Well where do I begin. We have now survived the past 12 days with out Mary. Let me tell you it is not as easy as you may think. I desperately miss my wonderful wife and can’t tell you all how blessed I am to have such a Godly woman. During this season apart my heart is longing for her fellowship, part of me is missing.

I know some of you are saying why is he writing this for all to see. The bible is very clear that he who finds a wife finds a good thing, and I want to praise God for giving me Mary. When we trust Him with all we have He can take care of what we need. And He knew I needed Mary. This has definitely been a season to trust God, as you know since January we have been on a journey through some difficult times and situations but through it all God has proven himself so faithful and kept His word. So for another 10 days my ability to trust him is being tested, that is when Mary gets home. Hebrews 4:16 tells us that as we come to the throne of grace that we will find help in our time of need. For those of you reading that my be experiencing hardship know that as we abandon our lives to Jesus and His kingdom there is grace for you. He can be trusted, but it is often us who hold back our lives and don’t trust Him to work out the details. I could be caught up on the fact that we have had to suffer some difficult times this year, but the truth is that through all we have been through He has been there with us. God is good and no trial or tribulation can change that.
