Married Life

18 February 2014

Over here I gave 16 Reasons Why Mr J Derserves A Dozen Cupcakes. Almost four months have passed since I posted that. They are all still very true with additions to be made. Within this short amount of time though, I feel as though my world has been turned upside down (in a good way!). I'm now married to my best friend. Late night goodbyes and early morning messages have now turned into late night kisses and early morning cuddles. Creating a home and learning more about each other everyday is something I would never change. Although I have only been in the married club for two weeks and two days, I can't wait for the future challenges and excitements that we can tackle as a team, with God by our side.

Mr J went back to his day job yesterday. Reality is back. However, looking back on the day there are way more positives than negatives. Mr J's hardworking attitude has given him an opportunity to be acting manager at his current job. His first day in this position was everything he could have asked for and more. Smiles all around. I worked an early shift before coming home to tackle the dishes, make the bed, argue with the washing machine and cook dinner. Although these chores don't sound appealing, it's all new to me and I'm having fun! Having a productive day, gave me time to also sit down with a cup of tea and my bible. Reality with Mr J as my husband excites me. I'm looking forward to creating an encouraging and relaxed home with him and our Lord.

Thanks to our families and friends for being an inspiration, role models and support.


  1. My prayer for you today is taken from '365 Daily Devotions for Women'...
    Lord, Your Holy Word contains promises, and I will trust them. I will use the Bible as my guide, and I will trust You, Lord, to speak to me through Your Holy Spirit and through Your Holy Word, this day and forever. Amen
    I pray that you will continue to take time out with God every day. Just as you enjoy your tea and I enjoy my coffee, we need to sit with God every day (and most importantly every busy day) and enjoy His Holy Word.

    1. Thank you so much. It is amazing how powerful a prayer and moment with God can be.
