Do I need to fight or pray?

Most of us have dreamed to have a perfect life when we were little kids. We loved those movies which ended with a scene where the groom kisses the beautiful bride and the end of the movie be announced with: “And they lived happily ever after” statement.

Well, we now know very well that there is no “lived happily ever after” kind of life or marriage. After we get married, we fight because we come very close to each other. Continue reading Do I need to fight or pray?

Our marriage is a direct reflection of our spiritual life

When the Word of commands how a wife needs to be in her marriage, it reads like this: “Wives, submit yourselves to your own husband” and it doesn’t stop there. It says, “Submit to your husbands as you do to the LORD”. And the Word commands husbands this way: “Husbands, love your wives” and it doesn’t stop there. It continues saying, “just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her”. (Ephesians 5:21-33) Continue reading Our marriage is a direct reflection of our spiritual life

Again, Her Sexuality?

Yes, woman’s sexual nature is more complicated than every creature’s sexual nature combined.

It is intriguing for me to read the findings of many researchers who are spending every waking hour of their life, trying to figure out woman’s sexuality. And most of the time, their conclusion reads something like, “She is complicated”. Duh!

The funny thing is though some want to fix her sexuality as if it was a problem or a mistake on God’s part and when they try to fix it, they create even more complicated problems. Continue reading Again, Her Sexuality?

Behind the Victory of April Fool’s Day

If you read my post yesterday, you will know what I’m about to write.

Well, did my oldest son trick me yesterday? No, he didn’t.

After 3pm, I was in a very tense and heightened mode that I was scared how I was going to react if something real happened to my son. But that didn’t deter me from being very, very suspicious of him. Continue reading Behind the Victory of April Fool’s Day

April Fool’s Day

I don’t know how your early morning started but mine was a bit dramatic and somehow a frustrating one and I will tell you why.

So, I was running around to make it to our kids’ school before the door closes. And when I went downstairs and I heard some cheering and laughter. While I was setting up my tea, I realized that today is April Fool’s Day.

I mean, I heard them saying it and who would believe me if I said “they tricked me anyways”? Yes, they did, and not once, not twice but three times. Continue reading April Fool’s Day

“Is this the person God wanted me to marry?”

This is one of the questions married people should not ask. “Is this the right person?” is a legitimate question for unmarried couples to ask before they tie the knot.

But, after marriage, that question is irrelevant. Asking God such a question after marriage is like asking God if He was sure of creating us. Did you hear me? Yes, after marriage, after a couple exchanges their vows and becomes one in sexual intimacy, the deal is closed. They are meant to be together until death do them part. The file is closed. We can’t bring the jury back to court again to reach to another verdict for the case that is closed.

I know this is not the world view when it comes to marriage but we are not of this world, are we? (John 15:19) Continue reading “Is this the person God wanted me to marry?”

March 27, 2014, 17 Years of Our Wedding Anniversary!

Wow, March 27, 1997 was the day the man I love (Berhan) and I exchanged our vows, before a judge, to be one till death do us part.

I was thinking of our anniversary throughout the week but for some reason I forgot about it this morning. I dropped off our kids to school and on my way back home, my favorite song came in the radio and I remembered that beautiful Thursday morning, March 27, 1997. I got home and I said to the man I always love, “Hey, happy anniversary” and I started crying. Berhan gave me my favorite squishy hug saying “happy anniversary, my Love”. I continued crying. I know I was crying out of joy but I had a reason too. Continue reading March 27, 2014, 17 Years of Our Wedding Anniversary!

Another question regarding the A4P Match Making Service

“So, you said, friendship has to come first before a couple decides to proceed to a relationship. But now when you offer this matching service, isn’t that contrary to what you’ve been telling us to follow through? This service encourages people to move to a relationship before they even have a chance to build a friendship.”

This question came from the person who has been with A4P from day one or I guess day three, lol. So, when he said “as you said”, he knows what he is talking about. So, let me buckle up my seat belt and defend my side. Continue reading Another question regarding the A4P Match Making Service
