Sunday Celebration

When two become one.

22 years ago the Hunny and I got married. Sometimes I can't even believe it myself. Where did the time go?

We were going to have a date today but I was sick all night with asthma again. I'm holding out, no steroid shot but it is hard to do because I am so tired of this. But God who is able.

Have you ever pondered just what God is able to do?

He flung the stars into space and named each one. He knows when a mountain goat gives birth, he holds back the tides and sets the course of the planets. He holds everything together by just his voice. His word. That is in Job toward the end of the story when Job and God have a little conversation about his trials. We are dusty little creatures and trials are hard for us, especially if we are trying to slay those giants in our own strength. I am a wimp, my strength is nothing but weakness. I am grateful that when I am weak HE is strong. Leaning on the everlasting arms.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with THANKSGIVING, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard you hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4: 6-7

Why are you cast down O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God: for I shall YET praise Him, the help of my countenance and my GOD.
Psalm 43:5

Happy Anniversary! We just celebrated 21 years on the 27th.

I pray you are feeling better. I know asthma can kick your behind. I went through that a little bit years ago and it was brutal.

Happy Anniversary! We celebrate 8 years in a few weeks. A wonderful blessing and trial is marriage!

Have you considered cutting out dairy? That could help your asthma. My asthma went away when we stopped using pharmaceutical meds. I used to live on treatments. I'll be praying for healing and wisdom for you.

Happy Anniversary to two of my favorite people in the whole wide world. XO!!!

You've battled bigger odds than those before you right now . . .
I'm on my knees right beside you and I will be dancing beside you soon in the throes of a joyous celebration when we look back on these trials in our lives and say, "Remember when God . . . ?"

In past days we have danced in victory, wept in angst, clung to one another in fear, and watched the dawning of a new victory calling us to dance.

I have my dancing slippers in hand as I kneel.

I love you sweet, sweet sister.

Thank you for your prayer for Baby A! It is so appreciated. They did finally place him on a ventilator, because he was getting fatigued. He was born at 34 weeks. We are all hoping for the best. Thanks again.
