Real Reality

Ephesians 5:20
Good News Translation (GNT)

20 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, always give thanks for everything to God the Father.

With it being the month of November, it seemed appropriate to to focus on thankfulness.  Now, we all know this shouldn't be reserved for November, but it is helpful to have a reason to focus on it!  

Like most people I know, my life is not perfect.  There are things I would like to change or improve or completely do away with.  It is very hard, sometimes, to get past those things to be able to clearly see the blessings of life.  It does take some practice!

Today, I would like to express my thankfulness for my husband.  I have been blessed!  At the (very) young age of 20, I had very little idea of what the next 20 years would be like.  I did have a Negative Nelly here and there telling me to just wait and see...once the honeymoon is over, reality will set  in...well, I really doubt those negative people are reading this today, but I am still over the moon about him.  (So, there!)   (I don't know what reality those negative people were talking about...)

Well, reality has set in...marriage is work, sometimes.  But, when you work, you are rewarded, right?  The bonds are deeper, more meaningful and stronger.  Marriage is a growing process, you have to be willing to go through a few hard times, maybe some painful times.  Isn't that part of growing?  Nobody, including me, likes to deal with the hard things...but again, the rewards are worth what it takes to grow.

So, Gorgeous, if you are reading are still the one.  You make my world go 'round.  You complete me.  I can't live without you.  And I thank God for you.
