Happy thought

Thankfully, my coffee time with God this morning wasn't just ouchy convicting stuff. There was a neat little morsel God showed me. I am writing two posts this morning as these two thoughts are kind of at opposite ends of the spectrum. God showed me, in His Word, the miracle that He is bringing about in me. I hadn't been able to really put words to it, but I discovered that God already had (and thanks to the Amplified Bible for really hitting the point home for me)

1 Peter 3:2:2 When they observe the pure and modest way in which you conduct yourselves, together with your reverence [for your husband; you are to feel for him all that reverence includes: to respect, defer to, revere him--to honor, esteem, appreciate, prize, and, in the human sense, to adore him, that is, to admire, praise, be devoted to, deeply love, and enjoy your husband].

Now, this does not mean I'm there yet, y'all know I'm still a work in progress, but this IS what I feel inside now for my actions are just slower to catch up with my heart. :) But I AM working on it!!

This is your friend Joan back in New England (remember me from Hearts a little while back?). I wanted to let you know that you are always blessing me so much with what you write here in your blog. I'm keeping you and your family in my prayers. Much Love in Christ!
