Well. Completing each other. I admit that I still have a lot of work to do on that. In the past, we have worked together for most everything; when I was shopping for my first bike, he helped me find one that was perfect. And when he wanted to get a new bike, we went together. We talked about making decisions, finances, and just how things would go. We haven't been like that for a while though.
So tonight I tried to talk, but he just told me about his day, then it was time to sit down for dinner, then he became a couch potato. And I stopped trying to talk.
I started reading thessalonians. Today's reading: We are not trying to please men but God, who tests our hearts. That makes it all worthwhile.
This will come. Be patient. Focus on how to get more private time. When he becomes a couch potato then sit with him and during a commercial talk about the show....
That would work if he didn't always fall asleep within five minutes of being on the couch.
I'll practice patience and wait for a good opportunity. I have tomorrow off. I've even thought of putting my thoughts in a letter and leaving it for him to read but it would be better if he heard it directly from me. There is a lot we need to talk about and I have been avoiding it. I realize now that it isn't doing us any good if I keep trying to hide. I knew it before, but haven't had enough courage to face it. I feel like I have God with me and that makes me strong; I can do this.
Thats it. Trust Christ. And do what you are lead to do....
