"So as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy"
~Colossians 1:10-11

thoughts for today

"This is the Lord's doing;
it is marvelous in our eyes.
This is the day that the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it."
~Psalm 118:23-24

Six years ago today I married my husband.
The above verses were on our wedding invitations.
It is wonderful to look back and see how the Lord was the one who brought us together, and even more so, HE is the one who has continued to knit our hearts and lives together more and more each year. I cannot express how much I have changed in the last 6 years and how marriage can truly be a wonderful refining process. When we allow struggles and difficulties to be viewed through an eternal perspective we can use them rather then tearing us down and discouraging us to grow us into the likeness of Christ.
But, lest you wonder if the last 6 years has been all struggles :-) It hasn't.
We have been blessed with 3 little children and another one due any day now. Our lives are busy, sometimes crazy but full of joy. I wouldn't trade it for anything!
