|A reminder every morning to value our union|
|A welcome to others by our front door--the joys of hospitality|
You will be amazed at all the beautiful things around you, that will open you up to living with childlike obedience.
|Reminders of our special day|
|Stepping out on our patio for some fresh herbs!|
|Bird of paradise flower, thoughts of our eternal paradise that waits|
|This happy hibiscus|
|Mama duck and her babies|
I pray that moments like these will help you turn from your rebellion and hardness of heart, and find the joy and wonder that I have found in true surrender. I have realized again,
that choosing to submit to God and my husband, is really a door to joy, that can be found no other way. Choosing my own ways over His, over my husband's (apart from following into sin) is really not the answer. Joyful surrender is becoming more and more of a delight.
And finding the beauty all
around me in these joy moments, little snippets of grace, makes the hard days oh-so-bearable. How do you fight through the hard days? Please share in the comments.
As for the conclusion of my tough day...in his ever gentle ways, my honey helped me find my way back to repentance, the refreshing streams of Grace that only God can offer, but that often come to me through Paul's words and actions.
