It's funny to think back to life before marriage and babies and review whatever expectations I had going into either one of those life changing events. I thought marriage would be a walk in the park! I was head over heals for Kaleb and thought that alone would be enough to keep up a good marriage (how dumb was I?). I don't think I ever fully sat down and thought through my role as a wife and I really didn't think through the things that would make me a good wife for Kaleb. I loved him, he loved me, we got married.
God really uses your kids to grow and change you. I really love how He uses them to grow me daily. When I'm praying and asking God for strength and peace moment by moment, He really takes care of me. I cannot love my kids, keep my patience, and be of encouragement without the Lord. I really want my kids to experience the love of Christ through me daily and to know that He is who I rely on to keep my cool and to teach them right from wrong, praying out loud so that they know it's a relationship and to know that they can and should go to Him for everything! He puts our food on the table, the roof over our head, and provides us with all of the other amazing stuff He's constantly blessing us with. He is worthy to be praised that's for sure. I'm really reminded of how blessed we are when I look at my boys, knowing that they're healthy and growing and really just basking in the love that Christ gives me for them, I get to enjoy that! There is nothing sweeter!
I pray that God continues to grown and change me, I don't want to be the same tomorrow that I am today. I'm a sinner in need of a Saviour and He is what is sweet in this life. I love the life that God has blessed me with, a loving, God honoring husband and two precious little boys! Sheesh.....that's ridiculous. Linking up with CaseyLeigh
