A Weekend to Remember

Sometimes I look back at my posts and I think "boy, I talk a lot about God". I mean I think I've decided this blog is for me, not necessarily the reader. Although, I would like the reader to get something out of what I wrote. I just can't help it. God changed my life! Can you liken it to a near death experience? Or nearly losing someone you love? You would certainly appreciate life and those you love more intentionally after almost losing them, right? God turned my life around. He saved me from a mediocre life and now I can't think of anything I would rather do then thank Him for what He has done and share His amazing love and power with others.

Adam and I went away this weekend to Family Life's "Weekend to Remember". It is a marriage conference designed to encourage, renew, and save marriages. Some couples attend because their marriage is heading for divorce. Some couples attend because they want to learn and grow in their marriage. Some couples just need some reenergizing. Some couples just need to remember why they got married in the first place. There were couples there that had been married almost 50 years and couples that had only been married 3 months (even some pre-married couples). Talk about starting your marriage on the right foot! It was a great weekend and we are glad we went! Just an aside, on date night we ate at a yummy restaurant in Delaware Water Gap, PA called Antelao. A very quaint, intimate setting and delicious food. Highly recommend if you are ever up in that area!

"Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church... Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her...In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church." (EPHESIANS 5:22, 23, 25, 28, 29)
