ATTN: Newlyweds!

Since I have lots of friends that are just married or getting married, I thought I would share this little gem I stumbled upon. HOW DOES SHE is one of my new favorite sites. They feature great ideas of how to creatively do lots of things! From chore sheets for your kiddos (which I know we're all years away from) to how to spoil your husband ;) Hope you glean as much as I have! ENJOY!

1 John 4:19

 13(AA) By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. 14And(AB) we have seen and testify that(AC) the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of(AD) the world. 15(AE) Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16So(AF) we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us.(AG) God is love, and(AH) whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. 17By this(AI) is love perfected with us, so that(AJ) we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because(AK) as he is so also are we in this world. 18There is no fear in love, but(AL) perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not(AM) been perfected in love. 19(AN) We love because he first loved us. 20(AO) If anyone says, "I love God," and(AP) hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot[a] love God(AQ) whom he has not seen. 21And(AR) this commandment we have from him:(AS) whoever loves God must also love his brother.

It is good, in this time of being engaged, to be excited about what the future holds; being excited about what to expect in the future and to prepare mentally and spiritually for this new life you will live. However, I find it equally difficult to wait patiently for the things to come. To know that in less than three months I will be married doesn't change that right now I live almost exactly like I did 5 years ago. Maybe it can be best described by being stuck in a time warp. Some sick place between what was and what could be. For now...for now I will wait to see what the future holds. Waiting patiently however, will be only by divine intervention!
