有五种方法可以让婚姻更繁荣。

After celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary last week,I was thinking what I would like to share about marriage.明确地,how to have a thriving marriage.

我个人知道很多婚姻中,丈夫和妻子作为室友比情侣生活得更多。It makes me sad!Because I know from experience that marriage can be such a wonderful experience.

你可能认为你婚姻不顺的原因,是因为你嫁给了谁。Maybe.In some instances,那是真的。But many marriages that I see fail,it is not because one partner is irrevocably damaged goods or completely wrong.Usually,it is because both partners have issues.因为我们内心都是罪恶的。

Let me note here – very clearly – that I am not talking of abuse.Obviously,if there is an abusive partner,then you need to leave and get help.

How to have a thriving marriage

婚姻兴旺的五种方式

(1)身体接触。亲情是自由的!应该有很多拥抱,kisses,亲密关系,and just loving touches.Especially for your husband,女士!They love touching and being touched.不要耸耸肩。Don't stiffen and refuse hugs.即使当你有点生气的时候——融化在他的怀里,你可能会惊讶它让你感觉好多了!!

I know,有时候我们有点想生他的气!我们想让他知道我们有多沮丧。Or maybe we are giving him the silent treatment and let him know by our stiffness,我们是多么的与众不同。

Ok,回去再读最后一段。真的吗?!Is that a Christ-like way to act?不。If that is why we are refusing cuddles and lovin',那我们最好检查一下我们的心脏!(你刚才用约翰·克里斯特的声音读过吗?!!哈哈!!不管怎样,避免身体接触是必然的,,fastway to start breaking down closeness in the marriage.

(2) Date night.坚持!I know – this advice used to bug me too until I realized that ‘date night' doesn't have to mean leaving the house or the kids.We haven't always had extra money for eating out.That's ok!You can have dates wherever you are,不管你有什么。

The main purpose is to spend time together,preferably in a situation where you can talk.这些年来,我们有:
–晚上散步,,
– put the kids to bed early and set up a special dinner for the two of us (I decorated while he was at work),,
– ride with him when he checks mineral,water,or feeds hay (can take the little ones along!),
– played board games and more.

当我们有一些额外的钱时,我们喜欢:
–去便利店买可乐和巧克力吧,在往返途中,of course.
– Go out to eat.
– Go see a movie.
– Ride to town together when he has an errand.

I will say (and my man agrees wholeheartedly) that it is very important to spend time together away from the kids,occasionally.We were married before we were parents,and we will be a couple long after the kids leave.

如果你负担不起每年的汽车旅馆住宿,then drop off the kids with grandma or a friend,一天晚上一个人呆在家里。(absolutely NO cleaning,either!!) Trust me,the kids will be ok.Even the most clingy,momma-babies.Once they are weaned,把它们扔下来!!回家,买比萨饼,break out a funny movie,早点睡觉-尽情享受吧!!

I know some you will say:"“oh,但是我们作为一个家庭做每件事!“Well ok.但问题是:你的孩子不会一直和你在一起。When they leave – will you even know your partner?因为相信我,孩子们在身边的时候,你不会得到同样的一对一。

与你的配偶有某种联系——只和你们两个一起回忆——这会建立起一段婚姻。If you don't believe me,go ask several couples whose marriages are solid,and who have been married over 15 years.See what they say.😉

How to have a thriving marriage

(3) Communication is vital.I purposely didn't put this first,因为我们都厌倦了听到communication is key!或者那只是我。😀 Haha!Anyways,it IS true,不过。We have to be able to talk about everything.

  • No lying or hiding financial things.Be open and give grace.
  • 提醒彼此你对彼此的爱。是的,我们知道——不管怎么说,and often!!
  • Don't allow little gripes to stick between you.它们会溃烂生长,直到你无法轻易修复。

I know that in a marriage,eventually,会有大事发生的。Something that leans on the very door of your soul.Something that the two of you cannot see the same way.无论是宗教差异,a matter of integrity,一些道德困境,parenting ideology – whatever.At some point,you will likely face a big hurdle.答案不只是温和地接受对方的观点。That just starts a bitterness in your soul that will consume you one day.I believe there's a better way to deal with it.

