My Valentine!!


As I reflect on the past *almost* 17 years of my life there is one thing I can say for sure: I am so blessed to be loved by such a wonderful, godly man.
I just had to take a minute and express how blessed I truly am - every day by this man. He is a loving husband, devoted father and faithful child of God. As we have moved into a different season of our life and as we embark on this new adventure together we grow again. This move has strengthened our marriage, caused us to re-look at how we communicate and provided us with opportunity to lean on and support one another. Just when I think things could not get any better - God proves me wrong. Our marriage is not perfect, we are flawed people, but God provides us with strength when we are weak.
I spend a lot of time counseling young girls about boys...You could not pay me enough to be a teenage girl again! But if I could only impress upon them the importance of God being the center of all of our relationships they would have a very different perspective. It is when we try to be in control that it all goes haywire - and I am thankful to be in a relationship where we can both gently remind each other of that when we need it.
