Breath Taking Heights, And Choking Swamps

First up, I want to say thank-you to each of you dear ones, that took the time to leave such encouraging words in my last post. A peace washed over me soon after reading all your sweet words. And even though I do not know if GOD is going to fulfil my desires to become a mother, I do know that HE holds my future, and HE does know what is best for my life. :D

"Romance, sex, and childbearing are temporary gifts of God. They are not part of the next life. And they are not guaranteed even for this life. They are one possible path through the narrow way to Paradise. Marriage passes through breathtaking heights and through swamps with choking vapors. It makes many things sweeter, and with it come bitter providences.”
John Piper, This Momentary Marriage Quote 
 
It was an emotionally turbulent week last week. Filled with highs and lows. Flying high, with my returning to regular communion with GOD. And then the disappointment at not being a mother. 
 
And I am ashamed to say, that I tended to push my husband away while I was hurting.
 
But the LORD showed me how wrong that was, and after asking HIS forgiveness, I asked Justin for his.
 
GOD does not promise us happiness in this life. It is only a temporary pleasure, on this path we are taking to our forever home in heaven (if we have accepted HIS Son into our lives).
 
 
I am thankful for this gift of marriage.
 
 
As last week showed, it is filled with breathtaking heights, and swamps with choking vapors.
 
 
But marriage does make the path of life sweeter.
 
 
I feel blessed beyond measure to be a part of a marriage. And I cannot wait to continue this path, and see where GOD is going to lead us next.
 
 
Pics are from some much needed quality time, spent this past weekend.
 
What has the LORD brought into your life, to make the path sweeter?
 
Have a wonderfully blessed day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Oh, Angel, again I am so thankful for your open heart!

    I wish I could bring coffee and creamer and hear fellowship with you -- it's so strange how going through the same difficulties can bring such close ties.

    I am so thankful you let your hubby into you, rather both of your worlds. God is so wise in giving us men who want to bring encouragement, love, and understanding to us when we are swamped over with care, sorrow, and worry. God's blessings on you both as you journey together through the heights and depths of marriage and grow closer to each other.

    I will be praying for you, dear friend!!

    Love and prayer!

Well hello there! Thanks for stopping by! I LOVE to hear from you all out there. Just please remember to keep everything kind and Christ-like. In the words of that wise papa rabbit, "If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all". :)