  • Pray about it.祈祷上帝的意志能被双方清楚地看到。Pray for wisdom.为团结祈祷。
  • Ask other trusted,敬虔的朋友寻求建议。Sometimes we are so close to the issue that we just can't see the situation clearly.Be ready to hear that your spouse may be the one in the right!!
  • 说说吧。Be clear.甚至告诉他们你的感受。But stay calm.Screaming and yelling is never acceptable.“你从不……“and"You always…!“不好。Don't attack their character when you are upset about a specific issue.继续谈论话题。告诉他们你真的很想从他们的角度去理解和看待,and that you'd really like if they try to see it from yours.

How to have a thriving marriage

(4) Go to bed together.我曾经认为这对我们的婚姻很重要。但我听过这么多夫妇提起这件事——我认为这一定是一个普遍的问题。But here's the thing;there are two ends of every night.有晚上和早上。If your spouse wants to go to bed together,just switch your evening activities to the morning.

I know,早上5点起床浏览Pinterest或看你的节目或打扫你的房子都没那么有趣。After 18 years of marriage,I can tell you that a loving,close relationship with your husband is far more valuable than a clean house or any personal goals.Trust me on this.

A couple things you can do:

  • 重新安排你的一天,让你的清洁工作在睡觉前完成。Yes,it's possible,but you may have to stop checking your phone so much and get the kids involved.
  • 放弃一个节目或DVR,白天看。(seriously?你想在电视节目上大发雷霆吗?!!)
  • Get up earlier than you normally do,and do your things then.早晨是美好的,quiet time for moms!Learn to love them.

Again,this is an issue of building the bonds between the two of you.现在,it seems small.But over 10,15,20年,these tiny habits build up into thick walls.你得决定它们是你之间的墙还是你婚姻周围的保护墙。

You get to decide if they are walls between you,or walls of protection around your marriage.点击鸣叫

(5) Eat breakfast together.Most wives that I know who不要eat breakfast with their man,说他们的丈夫不在乎,or doesn't like to eat breakfast.但奇怪的是,many husbands who hear that I cook breakfast for my husband every day,评论他们会如何享受。

I have an idea… how about you ask him if he would enjoy it if you would get up and eat breakfast with him?If he likes to cook breakfast – lucky you!You can just eat cereal.如果你不吃早餐——不用担心,和他坐在一起。You don't have to talk.你甚至可以打电话,(喘气!!)只要你们都能接受。

But I'm telling you,it's another one of those little things that bind heart and soul together.And yes,youcan改变你的习惯。🙂

Be sure to hug and kiss and say"I love you"before he leaves for work.If you do this every day for 20 years,you will have said"I love you"7,比你睡觉的时候多300倍。You will have shared 7,300 cups of coffee,and smiled at each other 7,300次,than those who don't start the day together.You will share 7,再亲吻和拥抱300次!I'd say that is totally worth it.

No,it's not a big deal.But what if,in the long term,it is?如果不是大问题怎么办?but the tiny,everyday things,that create strong,lasting,爱的婚姻?One small act of love at a time,over many thousands of days,add up to a sturdy house of marriage that keeps you warm and cared for.Stop up those little cracks that let in cold air.Work on your marriage every day.Never let it grow boring or stagnant.

How to have a thriving marriage

Nothing is wasted,no act of love unnecessary.It seems fruitless now,but keep after it.年复一年,you will see the wonderful return on investment that you made.

These are some things that I believe have helped Cliff and I to enjoy a close,loving marriage.我们遇到了困难,for sure,但上帝总是带领我们度过难关。

Recently,我说:I'm sorry you had to put up with me through all these hard things."And Cliff responded:"I haven't put up with you.我们经历过一些艰难的事情,但我们一起经历过。”“

That is why it is worth it.To go through everything – together.

How I became a happy Christian.

Have you ever wondered why some people are consistently happy and cheerful,其他人不是吗?Why you seem to be bogged down with trials,悲伤和疾病——但是你那边的朋友却像云雀一样快乐?Yeah,I used to be there,也是。I used to feel sad,depressed,or discouraged nearly every day.

