One of my favorite blog posts to read from other bloggers is their iPhone photo dumps…I love pictures and the stories they tell so, I thought I’d do one of my own. This last week was a rough one for me. I feel like I’ve been on a rollercoaster ride and I just want to get the heck off (pardon my language). But…seriously…I don’t like rollercoasters. However, throughout the week starting from this past weekend, I’ve taken a few pics on my iPhone that pretty much sum up my life at the moment.
Sounds crazy, right? But…it’s true. That sprained shoulder may very well have saved my life. How? Well, simply put, had I not sprained my shoulder, I wouldn’t have gone to the doctor, and had I not gone to the doctor, I would’ve never had my blood pressure checked. That’s where the possible life-saving effect comes in…
9 Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. 10 If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. 11 Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? 12 A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer… (NLT)
This Scripture Verse completely describes what marriage should be…two people helping each other succeed…two people helping one another if they should fall…two people conquering whatever comes their way together. It’s a beautiful sentiment, sure…but it is also an attainable goal! Yay! That’s good news, y’all! Marriage can be that Scripture brought to life on a daily basis…but how?
This is my first time doing a post like this and I think it’s kind of a fun change of pace, I hope you will too!
Hello, Monday! Thank you for a day off filled with sunshine and warm weather. Thank you for a text from work letting me know I have the whole week off! Oh, the blogging that will be done!
I’m so excited about today’s post for a couple of reasons: 1. I think it could be helpful to somebody, and 2. I get to showcase the husband and my first ever vlog together!! Yay! He and I get asked a lot about how we’ve stayed together for so long even though we started out so young and how we stay happy so, we figured it’d be best to sit down and just share our hearts about some of the things that work for us. Hopefully, they’ll be helpful to you too.
We decided to talk about How to Live Peacefully with Your Opposite because that’s exactly what we are…opposites. We think differently, communicate differently, have different tastes in everything from books to music to movies to food…we see the same situations differently and we deal with things differently as well. We are polar opposites. So, how do we make it work?
Happy Monday, friends! I’m excited for a new week and really, really excited to debut the husband and my first ever marriage vlog on Wednesday!! Eek!! After last week’s post about the crazy circumstances surrounding the early part of our relationship (read about that here), we decided to do something together that y’all could see and get to know us a little better. I think it turned out pretty well considering we’ve never done anything like it before…and I believe you will find it both entertaining and informative. But…that’s not what today’s post is about.
Purpose is a funny thing. The word kind of sounds funny, yes, but that’s not what I mean. It seems as though the quest for purpose is the most journeyed destination of all. Everywhere I go I hear people talking about trying to find their purpose or I see books or articles on how to discover your purpose.
Basically, people want to know why they exist…why God put them on this earth and what He wants them to accomplish. It’s a fair question that I dare say just about everybody reading this has asked (the writer included). Could it be that we all have many purposes though? I mean…we search and search for that ONE purpose…the one that will cause the whole world to make sense to us…the one that will answer any question we’ve ever had about ourselves and our place in the world. What if we’re called to do several things? What if we have different purposes for different times in our lives?
