2015 will soon be a memory, and 2016 will roll in like a freight train ready to unload on us all the events God has planned.
We are gearing up here at The Romantic Vineyard to spend more time posting and providing quality material to help your marriage thrive in the coming year. We pray you’ll find it helpful and encouraging.
But today…today we’re traveling home from a week away to see our kids and grandkids for Christmas. It’s always an emotional roller coaster for me–high high’s knowing we get to be together, and low low’s when the time comes to say goodbye. But God is helping me each time to trust Him more even though His ways are not my ways, I know confidently that His ways are good.
And I’m here to remind you of this truth as well. Whenever we face seasons we don’t like it’s far too easy to slip into the grumbling and complaining mode. We must fight this temptation and see it for what it is–charging God with messing up our plans. Of course, most of us would never say this, but if we break it down that’s really all grumbling is. And God takes it very seriously. Just look at what happened when the Israelites did it?
This morning I received an article by Breakpoint about the myth of Soul Mates.We encourage you to read it. It’s an important Truth to realize in order for marriages to last a lifetime.
We pray you’ll have a safe and romantic New Year’s celebration. Look for ways to surprise your spouse and make them smile. 😊
Hi Debi! Our kids all came to visit us this year (bringing THEIR kids with them)… so our house was filled to overflowing with “the crazy”. But now we’re all back to the quiet again. I’m looking forward to the new postings from TRV this year. Blessings to you and Tom!
Jason, That quiet can be deafening can’t it? So glad you were able to be together. Blessings to you and Tiffany in 2016.
