One of the projects that I made for the recent County Fair that my last four blog posts have been about is a Mini Album. I was quite pleased with the end results. I went browsing in my list of blogs I visit and found the video for this.
I fell in love with it. Her video is very easy to follow. It just showed how to make it and I would loved to have seen the finished album that she made, but I couldn't find it. So, I went on a journey thru my card stock and designer papers and found some that I liked. What I loved about this was the fact that it just required straight cut pieces and a score board. That's it. Simple and clean, short and sweet, peaches and cream..........oh, sorry I got carried away for a second. hehehe But it is easy for sure. After I got the album base made, that's when the fun stuff starts. Yay!!!!!!
Here it is September 9th, 2016!!! Wow, where did this year go????? I just can't quite figure it out, but.........this year is rolling right along!!!! It's rolling on so fast that September 6th was the 37th anniversary of mine and my husband!!!!! Yes it was!!!!! We are so thankful to God for this milestone. I just hope and pray that we get to celebrate another 37 years together!!!! God is good!!! I don't know where the years have gone though. When we first got married, we were young and active and on the go. 37 years later, for some reason, we're not as young as we once were. I have heard people say, "Well, I still feel young on the inside, I just don't look it on the outside". Now, I can certainly understand that!!!! hahahaha I used to think that everyone but me has changed. Yeah, right!!!! hahahaha Don't think that no more!!!!! But, I still do thank that God is good!!!! Because He is!!!!!!
Ephesians 5:31 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.
For what reason? Paul is talking about marriage. Marriage is the most sacred bond outside of the bonds of the family. Go back and read the preceding verses to this verse. It's not to be taken lightly. And, yes I do believe in the wives submission to a godly husband. A godly husband loves his wife as Christ loves the church. A godly husband has his wife's best interest at heart. Didn't Christ have our best interest at heart? He did!!!! A godly husband WILL have his wife's best interest at heart!
The thing that I really wanted to bring out about this particular verse is this: Only in God's economy does 1+1=1!!!!! Put that down on a math test anywhere in the country and I guarantee you that the teacher will mark it as wrong. But this is what God's economy says. 1+1=1! One husband and one wife makes one unit. I believe the Word of God. I love the way God counts. It still leaves people scratching their heads, but God's Word is forever. Makes no difference whether we believe it or not, it is still true and will forever be true. Thank you Father, for the covenant of marriage, and may my husband and I honor You as he and I honor our covenant marriage. Amen!
Well, I hope and pray y'all seen something here tonight that you liked and if you did, share it with someone. Tell them that the way God counts, 1+1=1, they might scratch their head too and you can tell them what it's about.
As I leave you tonight, I hope and pray that each one of y'all has a blessed night of sweet rest and heavenly dreams. Hope to see you back here real soon. Always remember that God loves you enough to provide a way to have a relationship with Him thru Christ. God loves you and so do I. Hugs and Love, Patty
