1 Thessalonians 1:2, 3  We always thank God for all of you., making mention of you constantly in our prayers. We recall, in the presence of our God and Father, your work produced by faith, your labor motivated by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.  (CSB)

Thanksgiving Day this year marked my parents’ sixty-first wedding anniversary. That’s a good long time. My bride and I will need another twenty-five years to make it that far. 

Perseverance, endurance, patience, and kindness in abundance are required to produce that kind of staying power. They have bypassed many off-ramps to arrive where they are. What has kept them together has been much stronger than what threatened to tear them apart. For this, I am forever grateful. 

Who are the marriage pacesetters for you? What couples do you know who have hung in there through thick or thin for decades? Let us give thanks for them today. Let us make an ever more resolute connection with those we live in deep and abiding relationship with. 

Let us give thanks for love, real love, that goes the distance, that deepens by the day, that broadens over a lifetime, and that lifts us to new heights with every challenge overcome.-

 

I will give thanks for love that endures.

Our Father, thank you for husbands and wives who demonstrate deep devotion and determined staying power. Give us love that goes the distance. Teach us the beautiful blessing of enriching relationships. Amen.

Daily D – Jonah 4:1-3

Jonah 4:1-3 Jonah was greatly displeased and became furious. He prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, isn’t this what I said while I was still in my own country? That’s why I fled toward Tarshish in the first place. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger, abounding in faithful love, and one who relents from sending disaster. And now, Lord, take my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live.”

Daily D – Psalm 128:1-4

Psalm 128:1-4

How happy is everyone who fears the LORD,
who walks in his ways!
You will surely eat
what your hands have worked for.
You will be happy,
and it will go well for you.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house,
your children, like young olive trees
around your table.
In this very way
the man who fears the LORD
will be blessed.
