Joy is not the abscence of trouble, but the unmistakable presence of Christ!
Be blessed folks,
Success is not a one time event, but a lifetime of God honoring.
What’s the point of getting married? No really. It seems that currently in the state of our culture, marriage has been devalued. Our society has shifted from a God fearing, held to a higher being than our own selves kind of lifestyle to a grab some Jesus in the drive through and make sure that no one’s feelings are hurt or feel left out kind of life, those principles that made people more accountable and upstanding are falling by the way side.
I reflect on this often, but as I was reading an article titled, “Not Married, Not Single”, in my November 2012 issue (yea I am a little behind) of Essence magazine, I felt myself cringe.
A few weeks ago, we took the munchkin to his two month check up, oh how time flies. They went through all of the normal procedures – the strip him down to naked and take his weight, stretch him long to get his length, and then wrap the tape measure around his head and measure his head. All is well, he’s a healthy little much!!
We didn’t come to this conclusion easily though. After the nurses aide took his measurements the doctor came in to check him out, find out what he is doing new, how we are adjusting, etc. She looks down at his measurement and say’s “oh that cant be right”. She proceeds to tell us that his head measure is pretty big and had increased a great amount between now and his two week visit. She re-measured and affirmed the measurement taken, then asks, “so who has a big head between the two of you?”
