When Sinners Say "I Do" Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage

The gospel is something we need in every area of our lives.  In marriage and in singleness.  In joy and in sorrow.  In good times and in hard times.  When life feels good and when life feels confusing.  This book showed so much of my need for Jesus and His grace. It calls us to look at our own sins and not be so easy to point out the sins of those around us.   It shows the great gravity of our sins.  We can all tend to point fingers and defend or blame our sins on others or life circumstances.  I think especially today it is so easy to do this and not truly see our sins.  "It is wrong, not because of what it does to me, or my spouse, or child, or neighbor, but because it is an act of rebellion against the infinitely holy and majestic God." -Jerry Bridges "There can be no small sins against a great God." -J.I. Packer Dave Harvey mentions in the book that with true sorrow of our "little sins", our awareness of God and His mercy grow. Be quick to see our own

Our 4th of July...

 
The guys played baseball!














 
We spent our fourth of July at our Grandpas place like we have since we've been here, but this time we were there without grandpa.  Our first year without him.  It is kind of weird to think about and hard to grasp, but that's just it, no grandpa.  The Lord has brought peace in my heart through this and has allowed me to be ok, but not seeing him during the fourth of July and then not being able to tell him I got my license have been hard reminders, that he is no longer here.
Our Fourth was some what the same like every other year, Aunt Annie and her family were at grandpas place, we spent the afternoon at the beach, swimming in the waves, hamburgers and hot dogs for dinner and an amazing firework show all around us.  This year the boys played baseball with some friends from church, Uncle Kyle came out for the week, and the sun was actually out!
