The Lord has blessed me more over the past 7 months than I ever would have guessed. Last night Jon and I "celebrated" 7 months of marriage - well it was more like a mini-celebration. Jon's Grandparents bought some steaks from Omaha Steak and decided to share a few with us! We grilled those and made scalloped potatoes, green beans, and biscuits. Jon brought me a lovely bouquet of flowers, and we just enjoyed a dinner at home together! Then we went Christmas shopping and accomplished so much! It is just great to spend time together - and I am loving this first Holiday Season as a wife!
One thing I have seen the Lord do over the past seven months that stands out so clearly to me is to mold Jon and I in our personalities to fill the roles the Lord created us to fill. Jon is so gentle and patient, but through the gentleness and patience that the Lord has given Him Jon leads us as a family in such a Christ honoring way. I on the other hand may at times lack gentleness and patience, but the Lord is so faithful, and in ways that I cannot even understand the Lord has placed in me an intense desire to follow Jon! I am so thankful for the way the Lord guides us. It is more and more clear each day that the Lord is in control - not Jon and especially not myself - when we place Him first in our lives!
Jon and I BOTH continue to pray together and individually that the Lord will fill our heart and our home with his presence, peace and provision because when we are weak He is SO strong! Join us in praying for our relationship - and your own relationships today!
I love my husband :)
