The ride comes back around
I am so blessed to have my perfect partner to go through life with. Whenever I need a physical reminder of who God is, I look at my caring and faithful husband. I would not want to endure the roller coasters of life with anyone else. (Actual roller coasters are another story; he screams like a girl.) I am also abundantly blessed to have a God who puts me through trials that help me grow stronger, yet never forces me to go through them alone. While I prefer the rides at an amusement park to the roller coasters in life, I can honestly say as it says in James 1:2-4 that I consider it a joy to watch my God work in my life and mold me more into the person He wants me to be. It has taken me a number of such roller coasters to come to that point, but God knew just what I needed to get there. For that, and for the fact that God is a God who appreciates irony, I am grateful.
