My Mother's Day

When Dustie & I were dating, he had an "inkling" that we were supposed to get married. He wondered & over-thought about it, & one night he prayed that God would let him know if I was his future wife. Directly after, D picked up his Bible for his quiet time & that day's passage was Proverbs 31. He immediately knew that God's plan was for us to be together.

He didn't tell me about that until later on in our relationship, but when he did I was first, excited that he finally figured out that we were going to one day be husband & wife; (I knew before we started dating-see "So Romantical" post.) second, I was overwhelmed because I knew I had a LOT of work to do to become that Proverbs 31 "Wife of Noble Character."

Almost 9 years, a Hootie James, & 2 Little Dusties later, I am still on that sanctifying journey. I want D to have confidence in me. I want to make him better. I want my mouth to be filled with wisdom & loving instruction. I want it to be evident that I fear the Lord. 

On this Mother's Day I am entirely grateful for my two little boys who call me Mommy & my Husband for trusting the Lord & leading me in this journey.
