40 Years and Filling in the Blanks

We were babies. Some thought we would not make it, yet here we are 40 years later.

We have been looking through pictures from years gone by and each one of us remembering things the other did not.

We fill in the blanks for one another. That is what marriage is…not perfect, not easy, not always fun and a lot of work.

But, you fill in the blanks for each other. Our faith has allowed us to love each other when we really did not like each other.

Our faith has gotten us through the good, bad and the ugly.

Our faith helps us fill in the blanks.

We are grateful for each other and appreciate each other more and more every day.

When we got in the jeep this afternoon, “by chance” a song by the BeeGees was on…

“How Deep is Your Love” was playing. Yes, we both got tears in our eyes and went back to those days we first fell in love.

We still love each other. A lot. More than we ever thought possible.

We don’t always agree, and we bicker still…but he takes care of me when I am down(which has been a lot lately) and I encourage him.

We fill in the blanks for one another, and hopefully, God willing…we will do so for another 40 or so years.40 Years!

Encouraging Fiction

The reading binge continues…I have an insatiable appetite right now for encouraging fiction, and Karen Kingsbury is meeting that need.

I completed the series, with the first, Angels Walking- A Novel .  A beautiful novel with Tyler, a baseball player, Sami, a one time girlfriend and Virginia, a precious resident at an assisted living facility.

Karen weaves the story of love, redemption, grace and forgiveness in such an beautiful way.  We are always entertaining “angels unaware”, and this author gives us a glimpse of what that looks like.

The second book of the trilogy, Chasing Sunsets, Karen Kingsbury continues with the expansion of the story of Marcus and Mary Catherine.  Both of these characters are friends of Tyler and Sami.  The angels are always on mission, and this book continues to show us the lives that the angels are needing to protect.

The third and final book, Brush of Wings, Karen continues to share the stories of each of the couples.  We also meet a young woman, Lexy, who is involved in a gang lifestyle that threatens her life, and the future that the Father has the angels protecting.

I love the way Karen allows us to peek behind the curtain at the angels. Ember, Beck, Jag and Aspyn, the angels throughout the series and in this third book,

work together on this very important mission.

Karen always makes books easy to read and hard to put down.  These three were no exceptions.

I just finished Oceans Apart…paperback   or Oceans Apart- Kindle  so I will talk about it next time.

Until then, pardon me while I start another KK book!