但我学到了一些改变我的东西,我想与你分享这些教训。我想告诉你我是如何成为一个快乐的基督徒的。真正的快乐——不仅仅是假装。现在,some folks just have more naturally cheerful personalities.但那不是我。如果让我处于自然状态,我会倾向于闷闷不乐的态度和抑郁。

How to become a happy Christian

1.我学会了恨罪。

真的。你现在想知道罪与快乐有什么关系?I mean,you're sins are forgiven,you're on your way to Heaven,so yeah,that makes you happy,but….??

Here's the thing.如果你深恶痛绝罪恶,if you begin to grasp the amazing work Jesus did for you on the Cross,你也将开始明白你是多么的幸运和特权!When I start meditating on the work of Calvary – the great price Jesus paid for my sin – then I am humbled.I am moved to tears.I am broken yet joyful.The price for my sin has been paid in full!我的罪过。

Then I start to think about howit wasmysin that nailed Him there,and quickly I began to厌恶sin.Sin is no longer a ‘forbidden fruit',but rather a sneaky poison.Jealousy,心怀怨恨,unforgiveness… all these hidden,基督徒在他们的生活中允许的“可接受的”罪——对我来说都变得可怕和不可接受。

现在,I am not saying I am perfect.我仍然在犯罪,sadly.But I take all sin seriously.I repent and turn from it.I do not think I will be perfect anytime soon,但我不会停止成长和改变直到我是!That is my goal – to overcome sin in my life by the power of Christ.

““你爱公义,恨恶不法;;
Therefore God,Your God,has anointed You
With the oil of gladness above Your companions."“希伯来书1:9

How to become a happy Christian

2.I learned to love righteousness.

Saw this one coming,是吗?I mean if this was how Jesus was anointed with gladness,then it will work the same way for me.

And for you!!

耶稣是我们的完美榜样,我们知道他生活的方式——我们就是这样,too,可以活着!我不喜欢被罪恶玷污的东西。我爱正义,holy living.When I see a person being faithful in money,or refusing to gossip,or being gracious to their accusers – I am awed.It truly makes me so happy to see someone living righteously.我也是,want to live like that!!

I live with my life as an open book.没有秘密,no skeletons in my closet.我每天都在上帝面前行走——保持良心清白。At first,这比我愿意承认的更是罪恶和失败。但一点一点,as I continued reading the Word and praying and fellowshipping with other believers — well,God began to work His righteousness into my life.

三。Understanding how much God loves me.

It wasn't until the last 10 years that I began to understand how deeply God loves me.Would you believe me if I told you that God loves you — YOU!— as much as He loves Jesus?I know!Crazy,right?但耶稣就是这么说的,就在约翰那里:

“I in them and You in Me,that they may be perfected in unity,让全世界都知道你派我来,爱他们,even as You have loved Me.““John 17:23

Understanding God's unfailing,deeper-than-the-ocean love for me has been huge!当我开始把自己和别人比较,或者只是想知道是否有人真的喜欢我,(maybe they are just being nice to me?!!我训练自己回到上帝对我的爱。

Meditate on His repeated words of love.如果你在挣扎,do a Bible word search on ‘love'.它会让你的心好起来,to know God loves you.

我喜欢看爸爸和他们的小孩。温柔与爱!他们是那么温柔体贴,it warms my heart.My husband is just such a loving father to our children – when I watch him,我禁不住为天父对我的爱感到惊讶和敬畏。

It will change your view of the world!它会满足你心中的渴望,it will diminish every hurt that comes from others,it will settle and comfort and strengthen you in every way.

My hope is in Christ;not in this world,and that makes all the difference.点击鸣叫

4.Accepting that I am not a naturally outgoing person.

How did this change me?By learning to accept how God made me,and not getting discouraged comparing myself to my fun-loving,活泼的朋友我开始明白,当这些有趣的人使生活变得有趣和令人兴奋时,(and I LOVE them!!) God has made me with a more relaxed personality for a reason.

