A Little Encouragement

I am now completing the second week of school schedule, which means that CC and I have seen each other very little! And on top of not seeing him during the week, I had a very busy Saturday with a baby shower and a bachelorette party, both things CC could not join me for. Needless to say, it's been a little lonely. It's been hard. It's taken some work and creativity to communicate to each other without getting frustrated with the lack of time for communication.

To help me out, I looked up some verses to help encourage the situation. God has put this situation before us for me to trust and turn to Him.

Psalm 28:7 - The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to Him.

Jeremiah 17:7 - Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD.

James 5:11 - Behold, we consider those blessed who remained steadfast. You have heard of the steadfastness of Job, and you have seen the purpose of the Lord, how the Lord is compassionate and merciful.

James 1: 2-4 - Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.


  1. Thanks for posting those verses.
    3+I'll send up a little prayer that you and your hubby will find some time to spend together soon!

  2. The weird typos? Thanks to my cat Sylvester who wanted some love and acchieved her goal by walking on my keyboard.

  3. Thanks for the helpful verses! I've noticed that when hubby and I are at our worst due to the total lack of communication, what helps us the best is looking to the Lord to remind us what our marriage is all about. Thanks.
