God is Good...All the Time.

I am often reminded of how tremendously blessed I am in this life. I truly don't deserve it. I have a supportive and loving family (two now!), a husband who loves me and cares for me, friends that do as well. I have a job in which I am appreciated and looked after, a roof over my head, food on the table, and the ability and desire to cook it :o)

I am blessed. My Creator has given me so much. Salvation, love, mercy and grace, plus everything mentioned above. What more do I really need?

Pictured here are five testimonies to God's grace in my life. My Bridesmaids and Matron of Honour. When I see this picture I am filled to overflowing with love and appreciation for who each and every one of these ladies are and their individual roles in my life. Not only in the past before the engagement, or in the months leading to the wedding, or in the wedding itself, but their roles in my life in day-to-day living and growing and understanding of friendship and who God is. I learn from each and every one of them. They each have something so unique that they offer me, and I am thankful for them. What an honor it was to have them stand by my side as witnesses at our wedding. What an honor it is to have them walk through this life along with me as witnesses through each day to God's great provision, creativity, and grace.

To my beautiful ladies: You are reflections of His glory not only in my life but in each of the dark and narrow places where you shine His light. Thank you for always being there for me. I love you, each and every one.

Not enough time

Lord though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I'm not scared cause You're holding my breath
I only fear that I don't have enough time left
To tell the world that there's no time left, Lord please
from Group 1 Crew's "Forgive Me"

I have to wonder. Am I really afraid that "I don't have enough time left/to tell the world that there's no time left" or is it really a fear of not having enough time to get everything I want and experience all I think I need to experience?

Pretty sad when you think about how temporary this life really is and how permanent eternity is.
