Birthdays

Ps 139:13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

Jn 3:3 In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.

Today is my husband’s birthday.  I praise God for knitting him together in his mother’s womb.  I praise God for creating his inmost being.  But he remained a creation of God until we were both into our mid 30/s.  It was then we were both born anew.  We both changed dramatically after that and continue to change as we grow in God each day.  I praise God for my husband’s creation birthday.  But I praise Him even more for my husband’s spiritual birth.  Our marriage would have failed if we had continued in the direction we were each going before we received Jesus into our lives.  Now we are in our 46th year of marriage.  We have learned Jesus is the head of our marriage, not either of us.  We have learned to love each other with the love given through us by God, not just the physical love of human creations.  I take this day to thank God for my husband and his relationship with God.  I pray the same for those of you who are married.  It starts with you, not your spouse.
