I am grateful for My Marriage

 7.2.11

 This month where hearts are hanging all over I find it to be the perfect time to stop and consider our marriages, our roles as wives, as lovers, as friends to our husband. It is always good to stop and set apart times to nurture our marriage, to water it, to read about marriage and what it means to be in this beautiful covenant.

Today I am taking the time to express my gratitude for my Beloved. And dear friend, if God's providence has brought you to a place where you have no husband by your side, why not considering giving thanks today to God specifically for being your Husband, your Maker.

My Beloved and I in New Zealand


1118. His hand holding mine.

1119. His patience with me.

1120. My Beloved's diligence.

1121. Always giving.

1122. I am grateful because I can find in his arms love.

1123. Tears we have shed together.

1124. Times of struggles that make us  grow.

1125. Taking care of my van's gas.

1126. I am grateful because He wakes up early to read the Word.

1127. Because He is a loving father.

1128. Because he never quits.

1129. For taking care of me with gentleness when I am not feeling well.

1130. For all the books he lets me buy :)

1131. For the notes he has written me.

1132. I am grateful because he has literally taken me around the world holding hands, dreaming together.

1133. I am grateful because I wake up and he is always there.

1134. I am grateful because he is slow to anger.

1135. Because his arms are strong to hold my weaknesses.

1136. Because I can stay at home.

1137. I am grateful because he says that my cheesecake is the best in the world ever! (It makes me happy!)

1138. I am grateful because I can take of him when he doesn't feel well.

1139. I am grateful that I am his helpmate.

1140. I am grateful for real love, in real life.

1141. I am grateful that we have a God who forgives us when we sin against each other.

1142. I am grateful that we have God's Word to show us how to love.

1143. I am grateful that even though we have said words that do not edify each other's life; God's grace abounds and we always find a place to ask forgiveness.

1144. I am grateful for the marriage bed.

1145. I am grateful for the fruit of our love, our children.

1146. I am grateful to see our bodies changing together.

1147. A glass of red wine almost every night.

1148. I am so thankful that our God has brought us to this day together.

1149. I am grateful that we know nothing about the future except that all things work for good for those who love the Lord; and that our times are in the hands of a Sovereign and loving God.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
