriage fights are over money. I’ve experienced that kind of fight plenty of times. I used to be a spender. Big time spender. Even when I was a kid. My mom and dad like to tell a funny story about when I went shopping forContinue reading “Marriage and Money”
