I’m sorry I didn’t post on Thursday. I had planned out a Thanksgiving post and everything, but when the actual holiday came all I wanted to do was relax. Justin was busy with work and, I don’t know, I guess I just didn’t want to do it. I realize now that I could have written the post on Wednesday and told it to post on Thursday. All well, live and learn. I’m suspending my study on love to ask these…

Love Does Not Envy

Love Does Not Envy

Today’s post is a continuation of my previous series on love, based off 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.  Today is about how love does not envy. Here are the Scriptures again, in case you need a refresher. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices…

Love is Kind

Love is Kind

I think all of us want to think of ourselves as kind people. I love animals and I would never hurt one – that makes me kind, right? I feel bad for people (empathize or sympathize) when I see someone hurting, someone homeless, someone hungry. It hurts my heart to hear that anyone is in pain, anyone sick. I want to feed all the people, help all the animals, give all the children loving parents, etc. That’s all great. I’m…

The Power of Love

The Power of Love

The Power of Love Long before I got married, I have loved 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. For those of you who may not remember it entirely, here it is from the ESV: 4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;[a] 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never ends. I don’t know…

Marriage is Challenging: Part Two

Marriage is Challenging: Part Two

Welcome back everyone, to week two of my blog! Thank you so much for the comments I’ve received so far. I’d love to hear from more of you! But for now, on with the tale of my husband and I, and where we are today. After my husband lost his job, we tried starting an e-commerce store. It didn’t work out, but that was my fault. He wanted me to follow the guidelines of other successful stores, but I was…

Marriage is Challenging: Part One

Marriage is Challenging: Part One

Any marriage is hard. Growing up, we all have some view on marriage. If your parents had a bad marriage (got divorced, never were married, maybe a spouse left) then you probably had a negative outlook on marriage. If your parents had a good marriage, you probably figured you’d have one too. We see what we’re used to seeing. From the time I was ten, I wanted to be married. My dream in life was to be a godly wife,…
