On this first day…

On this first day of February, I start anew. I keep pressing on with a pleading prayer that I will never be the same person tomorrow that I was today. Always plodding onward, soaking myself in grace so that it drips off – just enough for pastor husband and my 3 precious little ones to splash in  it as well. Splash in grace…we all need that.

So today I walk forward in love.  I feel sin’s tension and resolve not to let it strangle me. I walk forward into 30 days of loving my husband. O how I love him so – the man plucked out for me and me for him. A friend to walk with, a companion to dance with to life’s beat. The one who knows sin’s stain on me and loves me anyway.
