My Number Two

Unless the Lord builds the house,
    the builders labor in vain.

Psalms 127:1

The divorce rates are between 40% and 50% in America today. Why do almost half of all marriages end in divorce? It’s very simple.

God designed a priorities list for married couples. It consist of putting God first, your spouse second, your children third, work fourth and so on. When we change the order in any way, we will encounter problems.

Having four kids all under the ages of 7 can really challenge the priorities list for me as the Mama. To be honest, I have to make a conscious effort to remember that my husband should be my number two and not all my little ones.

Friday, my number two made reservations at Disney’s Flying Fish Cafe. Since I’m still nursing we brought our little guy with us. I said a prayer before we went inside that he would be good and would take a nice restful nap. God answered that prayer and he did not wake the entire time we were at the restaurant! We feasted on Crispy Maine Coast Jonah Crab Cakes, Lobster Bisque, Red Snapper, New York Strip Steak, and an amazing dessert! Oh the dessert, don’t even get me started…okay, now that I mentioned it, I have to tell you about the dessert.  We delighted in Caramelized Banana Napoleon, Beurre Noisette Milk Chocolate Mousse, and Creme Brulee.  The food needless to say, was amazing, but the company of my number two was even better!

Take time to schedule date nights!  Make sure to put the kids to bed early so you can enjoy time together as a couple without interruptions.  It’s very important to build your life upon number one, but it is also important to know who that number one put as number two!

If we choose to ignore God’s design, we might wake up one day with a cold bed.
