Worn Out.

What a day we've had, I'm definitely worn out and ready to rest.
This morning we went to church and heard a wonderful sermon on marriage which encouraged us especially at this time in our lives as newlyweds. After the service we went outside to our car only to realize that our tire was flat. After figuring out the problem Adam rolled up his sleeves in the cold 30 degree weather and started to lift up the car. Soon after a man with his 3 children came over to help us out. So many people stopped to ask if we needed their help which furthered our reasoning to stay at this church. Even though this church is...well...massive, we're starting to get connected and feel like people actually care. Once the spare was screwed in place and we drove off we quickly realized that the spare was flat as well. Immediately we both just sort of slumped into our seats thinking, "Really? Can we not just catch a break?". But we were blessed in that our church isn't very far from Costco so we trekked the major highway at 20 miles per hour in hopes that the auto area was open. Praise Jesus they were open! Since we didn't purchase our tires there they weren't legally able to do any work. Having heard our situation the guy did us a huge favor by airing up and patching the hole regardless. {For free!} 
No matter the challenge(s) we've been dealt lately I feel it's only made us closer as a couple and helped us to fully rely on Christ. Over and over again these verses, specifically v.28, came to mind today.

 Romans 26-28Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God's Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don't know how or what to pray, it doesn't matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That's why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.
 We've now settled in the for night {I swear we sound like a retired couple in Florida} and are washing about 17 loads of laundry. Don't judge me, so maybe I've been a little behind on my chores. This new week starts tomorrow and I'm wishing, hoping, praying for a little ease on the mishaps. A more uplifting post tomorrow I promise. Have a fabulous Sunday evening and a bright start to your Monday morning.
