December is always a particular month for me. Naturally, I enjoy all of the typical things that most people love about the month. The crisp feel of cold weather, the joy of Christmas time, and the pending start of a new year. However, this month is always extra special for me. The month of December carries a few commemorative celebrations that I uniquely enjoy.
Here are a few of the most significant:
As of this writing, I am mere hours past the completion of all of these annual celebrations. 39 years of life, 17 years of marriage, and 6 years of ministry. When I sat down at my laptop, I contemplated what I'd write about. I knew that I had to be reflective of my experiences, or at a minimum, celebratory of these recent events. Without question, I know that I am blessed. God has been wonderfully good to me, and all that I have is because of Him and His goodness.
"As of this writing, I am mere hours past the completion of all of these annual celebrations. 39 years of life, 17 years of marriage, and 6 years of ministry."
Then it hit me. I understood that the very best thing that I could do with this writing was being honest, open, and vulnerable. I decided that I would share with you all the lessons that each of these advancements taught me. I'd unpack how reflectively they've shaped me and even more important, how they've forced me to be better. Today, I'll share how each of these, from the eldest to the earliest, provided me with some much-needed insight. In this share, I pray it aids you.
"It took me 17 years to understand that the greatest gift you have in marriage isn't flowers, jewelry, couple photos, or even romantic trips. The greatest gift that you have in marriage is a unified commitment to love, prayer, and faith."
I could go on and on about all three of these topics. I'm assured after I read this, I'll wish I said something else or nothing at all. Still, in the spirit of our community, I have learned the power of acknowledging that I am indeed a Perfectly Imperfect Perfectionist who serves a Perfect God, Who's always perfecting me.
