Pals

Women are a little bit crazy. Since I am a woman I feel that it is okay for me to say that. I feel sorry for men in general, but more particularly my husband who has to put up with things like me crying during "Racing Stripes" (I don't want to talk about it) or getting offended when he brings me ice cream in the small bowl, because clearly he thinks I'm fat. (Wow, talk about run on!) The point of this post however is not about women, but my sweet husband. He is my rock, and I'm crazy about him. He's both patient and understands and accepts that women are a little nuts-he's perfect! It's been six years (and 5months, 22 days) since we've been married, and we still kinda like each other. Life is good. The "funny" thing is after we got married I was happier than I have ever been in my entire life. It freaked me out the first few years, because I honestly didn't think people were supposed to be so happy. No joke. One day I finally realized that God doesn't want us to be miserable people. What a burden lifted! We've been through a lot together, but he's always been there for me, and the joy has never left.
We got married at 19, and while I don't advocate everyone getting married as teenagers, I also don't believe the whole thing about needing to know who you are before saying "I do." You obviously have to know some things about yourself, but the person I was six years ago and the person I am today are lightyears apart. Instead of doing it alone I have had a buddy alongside me the whole way.

James

Last night James 3 was the chapter-of-the-night for my devotion time, and wow what a chapter it is! Pretty much every single thing in that chapter is something I need to/can apply to my life. However I think verses 13-18, dealing with wisdom, were pretty wonderful. There are a lot of temporal things I'm working toward (aka, baby weight) and there's nothing wrong with that, but what a reminder from James, that what I really need to be working on is things such as the wisdom from God. So, I am looking at myself and seeing where I lack and how I can be a person with a "good life."

James 3:13,17
"Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in humility that comes from wisdom...But the wisdom that comes from Heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. "

The Beginning

My very first blog post! I hesitated to start a blog, because really there are more than enough of them in this world, and I don't have anything especially interesting or profound to add to the world. However, I decided that since I am constantly typing up "notes" for my facebook page and then never posting them, this might work for me. Another thing that nearly stopped me is that you have to come up with a witty name for your blog, and somehow that seems like a pretty big deal to me. You have to think of a catchy slogan for yourself for the world to see, and that's a lot for my little insecure self to handle. So here it is! Nobody will probably ever see it or care, but that is just fine with me. I think I might like this.
