Perhaps


When I see the weakness in each of our lives . . .
when I see the sin, sometimes so glaring . . .
I marvel, shake my head and stand in awe . . .
how can it be that the two of us would be gifted with this marriage?



Perhaps our Father is showing He will have mercy on whom He will have mercy?



Perhaps it is yet another example of free grace, totally unmerited?



Perhaps we will never know, fully, why He would choose two thoroughly broken sinful people and put them together making one 'whole'.



One thing I do know, I am humbled, awestruck and forever thankful for this gift ~ the gift of this marriage.

Happy Anniversary, my love! It sometimes seems insane, the love we have for each other, but we both know Who gets the glory for this, don't we?

Not to us, O Lord, not to us but to Your name give glory, for Your mercy and loving kindness and for the sake of Your truth and faithfulness! (Psalm 115:1)

Happy Anniversary! I have to say, you guys look young for how much of life you have already experienced. So glad your family had a safe, fun, and faith-building experience in Georgia. I wish I had learned true repentance from a young age! Your kids are so blessed. Enjoy being back home again.

Happy Anniversary Michelle...perhaps it is that Christ is pleased to show how much He loves His bride by showing the world a Christian man and woman who love Him and each other! Keep being that example of Christ and His bride the church to a world that so desperately needs it!

In Him,
Jackie
