Soft Tissues, Honey Tea & a Giveaway

God created man and woman to be together.  Our bodies are made for each other. Our natures and temperaments provide balance, enabling us to more effectively complete the tasks at hand.  Our oneness can produce children, and our teamwork can best raise them to health and maturity.  Where one is weak the other is strong. When one needs building up, the other is equipped to enhance and encourage. We multiply one another's joys and divide one another's sorrow.  We are meant for each other.  Husband and wife need each other.  Period.  To read more, join me at Woman to Woman for Marriage Monday.

Continuing to praise God for the ways He is blessing me in 2012:

656. Encouragement from family & friends through a difficult time.

657. The beautiful color of changing leaves.

658. Wind blowing through open windows.

659. The sound of leaves racing across the ground.

670. Pumpkin spice french toast.

671. Honey hot tea in the morning to sooth a sore throat.

672. Soft tissues for sick noses.

673. My husband recovering {almost 100%} from his back injury.

674. Seeing how excited my daughter gets when her doll catalog/magazine comes in the mail.

675. My son's excitement over getting a 100% on his test.  {He screamed out the window, "World, I passed it!}

676. Knowing that even though God has moved us on, it doesn't have to mean good-bye.

677. New ministry opportunities.

678. The peace that following God's will brings.

679. A family lunch and seeing my grandma, it has been too long.

680. A restful evening after a week of being sick.

681. Playing Uno with the kids.

682. Time alone with my Father in the stillness of the morning.

Comment below with five things you are praising God for today.
