if you saw the title and got all excited b/c you thought you would be reading about someone getting healed or someone being raised from the dead, i apologize. actually, i don’t apologize b/c the miracle i’m going to talk about is a pretty big deal. in my opinion. when i was at the beach over memorial day weekend i got to witness a true miracle marriage. as i mentioned in a previous post, i went to the beach with misty, her husband scott, thier two children, eli and emma, and misty’s mother, jo margaret (she hates it when i call her that). scott’s parents and his brother’s family were also there. misty and scott have been married for 9 years. i can remember when they first started dating. i love watching two people in the beginning stages of their relationship. b/c everything is great and they are all googely eyes over each other and just so smitten with each other. well, i hope misty and scott won’t mind me sharing this. the past couple of years haven’t been great for them as far as their relationship is concerned. i guess you could say they hit some “rough waters”. i can’t tell you how much prayer i’ve put in for these two. and i hate to admit it but i really was doubting whether they would make it. i guess about a month or two ago misty shared with me that things had turned around and they were doing great. but you just never know until you can see it first hand. one of my prayers for them was that God would remind them of why they fell in love in the first place. and that He would help them fall back in love. one of the things that bothered me about their relationship was that they clearly didn’t respect each other. and i felt that they both were focused on what the other person could do for them instead of what they could do for each other. well let me just say that misty wasn’t kidding when she said that her and scott were doing better. it was like watching them when they first fell in love. actually, if i’m really honest, i’ve never witnessed them like this. it was almost to the point that you might thinkg, “gah, y’all are making me sick”. but i was so ecstatic that i loved watching them. i’ve never seen them treat each other the way they did. i really believe that the Lord just stepped in and turned things around b/c there are no other explanations for how different their marriage is. and not only do i love it for them but what a great example they are setting for their children as well. they have made a conscious effort to make their relationship work. i am not married so i can only speculate at how hard it can be to be married. i believe that it’s work. i think if you get married and think it’s going to be a cake walk you are sadly disillusioned. i’m super excited for them and their family. i know you might be reading this and think it’s not that big of a deal but it is. marriage is a miracle anyway and to see first hand this marriage be turned around. i thank the Lord that He cared enough for them to step in and literally save their marriage. misty and scott, thank you for the example you have set for me and others. i love y’all.
i am a daughter, a sister, and a friend. i am a lover of jesus, music, books and all things children. i don’t pretend to be the best blogger nor the most consistent one but i blog none the less. i hope you enjoy.
