Love, Love, Love

February is love, love, love month for hubby and me.   This month, we will be celebrating our 12th  wedding anniversary.  Yay! The Lord has made these twelve years, the best years of my life ... and I believe that the "best of the best" is yet to come.

Love this quote by John Piper:

can't be equated with any action.
Love is the overflow of joy - in God.
It is not duty for duty's sake
or right for right's sake.
It is not a resolute abandoning
of one's own good with a view
solely to the good of the other person.
It is first a  deeply satisfying                           
experience of the fullness 
of God's grace, and then a
doubly satisfying experience
of sharing that grace with
another person."

12 years ... without God's love, Alvin and I wouldn't be able to love each other unconditionally.  Without God's love, we cannot forgive and overlook irritations.  We are not a perfect couple but our marriage gives us a "deeply satisfying experience" which is but an "extension of our joy in God".  Whenever we serve God together, we feel the fullness of this joy.   What greater intimacy is there when even our soul and spirit unite?

12 years and counting ... We are looking forward to more wonderful years together.  I know there will be trials and tests but there will also be victories. The Lord is faithful and because He is, we can rest in His love ... together.
