n; the state of being a married couple voluntarily joined for life

Its amazing what God has been showing me over the last week... how much I have matured and realized that God is there. I just finished watching "A Vow to Cheris" which I posted a link for a few days ago. In today's world marriage is so ... watered down. The dictionary description I posted continued on to say "or until divorce" ... it's a shame that our world has come to that. In my eyes... marriage is forever. It IS a voluntary commitment... but a final commitment. God reminded me tonight of what my ultimate goal in life has always been (besides serving Him). I want to be the best husband and best father that I can be. A sense of family has always been in my heart. When I find the right goal, whoever that may be, I will love her forever. It will never end. My life will be commited to being with her. Only death will cause our parting.

Suddenly the stress from yesterday doesnt much matter. I had car troubles but its not a big deal. God got me through it. God was right there with me... as He was there with me skiing today. I could have been frustrated that my ankle was hurting in my boot; that I may have to buy new boots.... but why? God was right there with me. Maybe I couldnt spend more than an hour skiing today... but because of it I got to come home and spend time with family. We dont understand why things happen. All we can do is trust God; even when we dont have answers.

God is going to use me in great ways... everyone has been telling me that but I have so blatantly ignored that. I am so thankful for the things God has done in my life. I am so thankful for the people He has surrounded me with. Not many people can say that they have a Christian boss, a Christian doctor, best friends that our Christians. Not all people can say they were raised in a Christian family. Many people cant say they own a Bible... many people dont have a friend like Tiff caring for them. Many people dont have God. I do. I can say I do to that... the same way I will say I do on my wedding day. The same way that my wife will have my commitment, God has my commitment now.

God Bless everyone -- and thank you so much for your prayers.
