Marriage Monday


I just saw a post where a womans 83 and 89 year old parents were baptized!
I was deeply touched that it is never too late in life to see the fruit of purpose.
We are now surrounded by marriages on the brink all around us. Another post spoke of purpose. I think that purpose has been replaced with expectations.

I am purposed to marry myself to the quest of supporting my husband to be all whole and full of life and he is purposed to me. We live that way though. We also have a mutual purpose to provide a loving growing environment to each other. Of course to the children. Without the parents unified in purpose what example do they have of the team gain to keep life goals.
My marriage is such a gift to me. It is a jewel and a treasure of great worth. If we have each other beyond just to dwell together but if we give each other our own selves as a living breathing gift we have everything. It is my purpose to offer all I am able to see Beloved grow into all he is intended to be. I am purposed not to tolerate but to confront IN LOVE WITH RIGHT ATTITUDE with the purpose to be "his gain in character" not just my own expectations. He in turn loves me in that way. We have years of trust earned and developed.

Selfishness rules and expectations demolish all around us and we grieve! Keep focused on your purpose as a spouse and mate. Every evil thing will come and divide and unity will be the first thing assaulted. I still have hope that the unity will return to these lives but God does not push himself on the free wills of his created. Our choice is so powerful to open the doors of battle toward our favor. We are in a battle and the unity of family is on the front line.

Praying that God will always sweetly bless your marriage, I love you my friend.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
