Can I Just Say Something?

I want to take a minute or two to share something that is on my heart.

I don't have all the answers.

I haven't figured it all out.

I make mistakes and I am not perfect.

I do believe that my marriage is being blessed and is blossoming, because of God's work in my heart, my husband's heart and our lives.  This is not something I could have done on my own.  It is only by God's grace that I have this story to tell.
But, I don't think that my marriage is superior to anyone else's.

I screw up every day, and I don't always speak in love to my husband.  Oftentimes, it is quite the opposite.

My level of sarcasm has not come down a notch and it is still an area (especially when I am angry with my spouse) that I struggle in.  One of the many areas...

Because God has done a miracle in my heart and my marriage does not make me better than anyone else and I never want to give that impression.  I don't want anyone to think that because I chose to fight for my marriage that I am sitting in judgment of marriages that don't last.  I have a heart for marriages and I want to see them succeed.  I want to see them thrive.  I want to see broken hearts healed.  I acknowledge that no marriage is the same and no two people are the same, so I have no expectations for anyone reading this to live their life in the exact manner that I live mine.

The purpose of this blog is simply to share how God took something that was broken beyond repair and then fixed it anyway.  No.  He didn't just fix it.  He enhanced it, and this blog is the evidence of God's work in my life, through words.  It is my goal to provide encouragement, support, and hope for anyone out there who may be going through what I have been through.  I've come out on the other side a changed woman.




Knowing that I am "worth it" after 33 years of believing that I wasn't.

That is all I want to share through this blog.  I'm not an expert.  I'm a sinner, who was lost but is now home.  And I believe that God wants to use my story to bring hope to others.  My desires are sincere and I pray that anyone reading these words will see my heart, God's truth, and nothing more.
