Love is a daily journey - not a weekend trip.
this week a sweet friend sent me a link to Gary Thomas’s blog. Author Tyler
Ward was actually a guest blogger and wrote the post I read entitled, Love is a Journey Not a Free-Fall.
just say the timing was Providential.
husband & I took a short weekend trip to Chicago this past weekend. My oh
my it was a great trip! We’re both avid sports fans, so our main purpose in
going was to see the Chicago Cubs (My husband’s team) hosts the Atlanta Braves
(my team of choice). I have never been to Wrigley. Since Wrigley is
celebrating their 100th birthday, I just had a birthday, AND our
teams were playing, we thought there was no better time for us to go!
Ya'll, seeing a game in Wrigley has been on my
bucket list a LONG time. How fun to cross something off the list!! Now I have
to find something new for that line on the list!
this great weekend trip, and it was followed by a fairly bleak beginning to our
week. Now, our problems and adjustments are minuscule at best, but let me tell

heart was heavy. We had this great weekend trip, but then we returned and were
back in this ‘everyday life’ routine. I was swinging between being infuriated
and being so hurt. I know there is a unique special-ness in a trip...
I also know there can be great comfort
and a different type of charm in the everyday.
praying to enjoy the everyday more! Even though I am always looking for new ways
to bring a little sparkle and excitement to the ‘ho-hum’ routine, I remind
myself that love is an everyday journey – not a weekend trip.
been pondering how Scripture often talks about the Tree of Life and how a tree
represents longevity in the Bible. I want our new marriage to grow like that
which means enjoying my husband’s desire for routine.