People don't come to me when they want to party.They just don't!我不是那种人。I don't know how to throw exciting parties.当我邀请朋友来我家的时候,I set out big platters of simple food,help-yourself stacks of paper plates,还有很多饼干。Then I curl up on the couch and talk my heart out with them.That's my idea of entertaining.🙂

但你知道,sometimes people want to just talk,也是。Sometimes we just need to pour out our heart to each other,and it doesn't matter if the ceiling fan has dust or the paper plates are plain white.所以,接受我的个性真的有助于我成为一个快乐的人。

How to become a happy Christian

多年的生活被挫败,被认为是一个忧郁的人,(眼罩) I can say with all honesty that I rarely have a ‘bad day' or feel blue.

My hope is in Christ;not in this world,and that makes all the difference.

If this has encouraged you in any way,请给我留言或分享这篇文章,I'd appreciate it!!

What to do with burned cookies.

我们都做到了。We forget to set the timer or don't hear it ding,或者什么。Soon our noses tell us"“you forgot the cookies in the oven!“and there we are – burned cookies!太令人沮丧了,after all the hard work,to pull a pan of burnt cookies out of the oven.But one day,我做了一个快乐的小实验,and ever since,,I know what to do with burned cookies!!

What to do with burned cookies

Make a crust.

That's right,crush those babies up and turn them into the base of a creamy,美味的甜点!这就是用柠檬做柠檬水的方法,让我告诉你!😀 I have made several desserts with burned-cookie crust,每一种都是美味的。

我做过一次樱桃(芝士蛋糕)甜点,用烧过的巧克力曲奇做外皮,今天我做了一个巧克力芝士蛋糕布丁,外皮是焦糖蜜饼干。好吃!Anywhere you would use graham crust – use burned cookies.You will be amazed.I often have people ask me for my recipe when I do this,I grin and say:"好,first you burn a panful of cookies…"哈哈!!

What to do with burned cookies

I usually put my burned cookies in a bag and throw them in the freezer til I have time to use them.When I am ready to make a dessert,我把它们拿出来让它们解冻。Then throw them in the blender.I use aNinja Blender,but any blender works fine.Just pulse them until they are all crushed up fine.If it is chocolate chip cookies,或者带坚果的饼干,他们会更胖一点-没关系!!

Making the crust

把饼干屑倒入一个9×13的蛋糕盘中。如果你有一盘烧焦的饼干,this will make somewhere in the range of 4-6 cups of crumbs.But I never measure!I just dump them in the pan and add a chunk of softened butter.大约1/2杯黄油,or one stick.

用手把黄油和面包屑混合在一起。When well mixed,pat the crumbs into a crust.Then cool in the fridge while you make the filling.

这饼干皮真好吃!You can use sugar cookies,chocolate chip cookies,chocolate cookies,peanut butter cookies,姜饼,等。Just pair a flavor of cookies with a filling that compliments the crust.

Chocolate Cheesecake Dessert

I will share the recipe for this dessert,还有地壳。But don't feel stuck because you don't have the right ingredients – you can literally use any pudding flavor and it will be good.

你也可以用馅饼代替布丁,for the top layer.你的电话!!

Today,the 兴发网页下载版cowboys and the vet came over to preg-check the cows.我煮了些咖啡简易甜甜圈for a little coffee break.Then I came into the house and ate a donut and drank some leftover coffee.🙂

I made a simple lunch of meatloaf,roasted baby potatoes,混合蔬菜。Then the chocolate cheesecake for dessert.

Weaning and preg-checking in the snow.

This week the crew was weaning and preg-checking in the snow.The 兴发网页下载版cowboys came to our place and gathered the cows & calves,weaned,preg-checked,and culled.It was mostly sunny,but we did get a few snow flurries as they worked.Pretty chilly,也是。The temps were in the teens most of the time.

狗在养牛的时候很有用!One breaks away from the herd and boom!the dogs are after it!他们会马上把那个臭东西带回来的。I love watching them work.I wish I knew more about working dogs and how to train them.I think I would really enjoy it.

Snow makes pretty neat photos,but in reality even gentle snowfall can be miserable when you are trotting through it.And it's rare to get a ‘gentle' snow in these parts.Mostly stinging ice particles!Hard to acclimate to,for this southern girl.But look at my Jenni-girl!She goes dashing through the snow as if it wasn't there!我想长大后像她一样。

Once all the cattle are in the corrals,他们把小牛从妈妈身上拣下来。My nephew is spending some time with us,詹妮很喜欢让他来帮她的工作牛。They are two of a kind!😀 They are excellent help,顺便说一句。If you don't have teens at your house,you need to find some!!

