It's official! I've been married
one month one month AND one day :)
|WE DID IT! Knucks!|
Being married is such a wonderful blessing. How awesome is Our God? He led me to my perfect person, the love of my life, my best friend. I love that I will forever be not only his wife, but his help mate.
The first month of marriage was super busy! We moved all of R's things to my house, so we are now living together (which means finding creative ways to store all of our things). We also went on our honeymoon; we sailed to Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay & Nassau Bahamas. So relaxing. It was hard to come back to the reality of finalizing his move, and going back to the working grind. I still have plenty that needs to be done on my end, all the name change stuff. Who would have thought it'd be SO much? Social Security office, drivers license office, bank information, oh my! I now understand why some women don't change their names. Geez. But it's so worth it. I am proud to be the new Mrs. B :) I will just be happy when things wind down just a bit more. We have a date night Friday night, and I can't wait!
I want to not only please my husband, but more importantly God. I will always strive to be a Proverbs 31 type of woman. Thanks to Mandy at She Breathes Deeply because she already had Proverbs 31 typed up, so I could simply copy and paste!
10 Who can find a virtuous wife?
For her worth is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
So he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
13 She seeks wool and flax,
And willingly works with her hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
She brings her food from afar.
15 She also rises while it is yet night,
And provides food for her household,
And a portion for her maidservants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
From her profits she plants a vineyard.
17 She girds herself with strength,
And strengthens her arms.
18 She perceives that her merchandise is good,
And her lamp does not go out by night.
19 She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
And her hand holds the spindle.
20 She extends her hand to the poor,
Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of snow for her household,
For all her household is clothed with scarlet.
22 She makes tapestry for herself;
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates,
When he sits among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
And supplies sashes for the merchants.
25 Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She watches over the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “ Many daughters have done well,
But you excel them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
And let her own works praise her in the gates.
