Moments With Marti

I love sharing what God has done in my life and the lessons that I have learned from each experience whether good or bad. There are many lessons that I have and am still learning. It's only been by His Grace that I can sit here today and without a doubt know that I am forever secure in His Love.
This blog is simply an avenue for me to share my heart felt thoughts from scripture as well as from my every day moments…My prayer is that there will be a small nugget of hope and encouragement that you can apply to your life as well.
Living By Grace,

Thirty Seven years ago today, I married the love of my life... A love like ours is not so common in today's world. I'm not saying we were the only ones with such a devoted covenant, but I am saying that because God was always the center of our relationship we were set up for success from the beginning. I am not saying there were never any rough times because there were, however not many. I'm not sharing this to draw attention to myself or to seek sympathy, but rather to point you toward The One Who held us together in good times and rough times... The One Who today has held me together as I continue on this journey without my husband. (you can read about here.... "My Journey Through Grief").

Actually, I am excited today to see how far God has brought me and I look forward with great expectation to see His plan unfold for me.   As I look back over the past few years, I can see now how God prepared me for "such a time as this". I have no regrets and I can honestly say without a doubt that that there was never anything undone or unsaid... God is Faithful..

One of God's promises that I hold to dearly is found in Hebrews 13:5  "Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,”

So here I sit, alone because my husband is no longer here, but oh, so "not alone" because of Christ!
