I know you are probably wondering, why Living life with Character?
Let's begin with us: my hubby and I. We are opposites which means we, on a daily basis, give each other a lot of grace (okay, I think he gives me more grace)! He is very organized, type A personality. He loves the details and getting things right the first time. He grew up with 3 older brothers in a military type family.
I on the other hand... grew up with 3 younger sisters, am disorganized (even though I desire to be organized), emotional, and the attitude of "well, if it gets done, it gets done". I have to remind the hubby to slow down while he reminds me to remember the details!
Yes, opposites do attract--and it definitely works! :) My hubby and I get along quite well.
The phrase "living with character" actually came from my husband. We were building something together (it could have been furniture or something) and I mentioned how it wasn't perfect. My dear husband who really does like things in order and could be considered a perfectionist says to me, "honey, we're living life with character so it doesn't matter". For him, that was a mouthful! :)
Our life is not as planned as what we want it to be nor is it as perfect as we thought our dreams would turn into. We've been married for 3 years and lets just say NOTHING is turning out like we had planned. We thought by now we'd have a 2 year old and maybe one on the way while working at our dream jobs. However, here we are... no kids, and no dream jobs (still trying to get one!). We know that God has blessed us even though it doesn't always feel like it.
We are just a boy and a girl trying to figure out where God wants us to go, and on the way we are living life with character!
