Dave and Amie
The lodge had a huge lobby with big, comfy couches and fireplaces. It was fun just to relax between sessions.
I really wanted to go just for fun. I feel like we have a great marriage. I believe we had close-to-perfect examples all our lives, so we already had a lot of the "kinks" knocked out before we even got married. I kind of thought I didn't need to learn anything. Pretty dumb, huh?
I learned once again, how important we are to each other. I learned, as a wife, I really can make or break my husband. He can follow the Lord and be a "great" man of God even without my cooperation, but it's not as likely. He needs me. I am his greatest critic, greatest encourager, greatest supporter... it just depends on which role I choose to use. I was greatly challenged!
I love my husband so much. I know how hard it must be to be married to me! I thank God for him. He completes me. He loves me. He is patient with me.
It was such a good retreat, just to re-focus, and remember the importance of marriage!
