KeriMae sent me this beautiful journal to be a companion to my "Created To Be His Help Meet" book. I placed it on my bed this morning, and begin to flip through the pages. I read the words that continue to inspire me.
About a year ago, a friend of mine (Cheryl) purchased the book "Created To Be His Help Meet" for me. To be honest, I figured that it would be a great "christian" book, but it would be full of things that I would have to weed out. Sometimes those books are just too exhausting for me. However, this book wasn't like that all. It was full of the King James Version verses, and brimming with the wisdom that I had been brought up to believe about woman and man. It brought tears to my eyes many times, and made me truly look at myself again and again.
Now I shared alot of the wisdom with my husband, and this may have been my downfall. For Satan tried me in this. I felt that as I would share the ideas and things I felt I needed to improve on with my Den the more I felt I was failing, and the more I feared he felt the same. So this time I will be a little more discreet. Not to say that sharing these beautiful things with your husband is a bad idea, it's just that for me, my pride got in the way. I know that is something I need to work on too. Believe me, I have a lot of things I would like to work on, pride is one of many.
Anyway, Den left this morning only to return minutes later with a package in his hand. In this package was the journal (pictured above). He smiled warmly, as did I, when the package was unveiled. I have been working on my heart and all that I want to be, and Den knows this about me. I kissed him as he left for work knowing that my work was just beginning too (In more ways than one.)
So I hope that as I begin down this path again, that you will appreciate the small transformations that I am going to undergo.
