One night during dinner, Dave & I talked about how God might be using this time to prepare us for a future trial to come. Knowing full well there will be MORE! Guarantee!
We know that ....
#1 Our marriage is withstanding a very difficult trial. It has actually strengthened our commitment.
#2 Not knowing our future, helps us to continue to capture the everyday moments as a blessing in our family. Even taking a breath. I have always loved being at home with the boys. Today though it is even more evident of that love.
#3 Prayer is more vital & real than ever before.
#4 Happiness is NOT the same as joy.
#5 Being thankful for the time we have had together as a couple & family. Also thankful that God has allowed to show me (Kate) that my time is limited. I truly never have dwelled on my demise. We all die at some time, yet I just thought "OK". As stated in a prior blog, I am not worried or fearful of death for I am confirmed in knowing I will be in heaven. It is leaving the boys here that I do NOT like. I know that life on earth is temporary.
I am all too comfortable here on earth. I love my life. I love my sons. I love my husband. I love it all. I love my friends. I love to socialize. I love to plan an event. I love to talk. : ) (all the bloggers laugh and say that is so right about the talking part)
thankful for dates with my spouse, lover, friend - kate
