99 day challenge

Power of a praying wife...

3:09:00 PM

OK I am stepping into new territory and figuring there may be a few of you that might want to join me?! My husband is my peanut butter to my jelly, the soda to my pop, the blue in my sky. He is everything to me! Although we will have our normal days where we give a quick kiss in passing as he is arriving home and I am leaving with 2 of our 3 children for whatever that week may hold. I pray for him regularly but other than meal time we have never ever shared that "intimate" prayer time of taking a few minutes JUST the two of us to pray together. This is a challenge that brings butterflies to my stomach and makes me nervous! It is a challenge that we are going to start! I am going to start a prayer journal and keep track of our prayers and how I felt during that time! I am interested to see how it can affect and change our marriage which is already good to something even better!


(I came across these OLD pictures of Paul and I! We need to have some new ones of just US taken! This was when Noah was not even a year old!)



I found this pin on Pinterest the other day and it was an article of 99 ways to tell your Husband you are thankful for him. What I decided to do with this list is each day I am sending my husband a text or writing one on a post it note that I stick in his lunch (he makes a lunch every night before work).
