Welcome my name is Sherri. I am a follower of Jesus. I have been blessed to be the wife to my best friend Markiel. I am a mother to my tween son Amari and my preschool daughter Sanai. By God's grace I have found true joy in serving my family in our home. Even amongst all the everyday craziness I know this where God has called me to be. I learn something new everyday. I also recently became a part time bible teacher at my daughter's preschool. So I have the best of both worlds.

You Never Know Who's Watching

Hi, thanks for stopping by.  I know you must be new here, because I am new. Please check out 
My Story to get to know me better or subscribe here. Welcome!

I am so glad to be back after spending a great Christmas with my family.  I pray you all were blessed this Christmas as well.  

This Christmas my family had dinner at my sister's house.  This has become the norm for Christmas, since my sister has a beautiful house, that can fit the whole family plus more.  Not to mention my sister  has a gift for hosting and always makes her home so inviting.  

I just love when my family gets together for holidays.  We are all just so crazy.  You know how it is. The kids finish opening their gifts, they are running around and dancing to music.  The game is on the t.v., and the volume level in the room, let's just say, is above normal. You know it's loud when at times you have to use your "outside voice" just to talk to the person next to you.  There are always many conversations going on all at once. Everyone is eating something, they're passing around food and desserts.  This is what Christmas is about.  It just wouldn't be the same if it was any different.  

As I was going about my night I began to have a conversation with my mom.  She was teasing me about how she finally got a chance to talk to me, because I was with my husband the whole night.  Honestly I didn't even notice until she had mentioned it.  I was just doing what came natural, and that was spending time with my best friend.  

Then my mom had mentioned that another person said, "They look like two love birds together."  This comment was very encouraging to me.  First because it was coming from someone that I didn't even think was noticing us.  It made me think about the influence my actions and marriage could have on others, especially my children.  

Secondly, it was a blessing to hear because it was a confirmation of how much God is truly working in my marriage.  This made me think back to the times when my hubby and I would let the tensions of the moment get the best of us.  By the time we would get to our destination we were barely speaking to each other.  This was a big change from those days.  

I'm so thankful we are now more aware of our actions.  We now try to work harder at not letting ourselves get back to that point again.  

Who knows who could of noticed us during those times.  I just think of the negative example it portrayed to anyone that we may have encountered.  My marriage is definitely a work in progress. Hubby and I continually take steps both backwards and then forward when it comes to our marriage.  The one thing that I do know, and that continues to give me hope, is that I serve a God that is faithful.  When I go to Him with my marriage and I pray for Him to help me improve my negative behaviors, He hears my prayers. Then with all of His loving kindness He answers my prayers. That is the testimony that I want to share with everyone that I encounter. 

I pray God continues to work in my marriage.  I pray God allows my marriage to be only a positive influence, encouraging and inspiring  any and everyone that I meet.  In Jesus Name Amen! 

What do you think others see when they look at your marriage?
What influence do you think your marriage has on others?
