It's Week 9 of Focus on Life with Ms. Sally Russick and the theme is: "Knock, Knock."
This is what I wanted to share with you today... "Our Door."
My husband and I have been married for 4 years and we made our first major move last April 2012. We drove almost 19 hours from state to state, with loads of stuff - clothes and boxes of "my toys."
We have always been around family which was nice especially for me migrating from another country but we had to be on our own. It was all in perfect timing, all according to God's perfect plan!
We stayed with friends for a few months just enough for us to find our own place and here it is... "Our Door."
The process in finding our own place was fun and exciting! We prayed for it and decided on a 2 bedroom apartment which was big enough for us and my loads of crafts and tools. It was fun visiting stores and shopping to find furniture and other techie "needs." I have realized that no matter how long you have been with your husband, you still learn something new about one another... such as in choosing what to buy, where to put the sofa, etc. - you know what I'm talking about. After a few weeks or arranging and rearranging, we were happy to be finally home.
There is a frame hanging by our kitchen that reads:
RECIPE FOR A HAPPY HOME
4 cups of Love
2 cups of Loyalty
3 cups of Forgiveness
1 cup of Friendship
5 spoons of Hope
2 spoons of Tenderness
4 quarts of Faith
1 barrel of Laughter
To this, I add: A load of God's grace and mercy. It is what binds us together as husband and wife.
Thanks for reading this far. Off to the other blogs you go, my friend!
