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

Evelyns' Birthday

Evelyn turned 13 this last week.  Crazy how time flies.  I can't beleive we are almost in April...but SERIOUSLY we are all getting so old.
We threw a surprise birthday part for her, but she is a bit snoopy and she found out a couple days before the party.  We tried.  
Party decorations.  She wanted pink and gold.

We managed to get 13 candles onto one small cupcake

Happy Birthday to YOU


...And thank yous

The day of her birthday we went shopping, got frozen yogurt, and watched a movie.

She has been asking for an iPod for a few months now, so it really wasn't a huge surprise when she got one.  But she loves it!
