All the Little Things That Define Marriage – Part Two

No commentary necessary.

judiannablog

Back in the day, I was a budding writer. I was part of the inaugural group of the “Colorado Voices” in the Denver Post.

In August of 2001, on our anniversary as a matter of fact, my piece was published.

I’d meant it as a tribute to my husband, and it means even more to me today.

So, if you’ll indulge me, I’d like to share it with you now with an update.

All the Little Things That Define Marriage

A pat on the backside. A quick hug in the hallway.

The Morse codes of romance that you learn after you’ve survived the ritual mating dance.

Once you’ve spent the requisite time waiting for the other shoe to drop and then figuring out that it’s never going to, you settle into a comfort zone with your mate. Sure, the initial wild excitement and the giddy romance are nice, but they…

Talon’s Point of the Day -Aug 4th, 2016 Your Delilah

Everyone, male or female, rich or poor, young or old, of every color and creed faces a Delilah in their life. It’s often not a person, and if confronted and overcome, will be displaced by a new Delilah. In our youth it may well be a person. As we age it could be anything. For a period of time for me it was twitter and other social media. Anyone, or anything that draws us from our God ordained purpose has become our Delilah. Ask yourself, “Who, or what is my Delilah?” Better yet, ask God.

Talon’s Point – July 27th, 2016 Hellish Trinkets

Take great care what you allow to become important to you. Material things can be so costly, well beyond financial, especially as the financial cost escalates. This world often fixates on the personal treasures left behind by those who have passed into eternity. People like Elizabeth Taylor, with the jewels she thought she owned, or J. Paul Getty, who thought he possessed so many historical items, purchased with his temporal material wealth, that said items literally filled a museum. Both clearly held these items as important to who they were. Yet, if they entered eternity without Christ, and there is sadly no evidence I know of that they didn’t, then the things they held so important were nothing more than hell’s traps.

On our own simple scale we can be just like the rich, placing improper importance on eternally useless things, keeping us focused not on our standing with God, but on what is ultimately hellish trinkets.

Talons Point of the Day – July 26th, 2016 Royalty of Rags

You may wonder why God has left you in poverty until the point where you have little left but rags for clothes. But just as rags and old clothes were used to lift Jeremiah from impending doom, your rags will be the very thing God uses to lift you from your poverty and place you in his royal courtyard. Your father in heaven is not ignoring you. He sees the decay of all that is not eternal. He’s using your rags to develop an unshakeable trust in him. So take a good look at yourself my friend, for God has entrusted you with the royalty of rags.
