Marriage Challenge

We actually wrote our own marriage vows. Mine was modeled after the 1 Corinthians Love chapter. Genius' was kind of copied off mine, he is not much of a writer. The 2nd picture I put up here is of our Wyoming reception a couple weeks after our Ca wedding. :) I'm going to re-read 1 Corinthians 13 in the light of my marriage and the effort I'm putting in and see if I am loving my husband the way I vowed to. I encourage every one to read that chapter and reflect on it too. :) God bless your weekend!

And here is another few pics I found of our dating days:
haha, this is a terrible pic of me, but notice my shirt, LOL, how cute! I completely forgot about that shirt until now.

This seems interesting, I'm going to try and do it

Push Button to see what I'm interested in. It's a summer challenge to Complete your Husbands. The first 2 weeks have already been blogged about, these were the topics:

June 7 - announce to your readers you are participating by posting the button on your site and leaving your link below. Optional: Embed the HTML from this video in your blog post!

June 14 – Post Pictures from your dating days (or tell us all about it!). Think about one thing you used to do or have as a couple that you have lost in the shuffle of life. How can you regain it?

1st, I'm announcing to you that I'm doing this and
2nd, On to the dating days pics:

So these are the only pics I could find on my computer. I know, not that great, I'll have to scan some in when I get the chance. Genius and I used to read the Bible a lot together and listen to music and worship the Lord singing together. I would LOVE to do that again with him.

This is what Courtney from Women Living Well says for this week:

Consider: How much time do you spend on a daily/weekly basis cultivating your marriage now? In what ways can you regain some of what has been lost in the daily shuffle of life?
Purpose this week to do something that reminds your husband of the youthful wife you once were - maybe it's wearing something you know he loves on you (remember we dressed to please back in those dating days!), go somewhere you both used to enjoy going together - alone!, look at photos together of the "good ol'days", watch a favorite movie, or just simply sit together talking, listening, dreaming, holding hands, rubbing his back, and simply paying attention to the amazing husband of your youth! Treasure him this week!

I think a nice, long back rub is on schedule for this week!

V-value A cool devotion today

Morning and Evening
Charles H. Spurgeon

Morning Reading
The Lord hath done great things for us, whereof we are glad.
Some Christians are sadly prone to look on the dark side of everything, and to dwell more upon what they have gone through than upon what God has done for them. Ask for their impression of the Christian life, and they will describe their continual conflicts, their deep afflictions, their sad adversities, and the sinfulness of their hearts, yet with scarcely any allusion to the mercy and help which God has vouchsafed them. But a Christian whose soul is in a healthy state, will come forward joyously, and say, "I will speak, not about myself, but to the honour of my God. He hath brought me up out of an horrible pit, and out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings: and He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God. The Lord hath done great things for me, whereof I am glad." Such an abstract of experience as this is the very best that any child of God can present. It is true that we endure trials, but it is just as true that we are delivered out of them. It is true that we have our corruptions, and mournfully do we know this, but it is quite as true that we have an all-sufficient Saviour, who overcomes these corruptions, and delivers us from their dominion. In looking back, it would be wrong to deny that we have been in the Slough of Despond, and have crept along the Valley of Humiliation, but it would be equally wicked to forget that we have been through them safely and profitably; we have not remained in them, thanks to our Almighty Helper and Leader, who has brought us "out into a wealthy place." The deeper our troubles, the louder our thanks to God, who has led us through all, and preserved us until now. Our griefs cannot mar the melody of our praise, we reckon them to be the bass part of our life's song, "He hath done great things for us, whereof we are glad."

This was in my e-mail, I get them every day, my husband read it before work and as he kissed me goodbye he told me about it and said it's a must read. I read it and enjoyed it so much I'm putting it up on here. Blessings!

My First "real" couponing experience

It was rough...let me tell ya, but I did get these items free or close to free. :)

Snakes and Roses

The kids named him Slider, since he eats slugs and spiders. We found him in our backyard, just a little garter, I think. The roses were transplanted and didn't look like they would make it, but they are perking back up and even blooming...yay!
