"Your life with Andrew sounds so cute I could tie a bow around it. You guys sound so happy and it sounds like you take time out to have fun – that’s good! I am SO HAPPY for you two!! It makes me smile reading all about your life I can just picture it – I’m glad you decided to change your mind [about a mission]and marry Andrew!"
This excerpt comes from an old e-mail I received from an old friend. I hadn't been trying to paint my life to sound overly sunny and rose-colored. We were just catching up on what the other has been up to lately. I just listed the basic facts.
But I think about her statement a lot...that image of tying a bow around my life with Andrew. We really do have a blessed life. And I bet you do too.
It's just that sometimes, I forget...or get distracted by what's difficult, so that I can't see what's good. I need to stop existing on survival mode and really enjoy these good times.
- Sickeningly in love with my man
- The good news of the Gospel
- Jobs with regular paychecks
- Working vehicles
- Our cozy house
- Money to spend on luxuries like date nights
- Church service
- Freedom and peace
Yep. Cute enough to tie a bow around...top with a cherry, and eat with a spoon!
