Thankful for affection...

What a wonderful gift marriage is, and what a sweet thing it is to have affection.  For those who are married, I'm sure you can attest to those wonderful times of hugs and kisses with the wifey.

My favorite moments of affection with my wifey:

5. Good morning kiss
4. Good night kiss
3. Off-to-work kiss
2. Welcome home kiss
1. After dinner hug and kiss

I need to remember to be thankful for such times, as they are a gift from God.  It's so easy to forget.  Even such sweet moments as these.  Isn't it the same way with how we view God?  He has shown us the greatest love, the sweetest, most genuine, most amazing love...and yet we so often forget God, complain to God, disobey God.  O that we would recall daily the love of God demonstrated through Christ in the good news of the gospel!

A good CD to help remind us through songs to keep our hearts fixed on the gospel is the CD to the left.  One song that I really love to sing is "Glories of Calvary."  What a sweet sweet song of adoration unto God because of the cross.

And this book, I highly recommend.  Buy it.  Borrow it.  Get your hands on it.  And then read it and really strive to apply the biblical principles taught in it.  But of course nothing beats reading and meditating on the Word of God.
