My Word, My Priority for 2014: Jesse

77lchv0123-L

You see that man in that picture?

That’s my husband, Jesse. He is strong and faithful and fun and creative and he works so hard for our family. He’s a good one.

He has been my cheerleader, my supporter, my biggest encourager; he frees me in so many ways. And so I’ve decided this year, while words are rolling around the Internet for the new year, I am giving my word to him.

My word of the year: Jesse

He will be my priority this year, my focus.

I will seek to support, encourage, cheer, and be his loving wife. He comes first. I want him to know how much he matters to me; I want him to know, to feel, to see practically my love for him. In good times and in bad.

Oh yea, I’ll mess it up. I’ll get PMS-y, and crazy sometimes, and I’ll make him want to run away. He’ll make me so angry sometimes I’ll want to throw in the towel. It happens in a marriage, you know? But I won’t give up. I’ll ask for his forgiveness, and I’ll keep on.

Marriage is hard, and it takes time to stretch into it. But it’s worth it.

He’s worth it, because he’s mine.

And I am his.

‘Till death do us part.

Love, Sarah Mae

    I was going to say, “Me too!” but then again, Jesse isn’t my priority. My own hubby is. lol. Been reminding myself of my priorities – God, Hubby, Kids, then everything else… Thanks for the reminder.

    Yeah for you two. My word for this year is: free. In the process, I am finally being free in Jesus which will allow me to really let go of my past once and for all and embrace the true love from my husband (which includes Bible reading together and our own book club reading Christian marriage books all year) and freeing myself from the chains of depression by trying for Baby#2. Glad that you shared your heart.

    I’ve got marriage on my mind for this year, too. My word is REDEEM and I wrote about it here: http://www.ahouseandyard.com/2013/12/when-its-hard-to-not-look-back.html. I hope you’ll all stop by and check it out! Thanks!

    Just the other day, I was trying to think of a good word for this year. I didn’t come up with anything, until I read this post. Hmm, my husbands name (and, really, our children’s names too) would be great. Maybe my word will be “family.”

    My wonderful, loving, hard-working hubby is my priority this year. I will dote on him and let him know just how much he means to me. This year we celebrate 10 years of marriage. We’ve had ups and down, but he’s been there through it all. I could not have lived through a lot of the down’s without my sweetie beside me.
    God Bless!

    I’m scared, but I’m in!

    • Cecilia

      Me too! It’s scary being all accountable!

  • Morgan Escalon

    I love this idea. My husband and I have had a rough year, and I think it would be very nice if I could take some of my time and energy to fully focus on him for once.
