As the saying goes "promises are made to be broken" and yet I still find myself making promises to my family that I have difficulty keeping. For instance: I told my husband to spend less time in front of my computer, but due some unavoidable circumstances every once in awhile I fail to keep it. The sad thing is that I promise to be more patient with my son, but I couldn't control my temper when he doesn't listen to me, thus breaking his heart and mine, too!
I am not a perfect wife, but believe it or not I am trying to be perfect on keeping my promises because I don't want my family to stop trusting me for breaking promises. It is not healthy for me and my family to make promises I couldn't keep. God is good because HE gives me wonderful husband who understand me and have enough patience to forgive and give me another chance to try keep those promises. Hubby and I promised to each other that no matter what happen, we would never leave each other and we will be there for each other through good and bad times. It's been 9 years since we got married...and here we are still together. Those trials and challenges made us stronger and better person and couple. We owe it to God who is always there for us.
