6 months left :)

In exactly 6 months I will be a WIFE! Oh my goodness I'm so excited! I can't believe how quickly the time has flown by! I feel like Kyle has been a part of my life forever, but at the same time it seems like we just started dating yesterday.  I am so blessed!

I am so thankful to have a fiancée who cares more about our marriage than a wedding.  We have spent more time reading and talking about our future marriage than the actual wedding.  This has made me even more excited to get married.  A wedding lasts one day, but a marriage lasts a lifetime.  I am also so thankful that he is willing to read all of these books with me! Kyle has been so patient with me and has helped me become a better person and therefore a stronger couple.  I know we will make it through anything together!! God's love for us is overflowing and we can feel it in our lives! I can't wait to see what the future holds for us!!!!

God's Grace

"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
his mercies never come to an end;
great is your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22-23

While driving to work at 5:45 Monday morning I was awe struck by the power of our God.  The sunrise seems to remind me daily of the great love he has for us! Each time I glanced at that amazingly pink and blue sky I kept hearing this Bible verse over and over in my head.  His mercies are new every morning.  What a humbling thought that is! Who are we that God would choose to love us each day and give us a second chance daily?? Our God is wonderful.

I've been struggling lately with grace.  I can't seem to wrap my mind around something as wonderful as God's grace.  I have been given so much over the last few years that I feel guilty.  I have been blessed with the most amazing fiancée in the world. If I could have created the perfect man Kyle would have exceeded all of my expectations.  He is more than I deserve and I am eternally grateful that we were brought together.  I know God has amazing plans for us as a couple! Besides my wonderful Kyle I have an amazing family and a career that I adore! I stand in awe with all God has blessed me with lately.

My only hope is that every sunrise is as beautiful as they have been this week.  They not only remind me of the amazing grace we have been given, but they allow me to slow down, if only for a moment, and see the beauty of God's creations on Earth.
