Do you believe that your marriage will be better when the other person gets their act together? Hmmm.

“Brethren, even if anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, so that you too will not be tempted” (Galatians 6.1).

“Each one looking at themselves!!!”

Father, free me to look at my stuff and turn and look at YOU!



Reflecting on our 40th wedding anniversary today…


Thankful for Sweetness’ willingness to allow the Lord to form us into His image – together.
Surprised at how fast it has all gone.
Humbled by what Jesus has taught us through His supernatural love.
Grateful for a loving family – physically and in the Spirit – who has walked through the years with us.
Proud of our sons – Brandon and Brycen.
Delighted to lay by Robyn and wake up next to her every day.
Astounded that the Spirit of God has just begun to reveal Himself to us.
Anticipating that the 41st will be our best.

The Other’s Fullness


Love is not just about avoiding the bad stuff – an unkind word, a thoughtless act, a selfish anything. Love is about expanding the best in the one we love. It is an intentional movement toward the other’s fullness. “It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13
