Time...



I would love to say that I am appreciative of time and treasure it...but I am just as guilty as the next person.  
Doug and I might have an odd lifestyle to some, but God has been gracious and I think we manage pretty well.  I sure hope so anyhow....it's been a little over 5 years since he started with Dairy One!  In that time, I really realize just how precious time really is.  Of course we still fall in our ruts and I don't treasure it like I should.  Wednesday morning, Doug got up to get ready for work and I got up and packed his bags to leave.  We both got done early and sat down on the couch to read our Bible's together.  We typically don't have time to do that, but we did that morning.  It was so nice to have that time together, all curled up, without any distractions.  I've decided we need to take more time like this.  We really try to separate ourselves on the weekend and spend every second we can together, but Doug and I need time together too, other thank just going to bed.  
So there is my new goal!  
Take the time to spend together, even if it means getting up a half hour early! :)

Exactly!!! Brent and I started putting the kids to bed earlier because of the same reason. Marraiges need time too to continue the growth And deep fellowship not just the intimacy.

We also made eva start sleeping in her own bedroom area so that we weren't all three sharing our queen bed anymore. Much to her dismay.
