Happy Friendship Anniversary!

Yes. I'm making up a holiday, but it's one worth celebrating!

32 years ago today, after the Wednesday night Bible Study, I met this tall, towhead, surfing cowboy that loved Jesus.

I felt safe when I met him, like he would always protect me. It was as if I finally found my big brother (in the Lord) even though he was younger than me. 

He says it was love at first sight... I just felt so peaceful. I knew we would be friends forever. 

The next day he said he would marry me and we began pre-marital counseling. 

A few weeks later, he got on one knee and presented the ring with an official proposal of marriage. 

Six months and a day from the day we met, we were married!

Thank you to all of you that have prayed for us over the years. Marriage is hard work, and a good one requires constantly dying to self, and lots of forgiving. 


Thank you Mark Bromley for the first 32 years of friendship, and 31½ years of marriage. 

Thank You Jesus for the example of sacrificial love and equipping us to fight for our marriage commitment.

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
