Love

Love is a daily journey - not a weekend trip.

Earlier this week a sweet friend sent me a link to Gary Thomas’s blog. Author Tyler Ward was actually a guest blogger and wrote the post I read entitled, Love is a Journey Not a Free-Fall.
Can I just say the timing was Providential.
My husband & I took a short weekend trip to Chicago this past weekend. My oh my it was a great trip! We’re both avid sports fans, so our main purpose in going was to see the Chicago Cubs (My husband’s team) hosts the Atlanta Braves (my team of choice). I have never been to Wrigley. Since Wrigley is celebrating their 100th birthday, I just had a birthday, AND our teams were playing, we thought there was no better time for us to go!   
Ya'll, seeing a game in Wrigley has been on my bucket list a LONG time. How fun to cross something off the list!! Now I have to find something new for that line on the list!
We had this great weekend trip, and it was followed by a fairly bleak beginning to our week. Now, our problems and adjustments are minuscule at best, but let me tell you this article was a great pick me…
My heart was heavy. We had this great weekend trip, but then we returned and were back in this ‘everyday life’ routine. I was swinging between being infuriated and being so hurt. I know there is a unique special-ness in a trip... 
I also know there can be great comfort and a different type of charm in the everyday.
I’m praying to enjoy the everyday more! Even though I am always looking for new ways to bring a little sparkle and excitement to the ‘ho-hum’ routine, I remind myself that love is an everyday journey – not a weekend trip.
I’ve been pondering how Scripture often talks about the Tree of Life and how a tree represents longevity in the Bible. I want our new marriage to grow like that which means enjoying my husband’s desire for routine. 

Husband & Me @ Wrigley!

If I Had the World's Attention

If I had the whole world’s attention for just one day… I’d teach them about Christ and how He lights my way.
If I had the entire world’s attention for just one day… I’d share with them the fire the Lord instills in me. I’d demonstrate all He asks me to be I’d tell them how His Holy Spirit radiates thru me.
If I had the entire world’s attention for just one day… I’d share with them His love, His devotion, and how He is THE way. I’d share with them the love Jesus provides to the less fortunate, the mercy He grants to each of us, the grace he gives to all, the forgiveness he desires for each of us to receive.
If I had the world’s attention even for just one day… I’d ask them to rise early and to pray. We would pray for each one who does not yet know Him. We would pray for those who have found Him but have gone astray. We’ll pray for those who are down trodden that they may not know He will carry them. We’d pray for those who know Him but are going to be tried today. (Tried in ways that will tempt t…

Lines in the Sand

We draw these imaginary lines in the sand… Then, the tide comes and we wonder why we must start again… We build our castle of sand and hope it stands… Then, the tide comes and we are displeased we must build again… We make our own plans as we dream on the shore, Then, the sun sets and we wish for more.
We wish for more time to enjoy the day. We wish our lines in the sand would stay. We wish our castles could be bigger and stronger. We wish our plans would happen now and not take any longer.

We rise the next day and do all of this again.
We work to maintain, a new way we never entertain. We start each day as a new beginning. Always wishing for a new ending.
Yet, we continue to draw our lines in the sand. We build our temp…
