Dare to answer the commission

I have a confession.
I am terrified of witnessing.
I truly want to reach out to my neighbors, co-workers, friends, extended family, etc with the words of truth but I am so afraid.
Afraid of floundering and stammering

Afraid of mixing up my verse references/saying something that
 is not biblically sound

but ultimately…

Afraid of being mocked and rejection of God’s word


So the sermon passage on Sunday kind of hit me squarely in the face

Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison— that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak.
Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
Colossians 4: 2 – 5

Random - I got love on my mind

Just wanted to share one of my fave songs. I think I will prolly listen to this song 5 times today.
Remind the ones you love that you love them. Don't just think it, SAY IT!!!

I'm in love with a wonderful guy :)

Giving Thanks

“Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.” – Jim Rohn
How true! Seriously it feels like I closed my eyes and suddenly May is almost over…and I haven’t written anything in almost three weeks!! I wish I could say that time was flying because I was having fun. It is more like the busyness of work,  throw in learning this wife-y role (read: trying to make quick but healthy foods and switching them up so life doesn’t become boring but running out of ideas) plus throw in this online course I am taking…aah!

What a life! But I wouldn’t trade it for anything J
This past weekend was very nice. MrH had wanted us to have a sunset picnic on the beach the prior weekend but we had a storm come through so we did that this weekend. It is funny because we live very close to the beach but only go when family come into town or if friends decide to have a BBQ there. The day had been a scorcher but the evening was nice and humidity was low making it the perfect evening

our lovely picnic ensemble

this was cool - a ship right in the middle of the sun

Our Weekend...nine months!

Our nine month anniversary was this past Saturday so we celebrated in style: washed the outside windows, got my hair did while MrH mowed the lawn, went grocery shopping and finally ate pizza while watching a movie.
Ok so maybe you may not think that it was terribly romantic but we had a great time just relaxing and snugging together after a long busy day. After all, that is what it is about  - being together!

I can't believe how fast time is going though! I feel like it was just yesterday I getting ready be united with the man I love. Yet, at the same time, it feels like we have always been together...does that make sense? I can't really imagine life without the wonderful blessing known as my husband.
