Snapshots of Thanksgiving- Day 10

on November 10, 2012

Day 10:

20121110-201509.jpg
This evening I watched a friend from church start her new life as a wife. Her grandfather (a missionary to Thailand for many years) married them. Her twin brother (a talented trumpet player) played her processional. Her mother (a florist) decorated the church. It was gorgeous with all the shades of Fall and the couple looked deliriously happy.

I cried, but that isn’t surprising. I can get misty eyed during cartoon movies…

I am so thankful for new life.

The journey of marriage is most definitely the start of an adventure and a new life. A couple leaves their parents and single ways to become united as husband and wife. They have to submit to one another and learn to live with another person.

Parenthood comes along and brings with it a literal new life and the glorious, tedious new life of a mom or dad. In many ways a parent dies to their old nature and selfish habits (like peeing alone) to embrace the demands of children. It is humbling and at times painful, but beautiful.

I am most thankful for new life in Christ. I can’t imagine my life as a wife and mother without His strength and comfort.

Ok, I am getting misty again… Have a great night!
