A Blessing for Cristin...

Oh God of all Glory,
Who inclines His ear to the cries of His own,
Who draws near to the broken and enables the crushed in spirit,
hear me now:
Bless the womb that carries this one
so faithfully, so carefully.
Bless the work of her hands and the song of her heart.
Bless the eyes that stand watch and the love that protects.
Bless the mouth that speaks Truth and the faith that brings healing.
Bless the womb that carries this one
so faithfully, so carefully.
Carry her on, Oh God,
and enable her to stand on the heights.
Bless her, Oh God.
Please bless my love.



  1. It is only through testing that strength and character is truly revealed. It is beautiful to see. I am sorry for the testing but blessed by what God reveals in you both. God has truly blessed.

    Proverbs 31:10 A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.
    11 Her husband has full confidence in her
    and lacks nothing of value.
    12 She brings him good, not harm,
    all the days of her life.
    23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
    where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
    \25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
    she can laugh at the days to come.
    26 She speaks with wisdom,
    and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
    27 She watches over the affairs of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.
    28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
    29 “Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.”
    30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
    31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

  2. I said to Jeff, "You've got to read John's latest blog post. It's amazing, it's like Psalm status." It's not sacrilegious to compare you to David, right? ;)
    It's a blessing to watch the love between you grow deeper and fuller. Thank you for letting us be a part of your journey. -Cassie
