It’s that time a week again when the Thankful Thursday post is up and there’s reflection on gratitude…. I’m so thankful for this life I get to live. The ups and the downs. The prayers people have petitioned God for me. The prayers I’ve gotten to have with God. I’m thankful for prayer. I’m thankful that the God of the Universe would spend time with me. That I matter. That we all matter to Him.
I’m thankful for my husband and being on this journey with him. Thinking back over the past 18+ years reminds me how when we were working as a team we would lift each other up when the other was down. Then there have been times over the years at different times one or the other of us were being selfish and not helping the other up. These were times when our marriage was at the verge of death. I’m thankful for God for saving our marriage in the good and bad times. All this reminds me of these verses. All this reminds me of how love is more of a choice a lot of times than a feeling… I’m glad that we continue to love each other over the long haul. Marriage isn’t easy but it is worth the effort. Of that I’m truly thankful.
Ephesians 4:9 Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
