Life is Grace

Seeking the Blessings in the Chaos

I think the nasty weather we’ve been having yesterday and today is my fault. It’s God telling me to quit complaining about rain on my wedding day three years ago (yesterday). I have to admit, I’m actually nostalgic for the rain; at least it was warm! And of course, it was a lovely day all the way around despite the rain–I was going through our wedding pics the other day, and re-lived the whole incredible day. (We were hoping to buy a printer/scanner with the anniversary money from my mom but, of course, we couldn’t find one for $50. We’ll probably bite the bullet and get the $80 one–I mean, who needs groceries?!–and if/when we do, I’ll post some of our pictures.)

Because of the weather, we didn’t do very much; we just went to Grandma’s for a yummy and warming dinner. After George went to bed I sat up and cried for a long time. If someone had asked me on our wedding day if we’d be childless three years into our marriage, I would have said NO WAY. I would have been wrong, obviously. However, I’d marry him all over again in a flash. I still can’t believe I found a thoughful, caring, talented and funny guy like George to share my life with, I really can’t. Snuggling together in bed yesterday morning with our coffee, the newspaper, and Fiona, I felt a wave of pure contentment wash over me, and gave thanks. (There are many moments like that. I just always seem to forget to write about them!!!)

And I’ve come to realize something about love: Love doesn’t come to us because we deserve it, because I’ve never done anything to deserve the kind of love I have with George. Love comes to us just because we are, not because of what we do. It’s pure grace.

I'd love to know what you think, please feel free to comment.