4 Tips for the perfect homemade pie.

When I was 15,I took over the pie-making in my mom's bakery.Mom still made the filling sometimes,but I made the crust and baked them.It seemed I had a touch for pies,and over time,我进一步发展了我的馅饼烘焙技能。Over the past 20+ years,I learned 4 tips for the perfect homemade pie!!

4 tips for the perfect homemade pie.

完美馅饼的提示

1.Lots of shortening in the crust.这是一个美味的外壳的基础!Whether you use lard,缩短,黄油,or some combination of those,the key word islots!My ratio is 5 cups flour to 2 cups shortening.Here's my crust recipe.

2.Don't overmix the dough.You can get away with a小的bit of overmixing if you have enough shortening. Overmixing is a common problem,though,and you need to be careful not to overmix.It will make your crust tough.轻轻搅拌直到没有松散的碎屑。

三。使用好的填充配方.Don't try to create your own until you get proficient with some recipes.No matter how good the crust,如果馅饼是淡而无味的,那么馅饼就一文不值了。在我看来!🙂 I have a few filling recipes here:
苹果,,
Blackberry,,
Rhubarb,,
Amish shooflY,
西葫芦,,
Old-fashioned apple custard.

4 tips for the perfect pie

Easy method for baking

4.Bake at 350 for 1 hour.我妈妈教我这个把戏。Every fruit pie can be baked at 350° for 1 hour.(pumpkin or pecan pie may be slightly different,but usually close)
我让人嘲笑我,but trust me,这是有效的!!!

Your crust edges won't burn,(no need for those metal covers) and your pie will be baked completely through – no doughy crust on the bottom. However,you may need to leave it slightly less full of filling,because the filling will start to boil,and may boil over if it is too full.

4 tips for the perfect pie

Extra tips:

You can freeze pie filling.冷静点,放在拉链袋或塑料冷冻容器中。

You can freeze pie crust dough.用塑料包装或放在冷冻袋中。To use,thaw and bring to room temperature before rolling.

Make your own premade pie crust rounds!!Roll out pie crust,then gently roll up and wrap the long roll in plastic.Place in freezer.To use,place on counter and bring to room temperature.Unroll and place in pie pan and trim.

Here is a nifty lattice-top cutter!I found it亚马逊;my mom had one just like it.

And here is a silicone mat;also like my mom used!就个人而言,我从来没有用过,但是它们很漂亮很干净。

这些是附属链接,如果你通过他们购买,我可能会赚取一个小佣金。

怀俄明州驼鹿在我的院子里。

我们生活在一个荒野地区,那里有很多野生动物,包括驼鹿。Every spring and fall they come into our yard to eat the leaves off our trees.他们似乎特别喜欢我的海棠树!怀俄明州的驼鹿是非常了不起的动物。

怀俄明驼鹿

怀俄明驼鹿

今天早上,I saw a dark shape out the corner of my eye as I was working in my kitchen.I looked out the window,当然了!有只驼鹿。I grabbed my camera and snapped several photos from my window.Then I slipped on some shoes and stepped outside to take some more photos.

Photography tip:我总是把相机放在柜台上,随时准备出发。No,it may not look as tidy as if it were in a case,but it is ready to go at any minute.我捕获了许多日落,sunrises,野生动物,or other moments,simply by having my camera charged,setting out,and ready to go.I highly recommend this practice if you truly want to improve your photography.

怀俄明驼鹿

怀俄明驼鹿

卡车和马车停在我家和海棠树之间,so I slipped outside and stood behind the trailer to get these next two photos.He was calmly munching on crabapples,完全不害怕我。

这就是问题所在——怀俄明州的驼鹿并不害怕人类。They are very large,and very unpredictable,这使他们非常危险。I am more wary of moose than I am of bear or mountain lion!This big guy was making grumbling sounds as he walked.

