LOVE TO YOU...and You...and you!

Someone reminded me today of the greatest gift of love ever - God's gift of His Son Jesus Christ!

There were/are many men and women who have sacrificed their lives and comfort for the Love of Christ.

How much do I love Him?

What can I offer as a pleasing sacrifice to Him in worship for His loving kindness to me?

Today would be a great opportunity to thank the Lord for His mercy; and thank Him for those who love Him enough to suffer for spreading the gospel.

I am grateful for every occasion to celebrate people I love; to do special things, and say special words.
However in the precious ten years I have been married to AJ, I have learned that it is more important to behave as I should
every day. I myself, have tried all the excuses for why this isn't possible. You know what? It's way more possible than I first thought!

Because of The Lord and lots of practice, it is now difficult for me and AJ to find ways to make these occasions more special than an average day!

Praise HIM who imparts power to do the impossible! (And I love YOU babe!)

I love what you said sis! You say it Sista! lol
(Nick would roll his eyes for sure if he saw me say that/write that?...LOL)
I know what you mean about it being hard to make it better then other days...I do not have an amazing 10 years to speak of...however, I run into this problem often... Then again, it doesn't feel a whole lot like a problem as long as you both are happy to just enjoy another blessed day. Nick and I both had very long/full work and school days...we didn't get to one another until after 7.. We then got hulas (tasted better then normal!) and had made a picnic on our living room floor to eat and watch a movie...we didn't end up doing either, we were both soo tired...we did play a fun game called close the box that Nicks Uncle showed us and is now, one of Nicks (and our) favorite games.... Nick read some out of Psalms and then we crashed. It was a good night. I woke up in so much pain...but that is a new day with it's own troubles and God is faithful as ever for those days TOO! I still have a HUGE head ach ect ect...though, so I am going to say good night and I love you Sis! I miss all of you! Oh and tell our little LOVES, Nick and I can hardly WAIT for new fridge pics!!! Also, Nick sends his love and a HUGE HUG!
He tells Zach and Clay to find out how the fishing is up there!?
