particularly in this season, our daily battle to believe and know that truth always conquers is a deeper and longer battle than usual. and so i'm trying to teach myself and pray for ways to fight for joy and mental clarity and hope. below is my list so far - of which all are underlined and supported by and kept in by grace.
marriage gratitude journal - a little journal, sent to me by a sweet blog reader, devoted solely to capturing the gratefulnesses i have in ian and him as my husband
exercise - to clear and empty my brain and keep me healthy to serve ian
date nights - wednesdays are reserved. and in a few weeks, after our first deadline, we're taking a week to devote solely to dates. no writing.
prayer - growing in my commitment. fasting on wednesdays. spending time thinking about and praying for something/someone other than myself
sleep - a time to escape
thank you for praying for our writing and our marriage.
