The Lord Continues to Transform...

(One of our traditional date-night picture spots...)

It's been quite a while since I've posted. However, this does not signify that there has been a lack of noteworthy moments in the past year! On the contrary, God has done so much in my life and I am thankful! I would say that He has taught me most what love is. I am thankful He doesn't leave us to ourselves! We would forever be lost. It is through my husband that God has shown me what HIS love is all about. The way Josh has loved, forgiven, exemplified patience, shown kindness, throughout our married years has opened up my eyes to so much.

1.) How little I love...I hadn't realized, but much of the way I loved was dependent upon actions. Very much a work-based love. Josh has loved me in times when I have been most unlovable :-)

And 2.) How MUCH God loves! He loves enough to reprimand us when we are wrong or heading in the wrong direction. My darling husband does this often for me :-)...

There have been times he has felt the need to "reprimand" me, taking me to scripture to show me how my attitude, discouragement, not from the Lord. How thankful I am for a husband who loves me and who cares enough to tell me when I am not doing/thinking right! And how thankful I am for a God who cares about every thought and action of His children, and how willing He is that we walk rightly that He will scold us when necessary!

A few things I am thankful for in my husband:

1) How much he loves God and desires to serve Him
2) The way he loves me and shows me God's love
3) How he loves the children
4) He works hard to provide for us

5) He is a command man :-)
6) How he leads our family in God's word

7) He enjoys giving to others in need
8) He loves to play the guitar with me

9) His laugh :-)
10) His hugs

I love you! xoxo
