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 Dog

Hey all!  So guess what?  We got a dog.  Yes WE got a dog.  But this is probably late news to most.  I meant to post something like this earlier, but I got busy and distracted, but here it is now and with a few pictures.
We got her a few weeks ago and since then it has been an up and down experience. 
My dad and younger siblings really, really wanted a dog and of course they got one.  The rest of us either got talked into it or had no other choice.  But yeah, within a week of determination and seeking and researching we got one.  My mom wanted a dog that would be smaller, that doesn't shed, and a good family pet.  So we got a goldendoodle.
Our main goal right now is train, train, train.  No biting, which she seems to really like, no running away from us, sit, no barking and of course the housetraining.  It's slow and most of the time frustrating, especially when she get's all hyper, but we are getting her now. 
We are going camping this weekend with her, so it will be kind of interesting.  We will see how it goes.
