to journey with one's best friend

Wednesday, August 22

 it is so easy to become discontent
it's like one minute we're resting peace
and the next these big hazel eyes take their focus off the eternal
and onto the "could haves" 

and tonight amidst all the blessing
i sat raw in a pile of wishes
beating myself up for self-perceived wrong decisions

it's true, it happens to the best of us

but that's when i discover why Abba sends us out in two's
because when one falls down, the other is there to help them up
we're stronger when we have a truth teller on our side
because truth is light, and it pierces through that darkness in hurried sparks
ready to evoke and enhance the faith we cling to

kevin has this way of making me laugh, smile, and bask in God's truth
the truth that blessing surrounds. 
no need to look elsewhere. 
the truth that i make good decisions
and that God is pleased with me, 
and his love is like a never-ending well springing forth acceptance at ALL times
so I praise our Father for the gift of a journeyer 
by my side
that has committed his life to Abba and to me
the "i do"
that means a lifetime of love, patience support, and truth. 

yes, it is a gift to journey with a man of the Lord. 
because all the niceties aside,
on those bad days,
God uses those that know us most,
to breath his deep life upon us. 

love Katie
