It is Marriage Monday and e-Mom over at Chrysalis has invited several of us bloggers to hostess this monthly event. This Monday Robyn at Overflowing Grace is our hostess. My turn is February and my topic is going to be fun. The Surprise of Christian Marriage. Can’t wait. Today our topic is. The GRACE of Christian marriage.
The time changed last night. The sky was dusky as my husband shrugged on his sweatshirt. I zipped up my jacket and we stepped out into the cool air.
Mmmmmm, my favorite time of year. Leaves tumbled down the street and my little dog pulled against his collar in an attempt to chase one. My husband took my hand and we walked.
Our afternoon dog walks are a peaceful time of togetherness. We often talk about mundane stuff in our marriage. We laugh at our goofy dog that wants to play fetch but looses interest instantly by some offensive but interesting smell in the grass. We spend time together just talking and walking.
Holding his hand I said, “Honey, What is grace?”
He paused, “I am not sure I know.” I waited and watched him process his answer. “I guess it would be forgiveness, understanding, kindness.” He looked at me while the dog ran on ahead.
“Do we have that in our marriage?”
“Yes, I think we do.”
I grasped his hand tighter and felt warm inside. I smiled up at his face, “I think we do too.”
God’s grace, His unmerited favor, is everywhere in our home. I see His grace in the mundane, the spectacular, and the love in my husband’s eyes. We have grace in our unequally yoked marriage, God’s grace.
1 Corinthians 1:3 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Be Blessed, Lynn

Marching Around Jericho is a spiritual guide. As you read through the pages, powerful and transformative instruction and equipping takes place. We follow Jesus as he leads us around the walls, imparting kingdom truths with each passing, finally arriving at the gates of the walled-off city, our spouse’s unbelieving heart. After the circles in prayer are complete, we arrive fully prepared to command the walls to crumble and be removed, making a way for our spouse to step from the rubble of lies and captivity, into faith and freedom!
