WHY WOULD WE EVER WANT IT TO BE THE WAY IT WAS BEFORE?!? - The Perfectly Imperfect Mama

WHY WOULD WE EVER WANT IT TO BE THE WAY IT WAS BEFORE?!?

by - Friday, September 27, 2019

People have asked me & Dan before how after such struggle in our marriage, we went back to the way it was before. And the truth is, our marriage is not like it was before ...

IT .. IS .. SO .. MUCH .. BETTER!

It took hard work & A LOT of it to get where we are today.

Is it perfect?? NO WAY!

Do we ever expect it to be?? Nope. 

Do we wish what happened didn’t?? Absolutely. 

But, we both know it did.

And we both know it is part of our story.

I mean, a dang messy, loooooong chapter, but our story nonetheless.

So no, things aren’t as they used to be. Why in the world would we ever want them to be if “the things before” led to pain & heartache??

AM I RIGHT!?!

For the past nine months, I have watched incredible healing take place in my sweet hubby’s life. I have had a front row seat watching & when I say it’s been incredible, I mean it. There was a time when I wasn’t sure his heart would ever be mended.

BUT God.

The Ultimate Healer.

He knew it was far beyond any man’s power to heal a broken heart.

Oh, Dan. 

Dan, Dan, Dan. The Lord continues to work in your life, our marriage & our family.

I see it.

I feel it.

I see it by the way you make time to be in God’s word.

I feel it by the way you love me.

I see it by the way you lead our family. 

I see it when Cooper, Millie Jo & Ellie Joy’s eyes light up when they see you walk through the door after work.

I see it by the way you go to work every single day & come home excited to see what God has in store with His ministry the next day.

I see it in the way you serve.

He has such big plans for you & the man of God you are.

You will be the first to tell anyone that healing doesn’t happen over night ... heck, it may take 3+ years ... but you never stopped being willing to let God do what only He can do.

To see your heart go from “black” as you would often say, to the joy that has been brought back into it, makes me literally tear up just typing it.

So no, our marriage is not what it used to be, it is better.

And while it is not what it used to be, YOU are your happy self again. The same ol Dan I met & fell in love with almost 16 years ago.

You are living proof that when you let the Healer do the healing, broken pieces will be mended & He will make things far greater than you could have ever imagined.

You babe, are amazing.
