This month marks one year we’ve lived here and yesterday my husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary!
The number of words it would take to expound on these two precious moments in our lives would be more than one blog post can hold.
However, I am so thankful to God for all He has done in our lives.
Both our move and our marriage have required a great deal of work, sacrifice, and patience.
The rewards of these seeds have been astonishing, to say the least.
Especially, when it comes to our marriage, because we are two extremely different people, but through the love of Jesus Christ we have grown more alike each year.
I’m so blessed to have such a caring, faithful man who loves Jesus.
Not to mention our four children, two sons-in-laws, and three grandchildren, and we are looking forward to adding to our family through adoption.
God never ceases to amaze me.
His ways are so much better than mine.
He has given such us so much, especially when things were the most difficult.
I know His works are perfect and eternal.
I know that whatever God does, It shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, And nothing taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him.
Ecclesiastes 3:14 NKJV
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for these two anniversaries. Thank You most of all for my husband and our family. They are the most treasured, the most cherished of all Your gifts after salvation. Lord, thank You for moving us here and for the way You opened the doors to make it all come together. Lord, thank You for how Your works are eternal. You do things I don’t understand, but I know You are good and Your works are for our good. Lord, please use my life and the lives of our family members to bring glory to Your name and an awareness of You for those who have yet to know You. Lord, Your Word is truth and life. Please remind us to apply it daily, meditate upon it, and write it up on the tablet of our hearts. Thank You, Jesus for all Your blessings. Amen.
