Love, More Than Words

July 25, 2016 Tara Joy 0

Hi Every One! Today I am blogging about LOVE at over at on 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. When we are at the alter on our wedding day, promising to love the other person for the rest of our lives, we smile and think about how wonderful and easy it will be. We feel love overflowing from our core of what the future with our new spouse may hold.   Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record [Continue Reading…]

  Today is my husband and I’s anniversary! Another year down together, with a lifetime to go. We’re not doing much for gifts this year, with a tighter budget we are putting off the gifts. So instead I thought I would publicly praise and brag about my amazing husband. Here is a short list of some of the things I absolutely love about my husband. He is loyal to a fault. He is always honest, even when I don’t want to hear the truth. He works so hard to take care of our family. He sacrifices so that our family [Continue Reading…]

Marriage is more than the wedding

Marriage is More Than The Wedding.

August 5, 2015 Tara Joy 1

This past weekend I had the honor of attending my beautiful cousins wedding. I haven’t seen her and or most of that side of the family in close to ten years, so it was a real treat for me. I couldn’t help but tear up as I watched her exchange vows of commitment to her new husband, promising to stand by him in good, bad and when you just don’t feel like it. The evidence of God being at the center of their relationship and now marriage was more than apparent, it was overflowing into the atmosphere around them. As [Continue Reading…]

Being Unequally Yoked is a Blessing

October 27, 2014 Tara Joy 14

There’s a tough road that some women walk. A road that has them in the valley on a daily basis. If they do or say anything contrary to the Christian walk it could mean pushing their closest loved one away from God. It is the long and weary road of being Unequally Yoked. If you grew up as a Christian, you knew that it is commanded to marry a believer. But what about the women who came to Christ after they were married? What about the ones who are unequally yoked? Being unequally yoked can be lonely and exhausting, including [Continue Reading…]
