This Schedule Has Taken a Toll on Their Marriage
Continued Audrey: "We know we need to slow down, but as Dallas Willard puts it, “we intend what is right, but we avoid the life that would make it a reality.” Instead, we keep running, keep pushing, keep producing and keep squeezing all the margin out of our lives. It’s robbing our joy, stealing our peace, and hindering our ability to love."
"If you’ve ever looked at or read a post from us and thought “They must just have it all together.” Volume up for this one....WE DON’T."
Things Have Not Been Easy
"We fight, struggle, cry, and face challenges just like anyone," added Audrey, honing in on her social media profile as follows: "I’m saying this here because if you look at my Instagram feed from the past 3 weeks you don’t see the long tearful conversations, the hurtful remarks, the compiling complaints, the critical spirits, the prideful inner dialogue, or our unloving and disrespectful attitudes. You don’t see the full picture."
How Have They Solved This?
They haven't, but... "a few nights ago we went for an evening drive to talk through some struggles and we stumbled upon a trestle...," she continued in this post.
Relying on a Higher Power
"It was like God knew we needed something that would force us both to smile," Audrey added.
She Included a Photo of Herself Smiling with Jeremy, But...
"Although you can’t tell by the photo, this wasn’t a happy night. I cried shortly after we snapped this photo. I’m saying this because I don’t want you to be deceived by the highlight reel that is “the gram.” We all have a messy behind the scenes reality. ALL OF US."
