message to the Bride

It is Friday morning and I and eagerly awaiting Saturday. Not to get done with this extra long week but to FINALLY celebrate the marriage of a dear sister. As I can already hear the minister announces “I present to you for the first time ANYWHERE Mr. & Mrs. Keith & Zushanna Turner”, I can’t help but want to pour a few more words into her heart. What would I say?


HHmmm…

Zushanna, as you begin your new stage of life and womanhood keep these simple rules in mind:

First: Continue to nurture you relationship with your Heavenly Father. Pray, seek his face; make him the center of your marriage and life. Pray with and for your husband. And just when you think you have prayed enough, pray some more.

Second: Minister to your husband. “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord” Keith has found a great thing and the favor of God rests upon him. Let him know that “you got his back”. Continue to make him smile and laugh. Bless him with your words and actions and most importantly, your love. But make sure to let him wear the pants and you continue to rock the pretty skirts and dresses. When he falls…and he will, lol, be the one to pick him up, and encourage him to continue on, knowing that you are by his side. Don’t belittle him or dog him out with others.

Third: Care for your children. When the Lord blesses you with children, I have no doubt that you would be a great mom. Remember to train them up in the way of our Lord. They will watch your every move, unfortunately a little more than your words. But never-the-less pray over them. And pray for them even now.

Fourth: Care for your home. It is to be a place filled with peace, love and comfort; especially after a hard day on the job. Ask God to change your outlook on your home from running it to loving it.

Last but absolutely not least: Take care of yourself. Exercise and nourish your mind and body and spirit. Pick up a hobby that is solely for you, that makes you happy. Continue to be the loving sweet Zu that we all know and love.

Muahs!!
