So, last week was our 3rd Wedding Anniversary. And really, time does fly. I feel like it was just yesterday; we changed vows and felt the butterflies in my stomach. But, hey! 3 years later, life couldn’t be more beautiful than this. We’ve blessed with such a healthy and happy baby, promising job and future, surrounded by a very supportive communities, been able to pastoring such a rad and passionate bunch of youths, travelled to different countries and experienced quite various culture in each country. Most importantly, our love towards one another is getting stronger than ever. Well, I have to admit that it is not easy to stay in love, especially when there are kids involve in the family, LOVE doesn’t come easy, it requires a lot of work and effort.
It is true that FALLING IN LOVE is a decision. but STAYING IN LOVE is a commitment.
Staying in love when kids are involved is……SOMETHING ELSE. Most of our times, energies, budgets goes to the kids. I mean, who does has a spare time to shop for your own bras? Or maybe a new pack of boxer? Hello, find me at the playground park or call me at home. We’re still struggling in this term too, just like the other couples out there. But we decided to take our relationship to the next level, the busier we are, the more quality time we need to make. Quality time means KIDS FREE. yesss!! So, here we are enjoying our lunch date to celebrate US. 😉 Don’t worry about the kids, they are more behave without the parents around though. What a surprised fact it is.
Went out to Botanical Garden, and enjoying a beautiful lunch and coffee of course at Botanic Restaurant . Dear seafood lovers, I would recommend you to try the squid ink parpadelle.
And we continued with some walks around the garden and photoshoot. Just like our daily routine, right?
It was a fun few hours, it was relaxing and refreshing. We rekindled our first love through some old jokes, future plans, and life chats. Getting to know my spouse more gave me a lot of respect towards him. He is such a Godly man who does his part as stated in Ephesians 5:25-27
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing[b] her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.
He put me and the kid above himself, he never fails to give his best for the family and protects us anywhere and anytime. I salute him for all the works he has done for the family. And I always proud to call him my husband. He inspired me every day to be a better woman and wife for him according to Ephesians 5:22-24.
22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
Not because what he has done to me, but because it is God’s commandment to all wives. And I believe that this is one of the key to unlock a happiness in our marriage. When both parties are doing their part in Christ. His love will continually overflows within our hearts and our families. Once again..HAPPY 3RD ANNIVERSARY TO THE TJUNGS. ❤ ❤
