B90 Days/Completing Him Challenge

{If you are here from the Completing Him Challenge, you will see that post below.}

I love Jesus!
Yes I do!
love Jesus!
How about you?

PhotobucketI had this little cheer going through my mind the whole time I was reading throughout this week! I love my Heavenly Father and I just felt like shouting it out! He is an awesome God, but reading through His word these past 35 days has made that even more clear!

He has always provided for His people! He has always forgiven those who were worthy and repented of their sins! He has always loved...even when we were far from deserving His love! {If that doesn't make you want to shout His love from the rooftops, then I don't know what will!}

I say it over and over again how truly thankful and blessed I have been to be a part of this challenge!

Amy at Mom's Toolbox wanted us to share this week where we are spending time in our Father's presence! {What a cool idea!}

My goal when starting this challenge was to get up earlier than my kids and spend an hour with Jesus in the morning. Well...God had other plans, because my son has not let this happen at all! {he is awake right along with me! and what a distraction he is...but a cute one!}

One of my favorite places to read has been my back porch in the cool of the evening when the sun is just starting to set. The kiddos are sound asleep and I can just come into my Father's presence with no distractions! My husband has joined me and I have been reading aloud to him and that has made the time so much more enjoyable!

Another spot I find comfort in is my bed! When the day has just been too much, all I want is to snuggle up in my comfy, cozy, bed, and just "destress" in God's word!

Whenever I have just a few minutes here or there throughout the day, I can be found, on the couch, with my Bible in my hands!

No matter where, or when, you find the time to read His word and spend time in His presence, just do it! You will be so glad that you did!

{Please know and believe that I am praying for everyone taking part in this challenge! May God continue to help you and bless you as you reach your goal and to make time for Him and His word each and everyday!}

Photobucket The final week! I can't believe it!

I have truly enjoyed this challenge from Week #1!

I feel like my marriage has learned alot and grown a lot from this challenge. {and my husband and I have both been  blessed!}

This weeks topic is Kiss Him Like You Mean It!

My husband is a kisser! {and a good one at that!}

He has always been a very affectionate person. Always wanting to hug and kiss and just be right next to each other{me, not so much!}

Don't get me wrong, I love the attention, but I am just not as much of a "touchy feely" person as he is.

Has this caused problems for us within our marriage? Yes!

Is it something that we have discussed over and over again with each other? Yes!

I am learning to be more of what my husband needs and also more about  myself and my needs in the process. 

Sex is so very important in a marriage and I don't think anyone truly realizes just how important until they are married and experiencing it all for themselves. 

God put so much emphasis about sex within marriage that He wrote a whole book about it! {Song of Songs}

I am my lover's and my lover is mine.~ Song of Songs 6:3

How beautiful your sandaled feet, O prince's daughter! Your graceful legs are like jewels, the work of a craftsman's hands. Your navel is a rounded goblet that never lacks blended wine. Your waist is a mound of wheat encircled by lilies. Your breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle. Your neck is like an ivory tower. Your eyes are the pools of Heshbon by the gate of Bath Rabbim. Your nose is like the tower of Lebanon looking toward Damascus. Your head crowns you like Mount Carmel. Your hair is like royal tapestry; the king is held captive by its tresses. How beautiful you are and how pleasing, O love, with your delights! Your stature is like that of the palm, and your breasts like clusters of fruit.
 I said, "I will climb the palm tree; I will take hold of its fruit." May your breasts be like the clusters of the vine, the fragrance of your breath like apples, and your mouth like the best wine. May the wine go straight to my lover, flowing gently over lips and teeth. I belong to my lover, and his desire is for me. ~ Song of Songs 7:1-10

I know my husbands needs, desires, and requests are not something to be ignored. Through prayer and faithfulness I know I will become more of what he requests and desires of me. It is something that we have been praying about from the beginning and something that I already see God changing in me!

Thank you, again, so much Courtney for hosting this challenge! I have learned a lot and have been blessed from it! May God continue to do mighty works in you and continue to bless your marriage!

The wife's body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way, the husband's body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife. 1 Corinthians 7:4
