Just amazing to me

how God puts that one person in your life, with the right words at EXACTLY the right time!  It never ceases to amaze me how He knows just what I need and when I need it.  I received an email today from a person, who shall remain nameless, and it read;

When I think about my marriage it often feels hopeless. Like things will never change. He'll never appreciate what I do and I'll never be good enough to make him happy. He'll never be satisfied. Then I get these "little love notes from God" to remind me that I'm forgetting Who I'm dealing with here. Let's keep our faith and never give up. Because our husbands are wrong about us. We AREN'T quitters and we don't give up on everything. Not the things that matter. God will get us through this because we are worthy of true happiness and we are doing the right thing.

I know I don't have to tell you that marriage is not easy.  It takes a lot of hard work and even then it might not be enough to get you through.  My marriage, like many I am sure, has seen it's fair share of struggles and feelings of hopelessness.  As recent as yesterday quite frankly.  We are two totally different people.  I am sweet and docile and he is very hard headed and abrasive.  Okay who am I kidding, I am a strong willed, stubborn women who has a tongue on her like a serpent at times.  I need God to keep His arm around my shoulder and His hand over my mouth most days.

As I opened this email with an attachment to a devotional from Joel Osteen, whom I love by the way, it spoke to my heart in a way I don't think I can describe here.  It was EXACTLY what I needed to hear and EXACTLY the right time.  Why did I get that?  Because God knows my heart, and because I have am amazing friend who can read my mind!  As I get back on track here in the Sanchez house I will be on my knees a lot more praying that He shows me the way to be who He wants me to be in this marriage.  We all know that is the only way this will work!

Keep putting it in GOD's hands! He is obviously working in your life and in your marriage! I'll say a special prayer for you too! HUGS!

So, I was just looking at your blog and I realized something. maybe it's just me in my current "Nutso-ness" but, Noah looks like Bradley Dylan the older he gets. Weird because I always though BD looks like Brad. So, whatever, just thought I'd tell you that... And, it's rainy and cooler here in KY today - can I come see you????
