Ten Years!!

Tomorrow is our 10 year Anniversary. It's so hard to believe that ten years has gone by, and boy, has it gone quickly!! These were some of my favorite photos (I tried to limit the photos of just the kids). We have had many adventures these last ten years. I wrote along letter about it, but decided it would be just for my hubby. But, here's the short video of photos I made for him, I am not a pro at this, but just thought it would be nice to look back on some of these things. (hopefully, it will load for you, but it may take a while!!)
The song playing in the background played at our wedding.

In the last ten years, we have
And so much more...
I can honestly say that I love my husband more than I did ten years ago.
And I love Jesus more than I did ten years ago.
And I will say that again in ten more years, if He should give them to us.
Praise You, Jesus.

Oh Father... thank you so much for these last ten years with my husband. Thank you for how how much our marriage has taught me about You, and Your faithful love, Your never-stopping, never-giving up love. Teach me Lord, to be a good helper for Ben, more and more with every year you give us. May our marriage reflect You, and Your tender love for Your bride!!

The perfect Servant-Leader

"Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to Him, saying, 'Teacher, we want You to do for us whatever we ask.'"
(These are the words a Master would use, not servants!!!)
"And He said to them, 'What do you want Me to do for you?'"
Mark 10:35-36

Jesus, the perfect Servant-Leader. He is so good, so kind, so gracious. I am not nearly as gracious to the little people who constantly speak to me with the words a Master would use.

Oh Lord, make this the attitude of my heart!! May the words, "What do you want me to do for you?" come quickly to my lips and my heart... to the little ones who make demands of me, and most importantly, to You, my Lord. When I sense the movement of Your Spirit, may I be quick to be Your servant, and to not think of myself as a master.
