Welcome!

How was your weekend? Ours was eventful, in a good way. We had the opportunity to attend the wedding of Jim and Kayla Slice, two of the sweetest and godliest people we know. 

When I attend weddings, my own marriage tends to come to mind—especially during the exchanging of vows. Am I unconditionally loving Brian for better or worse? Am I submitting to him in a way that pleases the Lord? Am I allowing Christ to mold me into the wife Brian needs (not the wife I think he needs)? Am I communicating the deep respect I have for him as his wife and best friend? 

This year, Brian and I will celebrate 24 years of marriage. I don’t want to become complacent or take what we have for granted so although I see no weddings in my near future, I plan to continue asking the questions that matter. 

 

Heavenly Father,
When others see how we treat one another,
how we interact with one another,
how we love one another,
do they see and hear You?

 
 Father, will you steep Your Word deeply into our soul?

“Be completely humble and gentle; Be patient, bearing with one
another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit
through the bond of peace.” – Ephesians 4:2-3
 

Is there one particular word from the above scripture you feel 

led to “sip” on, meditate on, throughout this week?


   

———————————–
I choose the word “every” this week — as in every effort. My lip will bleed from the biting, and misunderstandings are sure to crush at times, but I need to do what it takes to keep the unity of the spirit in all relationships, especially my marriage. 

As we bring our time to a close, is there one tangible way to “pour”
out His truth in response to the word(s) chosen above?

Whether married,
divorced or single, the marriage ceremony is a sacred celebration and
perhaps, the perfect opportunity to reflect on what matters most. 

Thanks for stopping by today at Sharing Life Together…One Sip At A Time. Would
you consider joining in the conversation by leaving your “word” in the comment box? Blessings!
He
does not delight in the strength of the horse; He does not take
pleasure in the legs of a man. The LORD favors those who fear Him, Those
who wait for His lovingkindness. – See more at:

“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made
them male and female,’  and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his
father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become
one flesh’ ?  So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has
joined together, let man not separate.” Matthew 19: 4-6
