Top 13 in 2013

2013-  It had moments of happiness when Dr. Smartypants graduated with his Phd and moments of sadness when we received a phone call about the unexpected, very sudden death of my husband’s father.  It was also full of moments of thankfulness as we watched our baby become a toddler.  He brings so much joy to our life!!

2013 has come and gone.  My marriage is at the best place its been.  My husband’s and my spiritual life is at its highest as we both have figured out our Godly roles in marriage.  We aren’t perfect and still struggle as any couple does, but we have finally got our priorities straight- God first, marriage second, children third.  We’ve discovered that if you do it in this order, everything falls into place because that is how God designed it!  By putting God first, our marriage has flourished and when our marriage is flourishing, we do a much better job of parenting.

We are excited for 2014.  We pray God blesses ours and yours!

For the final day of 2013, I leave you with the top 13 posts of Crayon Marks and Tiger Stripes.  I am so thankful for the blessings that writing brings and I am so thankful for all my readers!!  I love that God is using this blog as a ministry!! All Glory to Him!!!

    2013 brought a lot of good and bad, but how exciting to be moving on to 2014!

    Praying for you, your husband, and your family as you grieve the loss of your father in law.
