Littlest one was not being cooperative for a photo moment this morning; so I decided to throw in one of my latest favorite pictures of him. He has most definitely been a part of the process too! He is carrying the basket around right now pulling out names and saying, "Yeah!" for each one.
Although all of you could not win the book; I am and will continue to pray daily for your marriages through Valentines Day and as you come to mind after that time frame. Today I am praying specifically for woundings of the heart to be healed as only God can do. Some of you have large seeping wounds right now. Others may have small scratches that just haven't healed and are possibly on the verge of infection. Unnoticed daily, but occasionally "give you trouble" as my husband's Bubbi used to say. Here are a few of the Scriptures the Lord has led me to today as I pray for each of your marriages: (bolding emphasis mine)
Psalm 103 (NIV)
1 Praise the LORD, O my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits-
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
John 10: 10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (NKJ)
Jeremiah 17:14 Heal me, O LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise. (NIV)
Standing with you as you pursue your marriages!
