When The Wrong One Is The Right One

Today is my wedding anniversary, and in honor of the love of my life, I wanted to share a little with y'all, my virtual besties

Our marriage never should have worked out. Statistically, we shouldn't have beat the odds. You see, my husband was from the wrong side of the tracks marrying a girl, that, let's just say, could have been Sandra Dee. Yep, we should have been doomed from the start. But here's the really cool part, God always has a plan, and He has the power to turn all things into good for His glory. Do I hear an Amen! We should have been doomed from the get go, but God sees the WHOLE picture. He doesn't see obstacles the same way we do, he sees into our souls and He knows EXACTLY what we need. Do I hear another Amen?!

Twenty three years ago, God put a miraculous plan into action and it began with two polar opposite humans saying 'I do' before a justice of the peace. It wasn't all fairy dust and unicorns, let me tell you, but God doesn't care about easy. God put two opposites together on the spin cycle in the washer and beat out our weaknesses that we never could have accomplished alone. He took two diamonds in the rough and used them to smooth out the lumps and bumps of each other. In other words, he turned all the bad to His good. That's just what He does. 

God knew exactly what would be in store for us if we made it through the tough years. He knew the beauty of this little farm He brought us to and how much we'd enjoy it all if we could just make it through all the bumps in the road. He knew that we'd finally get it that 'less really is more'. I am so thank-full that I serve an ALL knowing God!

I'm so grateful for this man that God saw was made for me. Happy Anniversary Sweetheart!

I'll Get By With A Little Help From My Friends

Today, let's get real, o.k.? Can we? We're close, right? I've been noticing that too many times, the busy-ness that's life takes us over. It can begin to feel like life is leading us, rather than the other way around. It becomes really easy to lose focus on what's most important. Relationships. When God created man, He knew that it was good and perfect in every way, but He could see that Adam was lonely. Then came Eve. His companion, his lover, his friend. Then it was perfect. Man needs companionship to thrive. We depend on one another for love and comfort and that's just the way God intended. So what are friends? Is friend more of an adjective we use to describe some one's status in our life. I've let life take me over. I've let it's busy-ness fill me and all my time. Our children and our husband are gifts entrusted in our care by God, but our friends have also been placed on our paths by God for reasons that we may or may not understand. Friend should not be an adjective used to describe another person, but an ACTION

It happens to all of us. We get all wrapped up in life and forget what's most important. It's happened to me. Has it happened to you? So here's a friendly reminder to you and me both. Look around at your bestest friends, what might they need and what can you do for them? I think that if we go back to the very beginning and see what all God created, we'll see that we were put here to take care of one another and love on one another. To care for others as we would like to be cared for. Sound familiar? Yeah, Jesus said that. It's so easy to get distracted and our priorities get all out of whack. So, let's make a pact, let's promise that today we will look around at our friend's lives and see if there is any way we can actively improve their life. Pinky swear, k? Then come back and tell me in the comments what you did and how it helped your friend. Let's inspire one another! Let's lift one another up today! So, shoo, get going, take action! I know I'm gonna!
