I'm not gone..

Oh blog. I miss you so. I have neglected you in a way that no blogger ever should. It's not because this is what I wanted. I didn't want to go a month and a half without writing a blog. but.. that's what happens when you have life. Sometimes it just gets in the way of the simpler things. Like sitting around with your hubby listening to old country music. Which is what I'm doing now. He's playing chess. He's such a handsome, romantic sexy chess nerd. :) I don't really think he's a nerd though. I can't lie. I love him so much. Sometimes I'm not a great wifey, but he always thinks I am. I think he's the best husband in the world. I don't know if you know this; but he works so hard! He works a full time Job! Like physical labor job. and he goes to school Full time-not wimpy school. hard school. and he writes like 20 page papers, and does good in class, and is Smart! and He teaches Sunday School. and helps me with my ministry too! And you know what else... it doesn't matter how busy he is, he still makes time to be sweet to me, and to kiss me like a million times before he goes out the door because I like won't let him leave with out doing it. And he spends time with me, just me, and he likes it! I am so the luckiest girl on earth.

We recently went on a two week road trip back and forth between Utah and San Diego, I didn't get tired of him the whole time! I don't get sick of spending time with him. It's so much better when he's here. Lucky me that I get to spend the rest of my life with him. Or i should say Blessed me! I am so blessed. I do not deserve the gift that I have been given.

And that's what makes God so great! He turns ashes to beauty. I've made the wrong decisions time after time, I've lost sight of Jesus, I've tried to ignore him, but He pursues me. He redeems me. He has poured out grace after grace. Redemption after redemption. Beauty after beauty. He continually opens my eyes to how great he is and how much he loves me. I don't understand how He would suffer so much for me, just to love me. He doesn't get sick of spending time with me. He doesn't get annoyed when I act dumb, he forgives me for my mistakes and failures, and he makes me new. He looks at me and sees a forgiven beauty. He is so faithful! so amazing. He has blessed me with a husband who loves me so much, and it helps me to understand how he loves me. and to love him more. Jesus, thanks for choosing me as your bride, thanks for seeing me as your chosen one and not as the adulterous woman i deserve to be seen as. You alone are God. You alone are loving. You alone are grace poured out!
