Coffee Counselor

These last few days have been some of the most difficult and trying this house has experienced in quite some time. Or more realistically, in all time.

The Lord has been working in my husband's life and mine as well. We are starting to see how what we thought would be a test of faith, was nothing compared to the real deal. We have struggled, we have prayed, we have been left wondering, and we are waiting. Without going into too much detail, our family is waiting on the Lord to do something big. We are all healthy and happy, in fact, despite what would tear some marriages apart, my husband and I have 'circled the wagons' on our homestead. We are fervently praying and spending time talking things out. We are being patient on the Lord and kind to each other, and I must say, that no matter what happens, I am beyond thankful for my husband.

 He is a man who says little and loves much.

 He is harder on himself than anyone else is.

 He is patient and gentle, strong and gracious.

In the mornings, we share a few cups of coffee together, and in that time, we are able to bring our marriage back to center. We focus on God and we eager await the future. There is a greater lesson in all of this, and lucky for us, our faith has grown tenfold.

And that is far better than any 401K.
