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

My Dad's B-day!

 
My dad's birthday was a few days, I guess more like a couple weeks ago now and we celebrated as always...special dinner and dessert.

Owen, there for every minute.  I don't know who is more excited, him or dad.


 
Perfect





 

Cake time!









 
We did the usual, a walk on the beach, dinner, and dessert.  Last year we did have a surprise party for him, but this year it was just us.  We had a nice and fun time together.
I am so thankful for him, with all we have been through and all he has been through he is such a good example to us all.  Of what a slave of the Lord should look like, of what a husband and father should look like. We have all grown so much closer to God and to each other in these last five year.  Life brings challenges, heartaches, sicknesses, sorrows-trails. Things that make us lean on Christ, because without Him we would be nothing, we can do nothing and would always be discouraged, searching and striving towards something, that when we get, it isn't enough-we want more.  We can only be satisfied in Christ.
Sooner or later everyone will realize this and I know that my dad has and that he has taught us this so many times.  That no matter what we do, whether it be hard or easy do all to the glory of God.
I just wanted to share and encourag and dad has been my inspiration today!
Thank you and...don't forget to be AWESOME!