怀俄明驼鹿

I love these words in Psalms chapter 50:

I know all the birds of the mountains,,
And the wild beasts of the field are Mine.诗篇50:11

上帝拥有一切。He is Sovereign,他是全世界的主。他甚至知道这些强大的动物。If He knows every beast in the field – then,of course,He knows all xf兴发about me!想想他对我和你有多深的爱?!We can rest secure in His awesome care.

感恩节信——一种新的感恩挑战。

My friend fromCrossroads Horse Ministryasked if I would join them in a challenge of writing letters of Thanksgiving.我说sure!“.I appreciate their love for the Lord and their heart for sharing God's Word.They have a neat ministry;在家里学习圣经,teaching young men to grow in their faith,除了牧场的工作,以及马/狗诊所,在那里他们分享福音。

Letters of Thanksgiving - a new kind of Thankful challenge!!

November 3,2018

Here's how it works: Commit to writing 4 letters — handwritten,注意!The old-fashioned way!不管是对老板,family member,business associate,teacher,博士,朋友……任何祝福你的人。

I have teamed up with Crossroads Horse Ministry and several other neat folks on Instagram to share snippets each day from our Letters of Thanksgiving.您可以找到我们,然后使用hashtag:lettersofthanks继续。随时可以加入,使用hashtag和/或标记我们,这样我们就可以得到祝福!!

I think this is such a great idea.I mean,我们经常在11月做“30天的感谢”,but how often do we take time to personally thank those who have been influential in our lives?在网上敲出一个片段要比拿起电话或拿着纸和笔坐下来容易得多。

Letters of Thanksgiving

这封感恩节挑战信不仅仅是给女孩们的!Guys can write great letters,而且应该!It's ok if younever写信——想想他们会对收件人有多特别。你妈妈呢?a clinician,a gear-maker,一个阻止你做傻事的朋友,老师还是叔叔??

So grab a sheet of paper and a pen,and spend a few minutes today,感谢某人对你生活的影响。You won't regret it and it will be a blessing to them.

15个xf兴发官网圣诞礼物送给你的疯马女孩!!

I'm not sure why,but many little girls tend to be pretty horse-crazy!It's not a bad thing – I'd prefer my girls go nuts over horses,then over fashion and shopping.至少马能把它们带到外面并保持活跃!!

Anyways,我想也许你需要一些想法来给你生活中那个疯马的女孩买圣诞礼物。xf兴发官网Maybe it's a daughter,sister,侄女,或者孙女。我对那些有马的女孩有一些想法,对那些只想养马的人有一些想法。

Gifts Ideas for Horse-crazy girls without horses:

Fall in Wyoming

怀俄明州的秋天很美。I don't think I've seen the colors more vibrant,or the skies brighter blue.I haven't been able to pursue my photography as much as I'd like,the past few months,but I did manage to take my camera out last week and capture some of the fall colors.

秋天在怀俄明

牧马群在梅蒂鲍河附近吃草。

We live along the Medicine Bow River,河底长满了杨树,aspen groves,and willow bushes.秋天它们都变成金黄色,and this year was outstanding!它看起来像一条金河,winding its way through the high prairie.

One day,雨雪交替,云雾和各种各样的细雨。I was driving the 5 miles to our Post Office when I spied this gorgeous rainbow over by the mountain.Thankfully,我有我的相机,so I pulled over and snapped a few photos.It was so beautiful!Just a sliver of rainbow dropping out of the low-rolling clouds,colors as bright as could be.

Rain is welcome

经过几个月的尘土飞扬,bone-dry weather,整天下雨是一种令人愉快的解脱。I felt sorry for the 兴发网页下载版cowboys who were sorting cattle and working all day in the damp wind,不过。These are the times I am especially thankful to be a housewife.😉

I've been dealing with water issues in this house ever since we moved here.The past summer has been the worst,不过。有时候我会为此感到沮丧,and tired of running a trapline for the mice thatwillfind a way in,尽管我尽了最大努力,and the bitter winters in this high country.

但是,I gaze out over this vast expanse of beauty and just let out a contented sigh.我真的很喜欢住在这里,winter and all,and I am thankful to God for bringing us here – for however long it may last.

Just a reminder: you can buy many of my prints over at my online store.凯什洛克摄影学
