Caffeinated Randomness: A Marriage Meme

      8 Comments on Caffeinated Randomness: A Marriage Meme

I just saw a cool Marriage Meme post from Tricia Goyer(It’s Real Life). 

I like answering questions; random and serious (but not too serious).

I haven’t written a marriage post for a little while now and decided its time to start again. 
I’ve been learning to  live out Romans 12:2 and renewing my mind. 
I’ve been focusing more on my man and our growth (which has been phenomenal).

So, to kick things off…

  • How did you meet your husband? Brian and I met our junior year of high school
  • What did you first notice about him? He was (IS) ultra cute and fine!
  • How long have you been married? 16 years
  • Share something you discovered about him after you were married that surprised you? He is very organized
  • What do you argue about the most? Argue? No arguing here. WE DO have intense fellowship sometimes though. Yes, we disagree and have to take a time out to gather our emotions, but we don’t argue.
  • What quality in him do you admire most? He’s a man of the Word of God. With that, all other things fall into place.
  • What is the hardest part about being married? Not being selfish.
  • What’s the best part about being married? Being selfless.
  • What has changed the most about you since you’ve been married? Being more attentive to his likes and dislikes. I feel that I’m studying him more because I want to better love him.
  • What’s the one piece of advice you’d give to other wives about creating a happy marriage? Know that your husband is not your enemy. There is much more that I can advise, but I’ll stick to the plan…
  • What’s the one piece of advice you’d give to your children about creating a happy marriage? Colossians 3:23-24 “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.”

You are more than welcome to copy and paste these questions and let Tricia know that you answered them.

When you’re done, head on over to Andrea’s place, Under Grace and Over Coffee for more Caffeinated Randomness!

    I’m so with you on the not being selfish thing. I’ve been trying to work on that and it has slowly made a difference!

  • I love the studying your husband. It’s something I’ve been trying to do lately. I have found the longer we are married the more I need to study. Similar to my relationship with God and His Word.

  • I love this post! I thought I knew my husband well before we got married. I learn something new about him each time I take the time to really study him 🙂

  • LoL…I love that you have intense fellowship!! That is a great way to put it. Love, love, love that..lol Thanks!!

  • As a single girl I loved this. I love seeing relationships that work…because of the commitment and work of the two people who are married. :o)

    I meant to tell you I used your verse selection for a quotable on my blog….you can find it in the quotable word section.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  • I have to ditto what Critty said, as a single girl I love this too!

    I always try to glean what I can from married couples, because one day I do hope to be one half of a great one!

    Hope you have a great weekend, and I love your blog by the way, this is my first time here.

  • Beautiful, loved this list! Intense fellowship- I love it! We don’t argue or fight, either..it’s selfish.

  • Kela,
    Just stopping by to respond to your comment on Alisa’s post on my blog. You mentioned that you were way too lax in homeschooling last year. Well, I can relate. We’ve always gotten our school work done; but we’ve also had a more “relaxed” approach throughout the school year. Frankly, one of the benefits of homeschooling is that you can be flexible. However, I realized that we needed to be more scheduled. It’s not that I haven’t tried to develop routines and schedules over the years. I certainly have – MANY times – but many times to no avail. We’d stick with it for a time and then that’s all she wrote. This year, I am being intentional about developing that self-discipline required to make a schedule work. I am determined not to give up easily and throw the schedule out the window. Self-discipline is so important for all people. So, that is the character trait we will be working on this year. 🙂

    And just as a side note, today is one of those rough days that I’m trying really hard not to throw in the towel and call it a day. I need to take a breather, check my attitude, re-focus, and get back to it.

    Hope you’re having a wonderful day!
