Oh Goodness!... and a prayer to bless my husband on his birthday...



I used to be so good at keeping my blog going on track, and then distractions came up - like kids' schedules and traveling and were no big deal to handle. But this, THIS... my goodness... I've been very bad. I'm so sorry. Life is happening and my personal blog (here) has been on the back burner. That's one of my major challenges in this coming near future! Scheduling and writing and sharing more what God is teaching me (because there is SO much!) and it's important to keep it in written form... even if just ONE of you read it, ONE of you are encouraged by it, ONE of you will be inspired to write, or paint, or take to your knees and pray...

Tomorrow is my husband's birthday! I'm SO blessed to be married to him! It's not always easy, but it's always worth it, and the hard work pays off. We will celebrate our 30th anniversary soon, and get away next month for an early celebration with friends. But tomorrow is the day I thank God for him, for his birth, the gifted way God created him and equipped him to be my husband! Will you join me?? 

Father I thank you for Mark, and for giving him life and sustaining him through so many difficulties in his life. Thank You for proving yourself to him, so that he turned to You and chose to follow You and bring YOU glory in this life You've given him. Thank You for equipping him to be a husband and a father, and now a father in law and a grandfather! Thank You for filling him daily with what he needs to be my husband, my friend, my encourager and help-mate. Thank You for giving me what I need to be his wife, to encourage and assist him too! Please bless the work of his hands, the way he is a "missionary in a chicken plant" and the way he shines Your light there. Also give him what he needs to be healthy and content in the life you've called us to live. Help him to always seek You, to love YOU most of all, to trust Your ways. 

Thank You Lord, for bringing him into my life when You did!! Please continue to renew our love for each other, as we seek You in all ways...

Amen...

Merry Christmas

I've been really busy, and not busy enough. My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
